Like Kate Smith, the call came for Bill to go to Nassau Coliseum
today and not allow our team to lose game # 50.
Mission Accomplished !!!!!!!
Islanders win 3-2. Ties last season's 24 win veteran team.
Thanks to list member Mark for the tickets and dragging me there in
a blizzard. They couldn't have played yesterday ?
Mark was the President Of the Bryan Trottier fan club
when he played here and several players attended Mark's booster club
meetings as well, including Mike Bossy.
Let the record show I finished the season undefeated and untied.
And the Islanders played without Chara, Jonsson or anything
resembling an nhl defense, with Bure hanging all day.
Luongo had a very good game. But did not have to dominate. Shots were
30-29 and the Isles missed the net, or did not shoot when the chances
Czerkawski gets only hat-trick of season. Last one was Ziggy Palffy
the final game of last season.
Attendance between 11,000-12,000 fans braved horrible weather
and were very supportive of the team.
Taped thank you video messages were played on the scoreboard as the
game wound down, the loudest cheers was for Goring.
After the game the team did a quick lap, than went to all corners
of the ice and threw shirts, and lots of other souvenirs at the
fans, as a stick giveaway took place on ice for selected fans.
One group mentioned as in attendance was the We hate Al'D Amato
fan club on the scoreboard.
No ownership announcements were made at the game.
