New York Islanders - Your #Isles40th favorite moments

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders
May 24, 1980. One of the best days of my life. Scoring tickets to Game 6 at the last minute. Watching Nystrom Score the OT goal. Parking lot craziness. Then heading down Hempstead Tnpk to the Calderone Concert Hall to see one of my favorite Prog Rock bands Gentle Giant in my Trottier Jersey. For the encore the Derek the lead singer came out in an Isles Jersey and played their song Number 1,  from their Album Civilian. Place went nuts! Show was broadcast on WLIR and is avail on the interwebs.
