Info for getting to Sunday\'s game
Important traffic info for Sunday\'s Game 3 between the Islanders and Penguins

Game 3 of the New York Islanders Conference Quartfinal series against the Pittsburgh Penguins is scheduled for 12 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. With a sellout crowd, heightened security and road closures due to the RxR Long Island Marathon, please allow additional time for travel to Nassau Coliseum.

Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. for the noon puck drop.

All roadways surrounding the Coliseum will be open from 10 a.m. on. If you are planning to come prior to 10 a.m., please make note of the following:

The only road closure adjacent to the Nassau Coliseum will be Charles Lindbergh Boulevard, which will reopen at 9:30 a.m. For your convenience, we have listed all of the Long Island Marathon closures to compare with your route to the game.
