The New York Rangers are playing the New Jersey Devils and the New York Islanders at Yankee Stadium for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series in the end of January. Could these pinstripe pads for Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist be a tribute to the Yankees? If so that is awesome. [@JEspo0022]
Jay Z has unveiled the dates for his Magna Carta World Tour and included among his stops is the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, home of the New York Islanders and colloquially known as “The Mausoleum.” Usually relegated to hosting things like Disney on Ice, Luke Bryan concerts and decades of Islander’s ineptitude, the Jan. 19
The expert of “Athletic Aesthetics” Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) just tweeted out a picture of the Buffalo Sabres new third jerseys and let’s just say… ish don’t think so. Here’s the rear view: Hey, at least it’s still better than this egregious eyesore of an alternate sweater: We’re All Islanders!
