Fallon, Macchio, Jets, Bachelor couple watch Islanders-Lightning Game 3


There were more than a few famous faces in the crowd at Nassau Coliseum on Thursday.

Actor Ralph Macchio and comedian Jimmy Fallon took in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Semifinal between the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Macchio, who reprised his role as Daniel LaRusso in the wildly successful series “Cobra Kai,” is a lifelong Islanders fan and native of Long Island.

Fallon, host of “The Tonight Show” is more known for attending New York Rangers games, but it seems he made an exception for the Islanders in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He also recently roasted some NHL player pictures on his show.

A group of New York Jets were also in the house for the game. Many of the same faces attended Stanley Cup Second Round games at the Coliseum.

And what would a playoff atmosphere be without the latest couple from “The Bachelor,” Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell?

James, a native of Raleigh, N.C., rang the siren before Game 5 of the Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup Second Round series against the Lightning.

The Hurricanes seemed a little heartbroken on Twitter.

But as the saying goes, all is fair in love and playoff hockey.
