Fans poured into the Nassau Coliseum Thursday night to see the Islanders take on the Penguins in Game 3 of their playoff series.
While the outcome wasn't what the team or fans wanted, the atmosphere at the 'Old Barn' was as loud as if it was full capacity. The Isles lost to the Penguins 5-4.
The crowd was pumped even though attending the game was unlike any experience in the Coliseum's history.
It was a tale of two sections -- vaccinated and unvaccinated.
Anyone who had proof of vaccination was able to sit just 3 feet apart from other fans. The unvaccinated fans had to sit at least 6 feet apart.
Fans were also able to get food and drink from the concession stands for the first time since the Coliseum reopened.
The arena was allowed to have 33% capacity, which is about 6,000 fans.
The Penguins have a 2-1 series lead heading into Game 4 at the Coliseum on Saturday at 3 p.m.
