Islanders go back to old goal horn

Crisis avoided. Following a overwhelming negative response to the Barclays Center’s new goal horn, the Islanders changed their minds. They’re going back to the old goal horn from the Nassau Coliseum. Eric Hornick just tweeted the good news.

At least some common sense prevailed. It would’ve been sad if they had kept the new goal horn which sounded forced by the whole Brooklyn mantra. The Islanders are playing their home games there. But it doesn’t mean they should turn their back completely on tradition. Hopefully, they’ll also ditch those ugly black third jerseys.
