Islander Hate, Part I

With the ridiculously huge Rangers/Islanders game on Long Island Saturday night, I'm going to post a piece of Islanders hate the next few days leading up to puck drop…

…for you youngsters on the blog, Rangers/Islanders hasn't exactly lit the world on fire this last decade, so I don't blame you for thinking that the Flyers or Devils are the Blueshirts' biggest rival. But Saturday night, you'll get a taste of what it was like back in the 80s & 90s. For my money, the once great rivalry is just as good if not better than Bruins/Canadiens or Flames/Oilers.

And nothing exemplifies the hatred between these two franchise at its peak than this video from 1985…

…i totally remember watching this game with my dad and a bunch of family at my uncle's house. Everyone was going nuts. Doesn't get better than that.

…and what's up with the much more accomplished fighter Sutter going after Sandstrom? Gutless.
