\'THE WALK OF CHAMPIONS\': March 4, 6:00 pm
1980 Stanley Cup Champs to take part in procession from Marriott to Coliseum

by Chris Botta

In an exciting addition to the plans for the March 4 Celebration of the Islanders 1980 Stanley Cup Team, there will be a pre-ceremony procession -- "The Walk of Champions" -- from the Long Island Marriott to the Nassau Coliseum beginning at 6:00 pm.

At that time, the "Architect," GM Bill Torrey will emerge from the Marriott and on to the Coliseum Plaza, followed by legendary coach Al Arbour, and then Hall of Fame broadcaster Jiggs McDonald, trainer Ron Waske and the players from the 1980 championship team. The players -- Bossy, Trottier, Smitty, Gillies, Nystrom, Tonelli, Goring, Sutter, Persson and so on -- will parade in numerical order.

With one exception: captain Denis Potvin will be last, holding the Stanley Cup.

Fans interested in lining The Walk of Champions to get a good look are encouraged to arrive at the Coliseum parking lot early. The procession route is simply from the Marriott's west entrance to the Coliseum box office area. The Walk should be over by 6:20, allowing plenty of time for fans to get into their seats for the pre-game ceremony, which starts at 7:00 pm sharp.

For security and practical purposes, there will not be an opportunity to obtain autographs during The Walk of Champions. This is an extraordinary opportunity to see legends up close, so we hope you will join us at the Coliseum on March 4 at 6:00 pm.

The 1980 Stanley Cup celebration on March 4, presented by Modell's and Newsday, will begin at 7:00 pm, followed by the regular season matchup between the 2005-06 Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers. In addition to the 1980 team, the Stanley Cup will also be in attendance at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Islanders full season subscribers will receive an added treat. Season subscribers are invited to the Islanders' morning skate on March 4, followed by an introduction of the 1980 team, sneak preview of that night's ceremony, plus a meet-and-greet with the legends.

Tickets are still available for the March 4 game between the Islanders and Flyers, preceded by the celebration of the 1980 Stanley Cup team. Tickets are available at the Coliseum box office, TicketMaster or by contacting the Islanders at 1.800.882.ISLES.
