May 24, 1980. One of the best days of my life. Scoring tickets to Game 6 at the last minute. Watching Nystrom Score the OT goal. Parking lot craziness. Then heading down Hempstead Tnpk to the Calderone Concert Hall to see one of my favorite Prog Rock bands Gentle Giant in my Trottier Jersey. For the encore the Derek the lead singer came out in an Isles Jersey and played their song Number 1,  from their Album Civilian. Place went nuts! Show was broadcast on WLIR and is avail on the interwebs.

From @sampuckdrop13:
My best Islanders memory was on September 19, 2010. I got invited to training camp to meet Ricky DiPietro. I had his game worn jersey and he signed it for me and I gave him a birthday card so he gave me a huge hug. He gave me his goalie stick and told me to have the whole team sign it.  I met the entire team and got a great gift from Rick.  I'll never forget how great the team was to me.

One of my best memories?  Being at a game just after the Canadian government helped 6 Americans escape the Iranian hostage crisis in January or February 1980 and getting choked up when the ENTIRE crowd sang the Canadian National anthem at full volume from start to finish and ended with a standing ovation

My favorite memory was when Mike Bossy reached 50 goals. The exuberance he showed was inspiring. After that I trained harder and went on to score 25 goals in my high school senior year, just before I blew out both knees.

Watching Bobby Ny's shot hit the twines to win the cup, then, later, having Bryan Trottier come to the Wheatley Tavern in Westbury to personally thank all the Islander fans for their support.  A classy guy!

I was six years old during the 1992-93 playoffs. Pierre Turgeon was my favorite player. It was game seven of the Pittsburgh Penguins series. My mom had just gone to sleep, and I was awake with my dad in our living room in Deer Park. I remember asking my dad, who was the Islanders PA announcer at the time, to not go crazy if the Islanders scored because mom was asleep, and I hated those loud and sudden reactions at the time because I was so young.

When David Volek's one-timer from Ray Ferraro went into the net, my father and I jumped up and whispered as loud and as excited as we could without freaking me out. We rejoiced if we had just won the cup. It was a truly amazing moment, and one I will never ever forget.

I remember that day I attended the game when Billy Smith #31 banner went up. And I first saw the Stanley cup.
