Musical Interlude: Trottier and Gillies perform Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler”

It’s the wood that makes it good.

Know when to hold ‘em

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.
