As we mentioned yesterday, Nassau Coliseum is in NHL 21, but we also noticed a strange scoreboard. Unfortunately we could only catch a small portion of it from the video we received. Today we have footage of the entire scoreboard, and it has left us with more questions than answers. Where did this board come from? Is it real?
This scoreboard is nothing like the incredibly simple and small real-life scoreboard, and also bares little resemblance to any scoreboard I have seen in the NHL or AHL. It contains enough detail that I can't imagine EA just came up with a generic scoreboard without some specific inspiration.
Could it be a new scoreboard for Nassau Coliseum that most of us have yet to see? Doubtful, as it would make little sense to purchase a brand new, state-of-the-art scoreboard for a single season of NHL action. Also, their current board was just installed following the recent renovations.
Honestly, we have thought of several possibilities and none of them seem plausible than another. Never-the-less, it is great to be able to play in the Coliseum one last time.
What do you think of this board? What are your thoughts on the possibility that it might be real? Let us know in the comments below.
