HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – In this final installment of the Stan Fischler interviews, Chris Riley and Fischler talk the early days of the SportsChannel in the NY metropolitan area and the broadcast of the New York Islanders.
Fischler talks of the Islanders run through the playoffs in ’75 and taking down much stronger opponents that year. The Islanders eventually won 19 straight playoff series, a feat that seems destined to go unbroken.
For Fischler, the first Islander Cup, the Rangers’ Cup in ’94 and the Devils’ Cup in ’95 were memorable.
Fischler is also known as the “The Hockey Maven” in the NY area given to him by Al Goldfarb.
