The third of four Islanders Mini Lockers were distributed in conjunction with this Saturday night’s Islanders Tradition on Ice game. This Saturday’s game pays tribute to former Islanders’ forward Bob Nyström.
For each Tradition on Ice game, a limited number of Islanders Mini Locker collectibles were available with the purchase of tickets on islanders.nhl.com. The series features Billy Smith (Nov. 22), Denis Potvin (Nov. 29), Bob Nyström (Dec. 6), and Clark Gillies (Dec. 13).
In the Islanders’ first of four consecutive Stanley Cup victories in 1980, it was Bob Nyström who famously scored the overtime-winning goal. Nyström scored the May 24 goal at 7:11 of overtime against the Flyers’ Pete Peeters in game six of the final.
