UNIONDALE - Longtime Islanders fan Kristin Mango is the leader of the Isles Girl fan club and tailgate parties.

“This team leaving feels like a family member is moving away,” she told News 12 Long Island.

She is just one of many preparing her goodbye for the Coliseum. She says the Islanders have made the place home.

“When I think of Nassau Coliseum, I think of excitement, I think of the fans,” she says. “You can’t really put into words. Unless you’re there, you really don’t know how amazing it is.”

“The Islanders are Long Island,” she adds.
