The Islanders are in position to advance to the semifinal round of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive season, and they have the chance to do it on home ice.
Islanders' fans were fired up after Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy made comments about how the refs were letting the Isles get away with stuff.
One fan even brought a band to cheer on the team. Matt Buck had a whole horn section playing when "The Saints Go Marching In."
"The energy adds to the emotion of the game and the overall play, it'll be a fun one tonight," says Brock Nelson.
Isles coach Barry Trotz said they'll need the fans' help, because it's always tough to beat a desperate team.
"Don't try to put on a show tonight, the only thing that matters is getting the results, so you don't have to put on a show at home," says Trotz. "You just have to put the winning formula and get it right and be consistent at it."
The game could be the final one in Nassau Coliseum history, should the Bruins win the next two games.
At this point, the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning have advanced to the semifinal round, while the Vegas Golden Knights hold a 3-2 advantage over the Colorado Avalanche in their series.
