Islanders - Rangers Rivalry Spills Into the Stands For a Good Old New York Fan Fight

Stephen Douglas

The New York Islanders currently sit atop the NHL’s Eastern Conference. The New York Rangers are the current 6-seed. The Islanders haven’t finished a season with more points than the Rangers since the 2002-2003 season. Between that and the Manhattan – Long Island thing, I think it is safe to say there could be some resentment harbored somewhere in the East River. Now that the Islanders are good again, their fans can finally fight back. Before they get carried off by security.

UPDATE: Here is a much better video of the fight. Except for the Rangers fan who started it, it looks like a lot of fun for everyone involved.
