And true, it was shattering to NYI fans at the time.
That pain lasted for 12 months. And then a dynasty began.
Funny how that's not mentioned.
Selective memory, one supposes.
Great footage, though. Thanks.
I hear ya Torts why let something like 4 Cups get in the way of anything. Let him enjoy it. Be nice to see if he can actually talk about a game objectively once the season starts or if he's gonna be one of these one way Ranger fans that have an excuse for every loss we know there's plenty of them around.
The sight of Denis Potvin kneeling against the boards, crushed by defeat, is one of the best images to come out of that series.
I was in 8th grade at the time, and remember sitting on my neighbors couch watching this and thinking 'Man, I can't wait to go to school tomm". great time as a kid to stick it to my Isles friends. The joy was short though...
I spent ALL four years of H.S watching the Islanders stick it back to me x4...
