School is closed today, but the Nassau Coliseum is most definitely open! The Islanders will be celebrating Kids Day when they take on the Buffalo Sabres, beginning at 2 PM. All fans 14-and-under will receive a Bill Guerin kids jersey, courtesy of RexCorp. But the fun starts before the puck drops.

The Islanders RV will be equipped with hockey video games, and all of the interactive inflatable games will be set up for the kids to enjoy.
