Islanders beat Devils wearing new Barclays Center black uniforms (PHOTO)

The Brooklynization of the New York Islanders continued Tuesday night after the team debuted its new alternate uniform featuring a black jersey with the white Islander NY logo on the chest against the New Jersey Devils.

As the Barclays Center brass continues its quest to integrate the former Long Islanders into their new surroundings (Translation: Make them more edgy and Brooklyny), the Islanders did something the Nets — Barclays' other regular tenant whose trendy black uniform they want the Isles' jersey to emulate — aren't doing. Namely win.

And the Islanders did it without the presence of franchise player John Tavares, who was unable to model the new uni after missed his third straight game with what was finally defined Tuesday morning as “flu-like symptoms.”

The Isles managed the victory without their captain, and they got it thanks to their tireless fourth line as Casey Cizikas scored the winner with 2:12 left in a 2-1 victory over their Hudson River rivals.

Black is the new black. Yawn.
