Islanders head to Brooklyn -for one game

Newsday

Et voila, exactly as we predicted: the Islanders are coming to Brooklyn — for three hours.

The Islanders announced Tuesday they will play a preaseason game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against the Devils on Oct. 2, marking the first NHL game ever to be played in Brooklyn.

Jay-Z will open the new arena with a concert on Sept. 28 followed by the Islanders-Devils preseason game four days later.
