The NHL’s New York Islanders were struggling. After winning four straight Stanley Cups in the early 1980s, the Islanders had suffered an embarrassing sweep by their geographic rivals, the New York Rangers, in the first round of the 1994 playoffs. Hoping for a new start, the Islanders swapped out their distinctive logo, which featured the letters NY and a map of Long Island, for a cartoon fisherman wearing a rain slicker and gripping a hockey stick. The new logo immediately drew comparisons to the mascot for Gorton’s frozen seafood, and opposing fans taunted the team with chants of “We want fish sticks!” During a rebranding process that lasted three torturous seasons, the Islanders unveiled a new mascot, new uniforms, new players, a new coach, and a new owner that were supposed to signal a return to championship glory. Instead, the team and its fans endured a twenty-eight-month span more humiliating than what most franchises witness over twenty-eight years. The Islanders thought they had traded for a star player to inaugurate the fisherman era, but he initially refused to report and sulked until the general manager banished him. Fans beat up the new mascot in the stands. The new coach shoved and spit at players. The Islanders were sold to a supposed billionaire who promised to buy elite players; he turned out to be a con artist and was sent to prison. We Want Fish Sticks examines this era through period sources and interviews with the people who lived it.

The intrastate rivalry between the Islanders and the Rangers is like no other in the NHL. Playing in the same league and with home rinks mere miles from one another, these two teams face off against each other multiple times a season. With devoted fans on either side backing their personal hometown favorites, the cross-town series between the two is often just as heated as championship games. In Rangers vs. Islanders, Fischler and Weinstock expertly narrate the entirety of the on-ice feud between the Islanders and Rangers. All of the major events are covered in-depth: from the Islanders’ founding in 1971; to the first meet-up in 1972; to the infamous 1975 playoff series; to all eight playoff meetings during the ’70s and ’80s; to the notorious Game Five of the 1984 playoffs; to the pair’s first-ever shootout in 2005; to the Islanders’ controversial move to Brooklyn in 2014; and every other major event in between. In addition to the heated on-ice action, Fischler and Weinstock also include all of the greatest off-ice moments in the legendary rivalry. With chapters on the impact of fans and interviews with players, coaches, and managers, Rangers vs. Islanders is a must-have for every true hockey fan, whether they root for the Islanders or the Rangers. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.
