  NHL Winter Classic 2018: Rangers' Lundqvist looks to remain perfect outdoors Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has never lost in three outdoor games, and hopes to keep that streak intact at the NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day against the Sabres.Winning.

After more than four decades playing in Long Island 's Nassau Coliseum , the New York Islanders will move to Brooklyn's Barclays Center next season. Nassau Coliseum has been the home of the New York Islanders since 1972.

We've received your submission. Back to Reading. The Islanders are not going to play six games at the Nassau Coliseum next season.

The New York Islanders may play in a familiar arena while their new arena at Belmont Park is being built. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly has stated that the league would be open to the idea of the Isles skating at Nassau Coliseum, their home between 1972 and 2015, while they wait for their new home to be completed.

Daly spoke with Newsday about the Islanders’ arenas, saying that he “wouldn’t rule it out as a possibility” regarding the team going back to their old building.

Currently, the Islanders plan to play the 2018-19 season at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, as stated in their current lease. Beyond that, the Isles would be free to temporarily return to the Coliseum before shifting to Belmont Park.

Jets on roll heading into meeting with Avalanche

  Jets on roll heading into meeting with Avalanche The Colorado Avalanche are believers, and they are starting to back up that feeling with their play. A year after posting an NHL-worst 48 points and 22 wins, the Avalanche could match the win total if they close out the homestand on a five-game winning streak. That would require winning the next three games against quality teams.

When the New York Islanders play the Columbus Blue Jackets in their final regular-season game at Nassau Coliseum (7, NHL Network) Saturday, it will mark the end of an era more than the loss of a historic arena.

Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is the greatest place on earth, or at least I thought so as a kid. The massive arena hosted New York Islanders games , Monster Jam, the circus, and concerts. How can you compete with that?

A representative from Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment said that the Coliseum is “prepared to facilitate any necessary enhancements” in order to bring the Islanders back temporarily.

Should the Islanders return to the Coliseum, they will find it’s not quite how they left it. For starters, it’s now named NYCB Live and it reopened in March of 2017 following a needed renovation costing $165 million.

With the Barclays Center sitting as a pretty horrible destination to watch or play a hockey game, a move back to the old Coliseum seems likely. The Islanders, and their fans, have put up with bad ice and some crazy-bad sightlines during their stay. A return to Long Island would be a welcome change until their new home in Belmont Park is ready.
