It Happened at the Coliseum

My daily look back at this day in Coliseum history marches on...I haven't been sending daily emails about it, but you can find it each day at 7:40am (thanks, Coach) on http://www.nyiskinny.com/

However, the next 4 days have some special moments...

Today (1/21): 1982 - The Isles begin their 15 game winning streak (yada, yada, yada).  Also (2012) - a blogger makes the mistake of not including John Tavares in his Top 25 under 25.
Tomorrow (1/22): 1976 - The only hat trick by an Islander defenseman not named Denis Potvin -- and what that "trick"-ster did for me.
Friday (1/23): 1973 - Nixon ends the war, and the Isles celebrate with a home hat trick...and a rare win.
Saturday(1/24): 1981 - A twitter handle is born: @Bossy5050

Enjoy the All-Star Break!
