Brooklyn Bows To No Man
The question on everyone’s mind heading into Game 3 was roughly along the lines of: “What is the Barclays Center going to be like in the playoffs?”
There were no shortages of stories throughout the regular season where the attendance “issues” in Brooklyn came up, and it was a legitimate question on Sunday morning to wonder just what was going to happen.
Well, to say that Islanders fans showed up would be an understatement; nearly every source present for the game seemed to have some sort of comment about how loud the building got.
When Ryan Pulock opened the scoring for the Islanders in the second period, you could practically feel the building shake through the television. Islanders fans did their best to give the Barclays a genuine home-ice advantage, and while it still isn’t the Coliseum, something tells me Brooklyn will do just fine.
