The Islanders are off again today and yeah, we would recount the insane rollercoaster they’ve been on over the last week or so, but you know what? We need a break.
So here’s a minute of Bryan Trottier and Clark Gillies performing Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler at Regina Pats Homecoming Weekend, courtesy of the Twitter account for former NHLer Curtis Leschyshyn:

Trottier, as you may know, comes from a musical family and performed on stage as a kid. You can catch him playing at hockey events and elsewhere when he’s away from the rink. Gillies is usually more known as a storyteller who can weave a tale with the best of them, but he does Rogers proud. Gillies played for Regina from 1971-1974 before joining the Islanders that spring. Trottier played for WCHL rivals Swift Current and Lethbridge from 1972-75 before he came to Long Island.
Enjoy your Sunday.
