Islanders' Martin on alternate jerseys: 'We look meaner'

BY foxsports • November 4, 2015

The New York Islanders heard plenty of criticism when they initially unveiled their new alternate third jerseys, but at least one member of the club enjoys the black-and-white ensemble.

"I like 'em. We look meaner," fourth-line forward Matt Martin told Arthur Staple of Newsday.

Martin played a role in the eventual winning goal on Tuesday, as he tipped defenseman Brian Strait's shot before Casey Cizikas jammed home the rebound with 2:12 remaining in the third period in the Islanders' 2-1 triumph over the Metropolitan Division-rival New Jersey Devils.

New York will wear the Brooklyn-themed alternate uniforms on 11 more occasions at home this season.

The black sweater with a white "NY" logo on the chest has become fashionable by celebrities - including actress Chloe Grace Moretz and model Christie Brinkley, just to name two.
