There’s Nothing Like Front Row Seats at the Nassau Coliseum

One of the perks about being an Islanders fan is that front row seats are only 45 dollars. In comparison, last row tickets of a Rangers’ game are 99 dollars. So if you ever want to save some money, drive out to Long Island. In the Isles’ second game of the season, they came out strong in the first period and scored two goals. Man it feels good having Mark Streit back on the ice. His assist on the second goal was unbelievable. Fending off a defender, he shot a perfect pass in front of the net for Frans Nielsen to tap in the net. Best Islanders goal I’ve seen in a while. Even though the Isles didn’t look great in the last two periods, Al Montoya looked fantastic with 20 saves. Coming into the season, I thought Nabokov would be the starter (where the hell is he?), but it looks like Al has been doing a fine job so far even in the opening game’s loss to the Panthers. This is great for the Islanders to get their first win of the season, but I think I’ve learned my lesson last year when I got excited about them being on top of the Eastern Conference after five games. The Islanders started off last season 4-1-1, but then didn’t win another game until late November. So let’s hope that doesn’t happen again. Isles take on the Lightning at home on Thursday night.
