A contingent of "Nordiques Nation" are headed to Nassau Coliseum on Saturday to protest outside the Islanders' home game against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Seems they want some hockey back in their homeland.

But don't they know that Georges St-Pierre, a native Quebecois (from Montreal) is fighting tonight at UFC 124. . . in Montreal?!? They couldn't have picked a different game to go? 

Odd.
