ISLANDERS PROMOTE HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER

Saturday's contest against New Jersey raises awareness about a disease that affects millions

This Saturday the Islanders will hold the team's Hockey Fights Cancer game when the New Jersey Devils visit on Firefighters Appreciation Night at 7 pm.

As a response to the world's most deadliest disease, the NHL has proclaimed October as Hockey Fights Cancer Month, a 31-day period dedicated to raising awareness any money to fight caner.

Throughout Saturday's game you may notice some subtle – and not so subtle – changes to the game presentation.

If you look closely enough, you'll find that members of the hockey ops staff, including Ted Nolan and the entire coaching staff, GM Garth Snow, as well as FSN broadcasters Howie Rose and Billy Jaffe will be sporting pink ties to support the cause. In addition, the players will have pink decals on their helmets.

In addition to the pink ties seen behind the bench on the coaching staff, during warm-ups, four-year old Leukemia patient Christian Sterns will serve as the team's stick boy. Christian has been a huge Islanders fan his whole life.

On the concourse, you will be able to purchase Pink Hats at any of the merchandise stands, with all of the proceeds benefiting the Carol M. Baldwin Foundation – breast cancer research fund and center. Visit their website at http://www.findacure.org.

Also on the concourse, located at Gate 3.5, you may purchase 50/50 raffle tickets, in which the proceeds go towards Hewlett House 1 in 9 – Long Island's Breast Cancer Action Coalition. You can check out their website at www.1in9.org.

An added Islanders flavor to the event is helped out by RexCorp's Islanders Inspire. Bill Guerin elected to have his tickets go to local charities dedicated to providing services to kids affected by cancer. Ronald McDonald House, The Hope and Heroes Children's Cancer Fund and Long Island Cancer Alliance will all be sending kids to Saturday's Islanders game against the Devils.

"As someone who has been personally affected by cancer, this night means a lot to me," said Guerin. "I hope I can make a difference in the lives of these kids."

Everyone can make a difference in the fight against cancer. Come show your support by attending the Islanders Hockey Fights Cancer Game on Saturday.
