Description

The intrastate rivalry between the Islanders and the Rangers is like no other in the NHL. Playing in the same league and with home rinks mere miles from one another, these two teams face off against each other multiple times a season. With devoted fans on either side backing their personal hometown favorites, the cross-town series between the two is often just as heated as championship games. In Rangers vs. Islanders, Fischler and Weinstock expertly narrate the entirety of the on-ice feud between the Islanders and Rangers. All of the major events are covered in-depth: from the Islanders' founding in 1971; to the first meet-up in 1972; to the infamous 1975 playoff series; to all eight playoff meetings during the '70s and '80s; to the notorious Game Five of the 1984 playoffs; to the pair's first-ever shootout in 2005; to the Islanders' controversial move to Brooklyn in 2014; and every other major event in between. In addition to the heated on-ice action, Fischler and Weinstock also include all of the greatest off-ice moments in the legendary rivalry. With chapters on the impact of fans and interviews with players, coaches, and managers, Rangers vs. Islanders is a must-have for every true hockey fan, whether they root for the Islanders or the Rangers.
