To be frank, it's easier to find a hooking call on Crosby in a 3rd period tie than it is to find these games. It doesn't appear possible to search by useful terms such as "Islanders" etc. If anyone notices any additional games that pop up, please add to the comments section.
After the jump, I'll have Isles new and classic games separated by compilation title. Note that I added some disclaimers that may act as "spoilers". If you want to be surprised, don't read on, but I didn't want anyone to go out and buy an Islander heartbreaker or anything. All games can be purchased individually for $1.99, or as part of their respective compilations ($9.99 for Cup Winners, Rivalries and Player Spotlight). There are preview clips available (about 30 seconds worth) so if you are interested in the quality, I would preview first...they're old games. I only checked a handful, but I did not hear Jiggs McDonald and Ed Westfall at all. It sounds like Bob Cole.
As of yet, "TEH RECKONING" (2/11/11 vs Penguins for those who are not Lighthouse regulars) has not been added to the "NHL Greatest Games 2010-2011" set...and may never be, for you see, the Isles besmirched the reputation of the NHL and therefore, that game, stunk. Enjoy!
