\"New York\u2019s Greatest Hockey Rivalries\u201D revisits the best matchups between the Rangers and Islanders from the 80s, 90s and 2000s with personal anecdotes from Dave Maloney and Pat Flatley

MSG Network debuted a new hockey series called “New York’s Greatest Hockey Rivalries” on Monday, November 19 at 9:00 p.m. The series looks back at some of the most intense games between the Rangers and Islanders over the past three decades.

Each two hour episode of “New York’s Greatest Hockey Rivalries” will feature host Bill Pidto alongside Pat Flatley and Dave Maloney, MSG’s expert hockey analysts who played in many of the showcased games and have unique and personal stories to share about their experiences.

Monday’s premiere episode looked back at Game 5 of the 1984 Patrick Division Semi-Final between the Rangers and Islanders in which star defenseman Ken Morrow scored the game-winner in overtime to send the Isles to the second round of the playoffs.

In the episode, Flatley, who was on the ice when Morrow scored, said about the game: “Even today, I can still feel the nervousness of that evening, which started in the morning, and almost being sick to my stomach all day in anticipation of the game and fearing losing (to the Rangers).”
