Top 10 NY Sports Moments of 2009

December 30, 2009

...where dreams are made of

As 2009 comes to a close, and Luis Castillo drops the ball  in Times Square, we reflect on those moments (good or bad) in the past year that made New York sports entertaining, frustrating, and memorable.  Players went down, new players arrived, and even a Championship was won for the city.  Tears were shed, fans jumped for joy, and in a time of recession sports provided us with an outlet to escape.

Moulson Ice- Hat trick helps cool off Atlanta

December 4, 2009

Matt Moulson celebrates one of his three goals on the night

 

For the second time in as many games, the Islanders defeated the dangerous and dynamic Atlanta Thrashers 4-1 in the ATL Thursday night.  The story of the game was Matt Moulson and his first ever NHL hat-trick.  Moulson now has two mult-goal games this season and leads the team with 14 goals. 

“It was good,” Moulson said. “My dad said he’d lock me out if I didn’t score or we didn’t get a win.”

Islanders serve as Devils food

November 28, 2009

New Jersey scored at will in the third period

 

The final score read 6-1 in favor of the Devils, but the game was much closer than that.  

New Jersey had a 2-1 lead midway through the third period, and thanks to two questionable interference calls, had a 5 on 3 power-play advantage.  After a high stick no-call, Patrik Elias cashed in to make it 3-1, and the Devils never looked back.  They proceeded to score two more, and three total in just over two minutes of play, and added a 6th for good measure with just seconds remaining.

Johnny on the spot

November 27, 2009

Tavares' put-back gave the Islanders the win

 

Rookie phenom John Tavares scored his 10th goal of the season on a rebound with 6:12 left in the third to give the Islanders a 3-2 lead that they would not relinquish.  Josh Bailey and Sean Bergenheim also scored, and Dwayne Roloson was sensational yet again in goal.  Bailey now has four goals in his last five games.

Evgeni Malkin and Matt Cooke netted goals for the Penguins, and goaltender Brent Johnson made 34 saves.

Flyers out hustle, out muscle, Islanders in 2-1 win

November 26, 2009

Scott Hartnell scored the game-winner for the Flyers

Despite grabbing the Flyers’ most potent Islander-killer of years past in Martin Biron (12-1-0 against the Islanders), New York still couldn’t beat Philadelphia on Long Island last night.  The Islanders went all of last year without beating Philadelphia, and although Biron was solid in net,  the Islanders didn’t give him much help.  The Isles registered only one shot on goal in the third period that was tied 1-1 until Scott Hartnell’s game-winner at 14:33.  The Islanders had 28 shots throughout the first two periods, but seemed to tire towards the end as the Flyers were able to out-work them to loose pucks.
