On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the New York Islanders will be playing in their first game at the Nassau Coliseum since March 7, 2020, in what will be the Islanders home opener of the 2021 season against the Boston Bruins.
Since it is a holiday, the Islanders and Bruins will be facing off at the unconventional time of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. There will be no fans in attendance at tonight’s contest. This will be the Islanders’ last season at the Coliseum before they move into their new state-of-the-art home, UBS Arena.
