Empire State Building

New York Islanders orange and blue will be emblazoned atop the Empire State Building on Friday night in honor of the Islanders returning to play on Saturday.

It’s not the first time the Empire State Building’s tower lights have been lit up in orange and blue. It has been done in the past to celebrate the Islanders’ move to Brooklyn and to honor past postseason runs by the team.

The Islanders kick off their best-of-five qualifying round series with the Florida Panthers on Saturday at 4 pm. It will be the second time in either franchise’s history that they’ll play one another in the postseason.

The Islanders defeated the Panthers in six games in the first round of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It was the Islanders first series victory in 23 years.
