Happy Isle-versary

On this date:

1984: Don Maloney ties it in the final half-minute, but all it does is prolong the Rangers' agony as Ken Morrow scores 8:56 into overtime to give the Isles a series-clinching victory. It's their seventeenth consecutive playoff series triumph. This game is unquestionably on my short list of greatest games I ever saw.

2004: Rick DiPietro records his only career playoff win (so far!) and it's a shutout as the Isles blank Tampa 3-0. Jason Blake scores twice in the 133rd (and most recent) victory in Islander playoff history.
