New York Islanders fans set up for Game 3 of the group’s Stanley Cup playoffs matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night with a chilling interpretation of the national anthem.
The fans’ interpretation came over seven days after fans and singer Nicole Raviv became a viral during the team’s playoff matchup against the Boston Bruins. On Thursday, observers at the Nassau Coliseum did it again and gave another wonderful performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The Islanders likewise got some help from New York Jets players who were in the house to watch the game.
Jets offensive lineman Dan Feeney and freshman quarterback Zach Wilson were among those in participation. Feeney was seen at one point chugging a beer to get the fans rolling.
In any case, New York would miss the mark on the ice.
Brayden Point gave Tampa Bay the go on objective in the subsequent period, and goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevskiy halted 27 Islanders shots. Tampa Bay dominated the match 2-1.
“They had some control late, something to look at,” Point said after the game. “We still had guys sacrificing, blocking shots and all that good stuff. We’ll take the win for sure.”
Cal Clutterbuck scored the solitary goal for the Islanders.
“We have to get more pucks, we have to get inside,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “We had some chances. Vasilevskiy made a couple of key saves. They didn’t have a lot tonight, I thought we were pretty good defensively as well.”
Game 4 is set for Saturday night.
