NEW YORK -- The result of the New York Islanders preseason game at the Barclays Center on Saturday night was secondary to the initial impression the arena left on the team and its fans. China Jerseys Authentic . "It was great," New York coach Jack Capuano said after the Islanders lost 3-0 to the New Jersey Devils in the first NHL game played in the Barclays Center. Cory Schneider made 26 saves, Jacob Josefson scored the first NHL goal in Barclays Center history at 10:14 of the first period, and Patrik Elias and Steve Bernier added goals for New Jersey. Evgeni Nabokov made 22 saves for New York. The first NHL game played in Brooklyn drew a crowd of 14,689. Barclays Center holds 15,813 for hockey, although Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark envisions adding "100-300" seats as part of a "West End Club." Barclays seats 17,732 for college basketball and the NBAs Brooklyn Nets, and holds 19,000 for concerts. "When you sell over 13,000 for a preseason game, were thrilled," Yormark said. "We know we can sell hockey in Brooklyn. Twenty-six per cent of (the) ticket buyers are from Brooklyn." The Islanders will officially move into $1 billion arena before the 2015-16 season. Saturday nights exhibition game was a trial run to introduce the year-old building to fans, and Yormark said the response he received was overwhelmingly positive. "I walked every area of the building," he said. "I was stopped (by fans who said), Brett, we love the building. Brett, we love the building." Yormarks words were echoed by Islanders fans used to the 41-year-old Nassau Coliseum. "Great, beautiful building," said Frank Smarra, a self-proclaimed lifelong Islanders fan from Astoria, Queens. "(It is) clean, roomy. (It) generates a lot of excitement. "(Its) a whole new slate for the organization. I think things are finally falling into place." Smarra said the "45-minute" subway ride from Queens to Brooklyn was easy compared to driving and paying for parking at Nassau Coliseum. One of the Barclays selling points is its convenience, as 11 New York City bus and subway lines stop there, as does the Long Island Rail Road. When he spoke with reporters following the Islanders practice session at Barclays on Sept. 12, team owner Charles Wang reiterated that his team has a lease at the Nassau Coliseum for the next two seasons, but did not reject the notion of his team playing regular-season games in Brooklyn next year. While acknowledging he had to have discussions with team and building officials, Yormark did not dismiss the idea of Barclays playing host to regular-season games next season. "I have to sit with Charles (and) Bruce Ratner after (the game) tonight," Yormark said. "(But the) building is ready to be a host NHL venue." New York defenceman Travis Hamonic agreed. "But this obviously is going to be our home for a long time. So in my opinion the more games we play here (will be) awesome," Hamonic said. "Were looking forward to it. Its a great building, an unreal atmosphere and a great spot. So were going to be here for years to come." NFL Jerseys China . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. http://www.cheapnfljerseysshipping.us.com/ .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open.Former Wales No 8 Scott Quinnell was confident that Wales would beat England in the 2015 World Cup, but says Saturdays Six Nations clash will be a much closer affair. Wales are being touted as Englands first real test under new coach Eddie Jones as Warren Gatlands men return to Twickenham where they beat England 28-25 last September.That loss ultimately cost England a place in the quarter-finals as they fell to Australia the following week and much is being made of England finally getting their revenge. England Rugby star Jack Nowell, with the help of Mike Brown & Maro Itoje, give us a lesson in beating defenders. Quinnell agrees that England are in a far better place than they were in the World Cup, but he believes Wales are too.Psychologically and physically, England are starting to play the type of rugby they want to play and are renowned for, said Quinnell on the Sky Sports Rugby Union podcast.I know England say they are in a much better place than they were in during the World Cup, but then so are Wales. Rob Evans on the charge for Wales Wales have some key players back - like Jonathan Davies and Rhys Webb - and other players like Liam Williams are more established. Alex Cuthbert is coming into some form - he got dropped but has worked really hard and is coming back towards the Alex Cuthbert we knew from a couple of years ago.Up front, Rob Evans has come in and done a brilliant job. I thought he was a bit of a gamble to start with, but he has proved me wrong and has gone out there and owned that No 1 jersey. Quinnell hopes Tuilagi does not get to run too much against Wales One of Englands problem areas in the World Cup was centre, but Quinnell is excited about the return of Manu Tuilagi, who has been named on the bench. Cheap NFL Jerseys. .Tuilagi is one of those guys that you will pay good money to go and watch, said Quinnell. I am lucky to travel all over Europe and commentate on rugby, but I get excited about seeing him with the ball and in full flow. Lets hope he does not get too much of the ball on Saturday. Ex-England skipper Nick Easter looks ahead to this weekends big Six Nations clash as Wales travel to Twickenham When Tuilagi does come in, it will make a physical game even tougher as he is set to collide with Jamie Roberts.I think Jamie Roberts is in the form of his life at the moment. He has really stood up and he puts pressure on the opposition to really perform, added the former British and Irish Lions No 8.Dont be surprised every now and again if Alex Cuthbert and George North just drop off his shoulder. Hopefully that will create a little bit of space out wide as well. Sky Sports Rugby Union Podcast - 9th March I cannot wait for this game. It is one of the great weeks in world rugby when the old enemy comes around. It does not get much tougher than going to Twickenham. But I was speaking with someone who was with the players the other night and boy, are they up for it.I knew Wales were going to beat England in the World Cup - I said it for months and months - but this one is too close to call. It is going to be a very physical game. If you are sat in Twickenham on Saturday, put your seat belt on because it is going to be a close game.
