As an Islanders fan, it's tough to sit back and watch the neighborhood bullies battle it out from the sidelines. But like any fan of the NHL, these are the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and you can't deny the Rangers-Devils is a grudge match made in hockey heaven.
And what's a classic grudge match without some good old fashioned sucker punching? That's what happened to the frustrated Mike Rupp of the Rangers last night when he planted one (not a kiss) on Devils goalie Martin Brodeur in the 3rd period. Rupp just couldn't deal with Brodeur and his 28 saves as the Devils won to even the Eastern Conference Finals at 2 games a piece. Even the coaches got into screaming unpleasantries at each other... So yes, the series is living up to the hype. Buckle up for Game 5 at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night.
Brodeur was a virtual shield last night in thwarting the Rangers. Thus we honor him and the Devils with the Original Retro Brand COOL VINTAGE T-SHIRT OF THE DAY.
