Bossy Scores Winner at MET-Rx\'s Skate with the Greats

Imagine passing the puck on a rush with Islanders legend and Hockey Hall of Famer Mike Bossy. Next, imagine getting that chance while skating on the ice at Yankee Stadium days after the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. That dream became a reality for a group of lucky Islanders fans, who participated in MET-Rx’s Skate with the Greats game on Sunday.

The Yankee Stadium event marked the fifth installment of MET-Rx’s Skate with the Greats, but the first time the event was held outdoors. The 15 sweepstakes winners also skated alongside Islanders General Manager Garth Snow, Assistant Coach Doug Weight and local celebrities Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton from WFAN’s Boomer and Carton Morning Show.

“It was a whole different atmosphere,” Bossy said. “Everyone was simply in awe of our surroundings and getting to be part of a once in a lifetime experience.”

Team Bossy donned Islanders blue sweaters and came away with the 8-7. The nine-time 50-goal scorer tallied the game-winning goal with less than a minute remaining.

“I typically only lace up the skates once a year for this event that MET-Rx puts together,” Bossy said. “But hey, I’ve been playing all my life and I love going back out there and scoring.”

“This was such an amazing experience to not only play hockey with guys like Bossy and Weight, but to be able to do it in Yankee Stadium makes this something I will never forget,” Paul Dudley said. “I hadn’t skated in years, but it all came back to me when we dropped the puck.”
