Isles-Bruins on Versus

As Chris Botta noted earlier, Monday's Isles- Bruins game on Versus will feature Dave Strader on play-by-play with Mike Milbury as his analyst.

Milbury of course is a former Bruin who coached both teams and "managed" the Isles as well.

He also was the central figure in starting a brawl between the teams at the end of the first period of Game 2 in Boston in the 1980 playoffs.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
