Long Island is saying a season-long goodbye to the New York Islanders as they approach a move to Brooklyn. Stephen Brunt looks at how the Islanders have affected their community, and how Nassau Coliseum has hosted some of its most famous moments.

Nassau Coliseum is officially closed for business after the Islanders were booted from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Monday. Here’s one last look at Long Island’s beloved hockey home. (Photos courtesy of Bruce Bennett/Getty.)
