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!
