8. April 10, 1984: Wolfman bites Rangers
As the 1984 postseason begins, the Isles seem ripe for the taking when the Rangers score first in each game of their first-round series against the four-time Cup champs and hold them without a power-play goal. Don Maloney sends the nerve-wracking, decisive Game 5 into overtime with a stunning (and disputed) tying tally with only 39 seconds to go in the third period. Then low-scoring defenseman Ken "Wolfman" Morrow (second from right) becomes an unlikely hero by driving a screen shot past Rangers goalie Glen Hanlon at 8:56 of OT to keep the Islanders' Drive for Five alive.
