Here are the highlights, with Howie and Butch:
Here are some highlights from the SportsChannel broadcast and then the full-game broadcast, from Hockey Night in Canada:
Finally, here's how Channel 4 and Channel 7 covered it.
Also on this date: (1975) Jude Drouin scored the first overtime goal in Coliseum history at the 1:53 mark as the Isles cut Philadelphia's lead to 3 games to 1 with a 4-3 victory. It was the earliest overtime goal ever scored in a playoff game at the Coliseum, until John Tavares broke the record last month, scoring 15 seconds into overtime of game three vs. Washington.
This is one of the earliest full-game Islander videos that I have seen -- it is from the Flyers broadcast with Gene Hart and Don Earle on the call. So grab a case of Tastykakes and enjoy! Overtime almost didn't happen -- go to 1:53:00 into the video to see how close the Flyers came from eliminating the Isles. Check out the winning goal -- Don Earle immediately says that Parise was two feet offside -- he was!
All-time, the Isles played three playoff games on May 7th at the Coliseum; they compiled a 3-0 playoff record on this date at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale.
