      Isles Memories Kind; Not Flyers
      By Alan Hahn

      FLYERS 5 ISLANDERS 1

      The Stanley Cup was in the building.

      People named Nystrom, Gillies, Tonelli, Goring,
      Henning, Merrick and Resch were on the ice. Their
      opponents were Philadelphia Flyers, familiar names
      such as Reggie Leach, Ed Hospodar, Battleship Bob
      Kelly and Brian Propp.

      A sellout crowd was on hand at Nassau Coliseum last
      night for a legends game between the Islanders and
      Flyers alumni celebrating the 20th anniversary of the
      Islanders' first Stanley Cup championship-which they
      won over the Flyers in six games in 1980.

      It was an intoxicating trip down memory lane, but the
      nightcap of the doubleheader was an all too sobering
      experience.
