The Barn was finally rocking again, and over 1,000 Northwell Health workers had first dibs.
The Isles' matchup Thursday night vs. the New Jersey Devils was the first home game for the team with fans in attendance this season. They came away the win, the team's seventh in a row, 5-3.
It was the first time in 369 days that the Coliseum's doors were open to fans.
And though Thursday's night's game look different than a typical, pre-pandemic night in Uniondale, it sounded pretty similar.
Front-line workers in the seats of the arena were honored by the team throughout the game, signs in hand and with jerseys on their backs.
COVID safety rules were in place to keep the workers safe. The Coliseum concourse had different flow of traffic and fans were spread out, among other protocols.
Season ticketholders will be next into the building when they get to be part of the 10% capacity crowd March 18.
