Isles- Rangers set for MSG -- December 22

Of course it's a charity alumni game:

<<Two hockey rivalries are renewed, as the FDNY and New York Rangers alumni team up to face their rivals from the NYPD and the New York Islanders alumni
This unique event hits the ice at The World's Most Famous Arena in "Rivals for Relief," a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims with portions of the proceeds going to the Red Cross and the Stan Lee Foundation.
Alumni currently scheduled to appear:*
NY Rangers
1. Steve Vickers
2. Rod Gilbert
3. Ron Duguay
4.Chris Kostopoulos
5. Brian Mullen
6. Pete Stemkowski
7. Ed Hospodar
8. Peter Ferraro
9. Chris Ferraro
NY Islanders
1. Gordie Lane
2. Pat Flatley
3. Mick Vukota
4. Benny Hougue
5. Eric Cairns
6. Randy Wood

The Islanders may have youth on their side --Gilbert is now 71 and Stemkowski 69.

If they can find another Ferraro (Ray) -- maybe he could convince Mullen to give him credit for the OT goal in 1993 vs the Caps.  (Ferraro is already credited with the other two OT goals in that series)

Tickets available through Ticketmaster.

It's apparently a lot cheaper to see old hockey players than old musicians...

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
