Prelude To The Blueshirts Win

What helped our boys in Blue yesterday was a fight-filled night between the Penguins and The Islanders on Friday night.  This is mandatory viewing; with Pittsburgh physically taking advantage of The Islanders this season and with Rick DiPietro getting knocked out by Pittsburgh's Brent Johnson only weeks ago, as the laughing stock of the league - the Isles were no longer willing to watch their guys take any crap from the Penguins. 

Friday's game, won 9-3 by the Islanders, featured 346 penalty minutes, 15 fighting majors and 11 game misconducts. The Islanders were fined $100,000 by the league, and two of their players - if that's what you call Trevor Gillies and Matt Martin - were suspended for 10 and four games, respectively. Pens' Eric Godard was suspended the mandatory 10 games for leaving the bench to join the fight.

The videos below outline a brawl of a game.  So for once in my hockey lifetime, I'd like to tip my DARK hat and thank The Island for a dirty game well done.



PERIOD THREE (yes...there are still more fights)

So who feels bad for Talbott?   Ha ha ah aha ha .....
