THE LONELY ISLAND BOYS: Caldwell noted the Islanders' average attendance ranked 29th in the NHL this season before Monday's game against the Hurricanes, which “drew a season-low 9,622.” Only the Coyotes, with an average of 12,348, have "lured fewer fans." The organization said that Nassau Coliseum “hasn't affected its play or the crowds.” Caldwell noted attendance is “actually up: The Islanders were dead last in attendance two years ago, averaging 11,059.” Islanders Communications Dir Kimber Auerbach said that season-ticket sales are “higher than a year ago” (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 2/12).
