The game is the second NHL contest held at the Brooklyn venue, which will be the Islanders new home after this season. Chris King and Butch Goring will be the broadcast team for the night. King will return to the television booth for the first time since a short stint last season filling in for Howie Rose.
It will be the first time fans will see how a hockey game will look on TV from the Barclays Center. The arena received mixed reviews from fans after the initial preseason contest there last season, in which the Islanders lost 3-0 to New Jersey. Some fans were unhappy with the view from different sections of the arena while others did not like that the scoreboard was off-center.
In addition, the Islanders announced that the September 24 preseason game against the Carolina Hurricanes and the October 3 contest versus the Boston Bruins in Bridgeport, Connecticut will be streamed on the team's website.
