Dave Scatchard had gotten everyone in a spirited mood when he scored off his skate 3:54 into the second period. But equally fortunate goals into empty nets by Handzus and Mark Recchi negated that lucky Islanders goal and let the air out of the 13,888-strong crowd, of which "hundreds" were donned in red jumpers and fake white hair.
A lot of that fake fur was pulled out of place, though.
During the first intermission, the promoters thought it was a good idea to have all those free Santas to parade onto the ice. So down they came in semi-orderly fashion, until two of the Santas stripped off their suit tops to reveal that most hated of icons in this Islanders’ den if iniquities -- Rangers jerseys.
Boos soon replaced the caroling in the Coliseum air, and a few Santas took it upon themselves to right these two unsainted imposters’ wrongs. So the guys wearing those Rangers jerseys were jumped, bringing yellow-jacketed security bees buzzing onto the ice while the ArenaVision showed a little kid dressed as Santa joining mom, dad and friends in trying to punch the Rangers Clauses’ beards off.
"Merry Christmas," said Jeremy Roenick.
