Islanders and Rangers Get Reacquainted
The two teams titled New York renewed their rivalry yesterday in a Columbus Day/Thanksgiving matinee. It was an entertaining game with a good fight, a little controversy, plenty of goals and a dramatic ending.
Zenon Konopka and Brandon Prust, the leaders in fighting majors last season, met up a little over 8 minutes into the first period. They had a long, technical fight. Odds are we’ll seen another one, or even a few, throughout this season.
The game was a fun one overall, with lead changing hands a few times and the Islanders scoring two power play goals late to win.
