Takeover of the Nassau Coliseum April 2

Hello. As you could have probably guessed, my favorite team is the Rangers. However, I was born into a surely unique situation, where one parent is a Rangers fan, another a Habs fan. Due to my location, I chose the Rangers, but even through the hatred between the two, I still like the Habs to keep my mother's side of the family happy. I know, I am a strange and ridiculous case, and no, I'm not interested in your opinions of how ****** a fan I am.

Anyways, I attended the Habs-Devils game in NJ on January 2nd and had a great time taking over their arena, even though we lost. Now, I shouldn't be doing this since I have no money and no job, but I'm trying to convince a group of friends to buy tickets with me to go to the game vs the Islanders in the Nassau Coliseum on April 2nd. If not, perhaps my mother since she loves the Habs. I am willing to make the 90 minute drive for the game.

Now, my question is, do you guys think it will be a majority Habs fans there? This will be my first time actively cheering for the Habs at a game, and wearing a jersey, especially if I go with my mother. Are there any tips you guys have for being a Habs fan at an "away" game like this? Are any of you going? Any additional comments?

Thanks guys, have a good day.

If you are wearing a Hab's jersey, be a class act.

I think it's guaranteed there'll be tons of Habs fans there.

This was on November 1st in our last game at Nassau this season.

LOL at the Isles fan near the end.

Things you need to be careful is, you'll be bashed to death on NHL board, you'll be considered as classless, no matter what you say from now on, you're wrong. All the players you think are good suck and if they are 20 or more they busted.

If you're ready to take those risk then enjoy the game, show some class down there and obviously, dont cheer and boo in a 3 seconds span you could confuse the Isles fan.
