Scenes From the Road

Nassau Coliseum at Sunset


Outside Nassau Coliseum


Inside the Coliseum before the pre-skate


The Stanley Cup banners for the Islanders

Hall of Fame banners


Pre-skate at the Islanders game


The snowpocalypse that hit New York City. View is from the 28th floor of the team hotel.


Snowy Times Square. About two blocks from the hotel.


Inside Madison Square Garden before the pre-skate


The scoreboard and the iconic roof at MSG


The main entrance to "The Rock"- the Prudential Center in Newark


Inside The Rock just prior to the start of the game


The Devils Stanley Cup banners. I can't wait to see those hanging in the Sommet Center


Looking up at the press box inside The Rock


The crowd inside The Rock ten minutes into the contest. I guess we can call the Devils a "failed experiment" and the League should consider moving the franchise?


The Igloo. Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh


Consol Energy Center, the Penguins new home, is being built directly across the street from the Igloo


We met Kevin Klein's parents, on the left, and god-parents, on the right, prior to the game


Inside the Igloo prior to the start of the game


Pre-skate at the start of the Penguins game


The scoreboard tells the story. Preds get a big win in the Igloo


One of the highlights of the trip was meeting some great Long Island folks and fellow Twitterers. From the left: Katrina Doell, The View From 111, Michael Schuerline (Islesblogger), and Doug Davison.
