The Coliseum is an Islanders carnival tonight!

With an array of inflatable carnival staples, like an obstacle course and giant slide, kids with over-sized No. 91 jerseys are pouring in and of-age fans are tailgating outside.  The Potvin, Bossy, Trottier and two championship banners have been lowered to ground level, along with the jumboTron, which will broadcast the draft.  Oh, and fans can grow a little hair on their faces thanks to a Gillies' Stash Station, where fake mustaches are being sold.
