NHL Hockey experience
Great evening with excellent seats and great atmosphere. Expensive refreshments.
the entrance policy has gotten ridiculous Ladies be prepared to have your hand bag searched in every nook and crane very time consuming one should tell when a person enters if there is possible issues The process is worse than Yankee Stadium Gentleman make sure you take all metal objects from your pockets When you go to your seats after passing the entrance where there are ticket takers you are subjected to showing your ticket once again to the usher who checks to make sure you sit in your assigned seat even if you are a season ticket holder or have been to the arena previously and the usher does not escort you to your seat As far as he game goes never ever sit in an obstructed seat even if the price is right Barclay Center was not built for hockey as there are many poor viewing seats
Great Ice Hockey Experience
First time I’ve seen a game and I loved it! Fast paced with lots of rough and tumble.
Brooklyn is a terrible arena.
Brooklyn was not made for hockey . The seats to far from the ice and it is not centered, there are obstructed seats, upper bowl very steep,
Really overpriced to say the least! Small bag of popcorn and a beer $24! The stadium wasn’t even half full which was understandable due to the ticket price.
Great first nhl game
Defo going back again was great made me wanna get a season ticket
Even though the Islander's lost my friend and I had a great time
Barclay Center is a great venue - Isle fans were great - would definitely make a return trip.
While some of the big name stars were there some were not. Still missing the big arena feel.
Isles v Rangers 09/22/2018
What a fun and exciting game. Two cross-town rivals playing at an AHL venue in my home state. It was close by and convenient (I’m an Isles fan). All of the staff that I interacted with were very friendly. The seats were great and the atmosphere was energetic.
New York Islanders at Barclays Center and Nassau Coliseum
The New York Islanders called Nassau Coliseum home for four decades, and will return in 2018-19 as they split their home schedule between Barclays Center and NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. New leadership is ready to lead the Islanders back to the Coliseum with three-time Stanley Cup® Champion Lou Lamoriello in charge as President of Hockey Operations and new head coach Barry Trotz taking over behind the bench fresh off a Stanley Cup® Championship of his own with the Washington Capitals. At the Coliseum, the Islanders will be playing in a completely refurbished arena following a $180 million facelift.
New York Islanders 2018-19 Season
Rookie Mathew Barzal was a sensation in 2017-18, scoring 85 points at age 20 to become the fifth Islander to claim the Calder Trophy as the league's rookie of the year, following in the footsteps of three Hall of Famers. The young center has high-scoring company in Josh Bailey and Anders Lee, both coming off career highs in goals, assists and points. Young defensemen Ryan Pulock and Adam Pelech established themselves during their first full seasons in 2017-18 to firm up the blueliners behind veterans Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk.
Veteran forward Matt Martin, a former Islanders fan favorite, returns to the team, as well as free agent forward additions Leo Komarov, Tom Kuhnhackl and Valtteri Filppula, plus netminder Robin Lehner, who will join Thomas Greiss in handling goaltending duties.
The home schedule begins Saturday, Oct. 6 against the Nashville Predators at Barclays Center. The Islanders return to Nassau Coliseum for the first time to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, Dec. 1.
New York Islanders History
One of only two NHL franchises to win as many as four straight Stanley Cup® Championships, the New York Islanders forged one of sports' great dynasties with a championship run that began less than a decade after the franchise's inception. The Islanders took the ice for the first time in 1972, and had a winning record and their first Playoff appearance in their third season, 1974-75.
After reaching the NHL semifinals four times in five years, the Islanders broke through to their first Stanley Cup® Finals appearance in 1980 and took home the Cup on Bob Nystrom's legendary overtime goal in Game 6 against the Philadelphia Flyers. They went on to win four straight titles, twice winning the Cup by a sweep. Their NHL-record streak of 19 straight Playoff series victories ended in the 1984 finals, their fifth straight Stanley Cup® Championship appearance.
GM Bill Torrey's brilliant drafting during the 1970s stocked the Islanders roster with some of the game's greatest players. Defenseman Denis Potvin, right wing Mike Bossy, center Bryan Trottier, goaltender Billy Smith and left wing Clark Gillies powered the dynasty and went on to the Hall of Fame.
Coach Al Arbour joined Torrey and his five players in the Hall of Fame after finishing his career fourth all-time in wins. Arbour took over the team in its second season, 1973-74, and his 720 wins with the Islanders are the most for any coach with a single NHL franchise. Pat LaFontaine, who made his NHL debut during the 1983-84 season, is the eighth Islander enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
