Was Billboard an Omen?

The Easter Epic between the Islanders and Capitals was on April 18–19, 1987. The Islanders last game 5 win was in the division final against the Flyers on April 28, 1987. Both games are connected to last night... with the length of the game and it being a game 5 win and all. I was thinking about HOW long ago that really was. I wasn't even in high school yet. Then I looked to see what the #1 album was at that time. According to the Billboard 200 archive- when the playoffs started, and right up to the date of the Easter Epic (April 18, 1987), the #1 album was: Licensed to Ill - Beastie Boys How funny is that? No Sleep Til Brooklyn haha.
