Update: We've now sold over 1,450 shirts and raised over $20,000! Un-beLIevable!
Since October, I have been commemorating the last season of Islander hockey at the Coliseum with my daily #ItHappenedattheColiseum feature. Recently, I was approached by @Islesblog to participate in a project for charity based on the "It Happened" theme.
The result is these gorgeous T-shirts and hoodies:
and now they can be yours.
Please visit http://teespring.com/IslesBlogIHATC to order. Check out http://nyislesblog.com/articles/it-happened-at-the-coliseum-shirts-now-available for more on the campaign.
All proceeds benefit one of my favorite charities: Make-A-Wish® Metro New York.

Jekyll & Hyde-landers
Isles have scored only SEVEN first period goals -- tied with Carolina and Minnesota for fewest in NHL.
Isles have scored 26 second period goals -- most in NHL; Chicago, Ottawa and Montreal are tied for 2nd with 21.
Isles have scored 19 third period goals -- seventh in NHL
Only Tampa (46) has scored more 2nd/3rd period goals (combined) than Isles.
Isles have allowed 15 first period goals and 17 second period goals (both are middle of the pack, T-10 and T-11 highest respectively) but have allowed NHL-high 27 goals in third period (two more than Winnipeg).
