Recycled Ice

So if MSG can run "Summer Ice," then I can resurrect a post since there's nothing really doing.

Tonight on MSG they replayed the 1/6/10 game between the Isles and the Avs, or should we say the Duchene vs Tavares game. This was also the game that Rob Schremp scored his spectacular goal which showcased his amazing hand eye co-ordination.

Jiggs called this one with Billy Jaffe while Howie was away. I can't help but smile while watching it -- and eating ice cream. Yep. It's the dog days of August, and soon it will be September.

Then it all starts again.

Original Post from 1/6/10:
Wow! So the Islanders manage to come away with two points in regulation on a Kyle Okposo game winner, a Robbie Schremp home run goal and the dirty work of Jon Sim to start it off.

They haven't won in Colorado since 1999. This was an important win for the Islanders and an impressive game for Dwayne Roloson who made some spectacular saves and for at least 40 minutes seemed to be carrying the entire team.

Rick DiPietro sat on the bench chewing gum wildly and taking in all the action. Nate Thompson was back in action and for two seconds it looked as if they would lose Andy Sutton again.

With all the negative attention that Bruno Gervais has taken, I would just like to make note that he played well tonight with the exception of the miscue with Roloson on the side of the net.

This was the last game until March that Jiggs McDonald will call. It was great to have him on the broadcast.

Travel safe boys as you head to Dallas where at least it should be a little warmer.
