Carolina Hurricanes 3 New York Islanders 2 in OT at Nassau Coliseum

Advertising on the internet worked as the Islanders stated there were no Ticketmaster fees on tickets purchased by March 9.  I took advantage of that offer and bought tickets for today's afternoon game at Nassau Coliseum.  When I worked in Newark, I bought tickets for the Devils while Karen and Lee would join me after work.  Since I retired we only have gone to Islanders' games at Barclays Center since Ranger tickets at Madison Square Garden are so expensive. This season the Islanders split their home games between Barclays Center and the Nassau Coliseum.  Today was the first time in several years that I attended a hockey game at the Coliseum.

It was a game dominated by the defense as it was tied at 2-2 at the end of regulation play.   Vincent Trocheck scored a power-play goal at 1:36 of overtime to give the Hurricanes a 3-2 victory that tightens the race for a wild card slot in the playoffs.
