Links to peruse before the 2008-09 Battle of New York, Episode V:
- Love for Frans Nielsen in Newsday
- Love for K.O. and Josh Bailey in the Times (Islanders in the Times?!)
- All sorts of Rangers piling-on at NYT Slap Shot.
- Another call for Sather's head (Bleacher Report)
- Renney hopes the Rangers, you know, take this opponent seriously (NY Post)
This is a fun scenario. Islanders: nothing to lose. Rangers: so much, both real and symbolic, at stake.
