Islanders bring their team pride to Belmont


Hundreds of cars lined Hempstead Turnpike leading in to Belmont Park last Saturday, as New York Islanders fans from throughout Long Island waited on line for their chance to get a team rally towel and car flag.

Islanders officials handed out the limited supply of swag to mark the beginning of hockey season, which officially began on Jan. 13.

The team is expected to move into the arena at Belmont Park when it is completed at the end of the year.
