30 Games In 30 Nights

Game 1: New York Islanders (March 13)

March 13, 2015

First of 30 games, and it was a very entertaining game. ¬†Ottawa edged the home team Islanders by a score of 2-1, and Senators goalie (nicknamed the “Hamburger”) stole the show.

Before the game, I went over to chat with some Isles fans and asked if they wanted to take my poll.  I asked them ten hockey trivia questions, and I will be comparing their answers to randomly chosen fans in all other cities.  These fans did pretty good, getting the answers right to 7 out of my 10 questions.

It was great to see the retired jerseys of the players who battled my home-town Oilers during the 80’s, probably the two last dynasty teams we will ever see. ¬†And after this season, we will never see the Islanders in the Nassau Coliseum, as they move to Brooklyn for next season. ¬†What a great old rink with great history, and with great sight-lines for watching the game! ¬†Love the “Yes, yes, yes” chant after the Islanders score a goal!

Thanks to Rich from the Islanders radio network for showing me around the rink, and providing some team/rink history, and thanks for helping promote Make-A-Wish during your broadcast! ¬† For all folks reading, don’t forget to donate! ¬†(And for those who have generously donated so far, many thanks!)
