Some NBA and NHL Notes

Nassau Coliseum

Nassau Coliseum

Last night the Eastern Conference 8 seed, the Brooklyn Nets squared their first round NBA playoff series with the East one seed Atlanta Hawks by posting a home overtime win.

Meanwhile though the East “3” seed Chicago Bulls still lead the series 3 games to 2, the “6” seed Milwaukee Bucks stayed alive in that series with a surprising win in Chicago.

Coincidentally the Nets, who long since moved their home games from the venerable Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, got even in their series, playing simultaneously to a Washington Capitals NHL first round game seven victory vs the New York Islanders.

That Capitals/Islanders result not only ended the current Islanders season, but assured no more games at the Nassau Coliseum.

That venue was the scene for three New York Islanders’ Stanley Cup clinching victories. Additionally, the Nets clinched two ABA (that league disbanded after the 1976 season) titles there.
