UNIONDALE - “The Hockey Maven” Stan Fischler counts Nassau Coliseum among his favorite arenas in the NHL.

Fischler says the Coliseum has the best sightlines and press box in the league.

“I love it,” he says. “Both as a hockey fan and a journalist.”

Fischler recalls taking wins for granted back during the team’s heyday, but says he got “super goose pimples” hearing the volume of the fans come back during the 2013 Penguins-Islanders series.

“The decibel count was just something that I’ll never forget,” he says. “I’ll never forget the feel of it …  let alone the fact that it made me a little deaf.”
