Nassau County dome lit orange and blue for Isles’ 1st game
The Nassau County dome was lit orange and blue Thursday in honor of the Islander’s first game of the season.
The team kicked off their 13-game road trip in North Carolina.
It'll be the second-longest road trip in NHL history until they're back in Nassau at their new home.
New York Islanders Hockey Club says the ice was installed at the UBS Arena and is being painted.
The group says 10,000 gallons of water were used to make one inch of ice over the 16,300 square feet of arena surface.
