An Important Day in NYI History

In 1975: Ed Westfall presents Philadelphia icon Kate Smith with a bouquet of roses before her performance of “God Bless America,” but the Flyers go on to win Game Seven, 4-1, and eliminate the Islanders in the Stanley Cup Semifinals. Al Arbour salutes his team’s maturity by saying, “If I called a practice next week, every one of them would show up.”

In 1993: David Volek scores at 5:16 of overtime as the Islanders stun the Pittsburgh Penguins, who were the two-time defending Stanley Cup Champions, four games to three in the Patrick Division Final.

Make It Seven? is the website that has stirred the pot in hockey circles in the last 24 hours as Jim Balsillie tries to hijack the Phoenix Coyotes.

How this rollercoster ride will stop is anyone's guess. My feeling is the NHL will eventually win, the Coyotes will stay where they are and that they'll be a successful team in the playoffs next season. But who really knows...

What I do know is that this little thing called the Internet will make it an enjoyable ride for those on the outside., and any Toronto-based newspaper (Globe and Mail, TO Sun and TO Star) will be the places you'll want to check freqentuly for story updates.
