New York Islanders Will Move to Brooklyn

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

(WNYC newsroom, New York, NY) The New York Islanders are moving to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, sources said.

The Long Island-based team will make an announcement this afternoon with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Islanders owner Charles Wang and Bruce Ratner, the developer of the Barclays Center.

The newly opened 18,000-seat arena already hosts the Brooklyn Nets team, currently playing pre-season games.

Last year, voters in Nassau County defeated a plan that would have allowed the county to use $400 million to redevelop the 40-year-old crumbling stadium.

Supporters of the redevelopment said the county stood to lose $243 million a year and more than 2,000 jobs if the Islanders leave and the Nassau Coliseum closes.

The team's lease at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., expires in 2015.

What Kind of Friendship Is This? Devils, Rangers Fans Sit (Together) Through Hockey Playoffs

Thursday, May 24, 2012

There's a lonely, whistled melody that originates somewhere around section 133 in the Prudential Center in Newark. The crowd knows it well and when it ends, the house full of Devils fans chants in unison, "Rangers suck!” There is little love between these two teams and their armies of fans, separated by the moat of the Hudson River.  And now, they’re locked in a grinding battle to reach the Stanley Cup Finals.
