In this newly updated version of Rangers vs. Islanders, Fischler and Weinstock expertly narrate the entirety of the on-ice feud between the Islanders and Rangers. All of the major events are covered in-depth: from the Islanders’ founding in 1971; to the first meet-up in 1972; to the infamous 1975 playoff series; to all eight playoff meetings during the ’70s and ’80s; to the notorious Game Five of the 1984 playoffs; to the pair’s first-ever shootout in 2005; to the Islanders’ controversial move to Brooklyn in 2014; and every other major event in between.
In addition to the heated on-ice action, Fischler and Weinstock also include all of the greatest off-ice moments in the legendary rivalry. With chapters on the impact of fans and interviews with players, coaches, and managers, Rangers vs. Islanders is a must-have for every true hockey fan, whether they root for the Islanders or the Rangers.
