How is it a sucker punch when Witt skate up to him and the two players were facing each other? There's plenty of videos with Brashear sucker punching people. I don't this is one of them though.

Props to the NYR goalie (Giacomin?) for skating by to say "Hey, cut that out", or something to that effect. An emblematic moment from NYR history.
You're right, I don't think that video is right for this thread. It's not an Islander clip at all. It was funny to watch the hair pulling though

On the other hand, I think both of these clips are cheap shots. Neither of which are among my favorite Islander videos and both are terrible for the game of hockey.

Probably the grossest example of a cheap shot or sucker punch is the Bertuzzi on Moore shot, which I'll leave off, because neither were wearing an Islander's Jersey.
