It Happened at the Coliseum … on NOVEMBER 24th

13 years ago tonight (2001) – Mark Parrish recorded the hat trick and added an assist as the Islanders extended their win streak to four straight games with a 5-3 victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.  The victory kept the Isles in first place in the Atlantic Division.
With the game tied 1-1 nearing the midway point of the second period, Parrish and Michael Peca scored 21 seconds apart to break the deadlock.  Parrish would then add a shorthanded goal – the only shorthanded tally of his 722 game NHL career.  He would later complete his second hat trick of the season.

Here's Parrish's shorthanded goal (with Howie Rose & Joe Micheletti on the call):

2:13 later, he completed the hat trick...

Also on this date: (2007) – Rick DiPietro made 20 saves and added an assist, while Richard Park scored the game-winning goal as the Islanders rallied for a 2-1 win over the Boston Bruins before a sellout crowd.

Highlights from NHL.com:

All-time, the Isles have played eight November 24th games at the Coliseum and have compiled a 5-1-2 record on this date at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale.  The 9th and final November 24th home game is tonight –as the Isles host Philadelphia at 7:00. Make sure you’re there, because after tonight, there are only 32 regular season games remaining.
