Getting to know Billy Smith...
👊🏼 He was nicknamed "Battlin' Billy" or "Hatchet Man" for his fiery temper and unabashed use of the stick or blocker on players crowding his crease; as such, forwards needed ankle guards to protect themselves. He would drop the gloves on almost every opportunity. .
🥅 Smith was the first goalie to win the Stanley Cup wearing the helmet-and-cage combination mask, rather than the fiberglass “Jason” mask.
Smith wore a fiberglass mask early in his career, but switched to the helmet-and-cage in 1978. .
🤝 Smith refused to participate in the traditional handshakes between teams at the end of a playoff series, as to not feel any worse after a loss than he already did.
🚨 Billy Smith is the first goalie credited with a goal. November 28, 1979, in a game between the Islanders and the Colorado Rockies, on a delayed penalty, Rockies Rob Ramage slid a puck back to a vacant point and it went in his own net. Since Smith was the last Islander to touch the puck... he was credited with the goal. .
😮 A notable incident with Smith occurred in practice where then-teammate Mike Bossy fired a shot at Smith to which Smith objected. Smith charged after Bossy with his stick swinging but was tackled by teammates before Smith could take his frustration out on Bossy. .

Tonight’s game is what we’ve been waiting for since July 1st. We all remember where we were and how we felt. Let’s enjoy it, make it memorable, and most importantly let’s get these 2 much needed points. #WeDontNeedYou

This is apparently the latest rendering of what Belmont will look like that was sent to season ticket holders. Thoughts?

Feb. 28th will go down as one of the most legendary games in Isles history. You can’t convince me that there is a better fanbase out there than us and I hope we reminded JT of that. He deserved everything he got. For the last time it’s not that he left, it’s HOW he left. Let’s carry this momentum into the final leg of the season as we make the push for the playoffs. What a time to be alive

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

Heute stand das Thema Sport auf dem Programm. Leider konnte die geplante Besichtigung des Yankeestadiums nicht stattfinden und so musste ich mich mit dem Blick von draußen zufrieden geben :(
Zurück in der City machte ich einen kurzen Abstecher zum Rockefellerplaza, der Saint Patrick's Cathedral und besuchte die Radio City Music Hall die wirklich imposant war.
Abends ging es dann ins Nassau Collosseum zum NHL Spiel NY Islanders vs Montreal Canadiens. 2-1 Sieg 😀 es war echt cool diese Atmosphäre einmal live zu erleben, Gänsehaut pur!
