Special guest for "Let's Play Hockey" at Isles-Wild game

Much like the Cubs have a guest lead the crowd in singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", the Wild have a special guest yell "Let's Play Hockey"  before each game.

For the Friday Islander-Wild game, the guest will be Josh Sacco.  (No, not Joe Sacco -- he's the Av's coach)  5-year old Josh Sacco has become a bit of a celebrity for his interpretation of Kurt Russell's re-enactment of Herb Brooks' speech before the US-Russia game.  You can see Sacco's speech here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CdJTfGiRCI

1980 was a pretty good year for the USA ... and for the Islanders too!
