The New York Islanders are a professional ice hockey team based in Elmont, New York. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a member of the Metropolitan Division in the Eastern Conference. The Islanders have won four Stanley Cup titles (1980–83) and their fanbase resides primarily on Long Island. The team was founded in 1972 and was named after the team's location on Long Island. The Islanders play their home games at UBS Arena. Al Arbour was hired as head coach prior to the 1973–74 season, and he would go on to accumulate a franchise-record 740 wins over the course of 20 full or partial seasons with the Islanders. The Islanders play a committed style of hockey that is often described as boring or overly defensive, but they have found success by playing a physical style within the rules.
