Thanks to the Made in China virus, there's no live hockey to watch. But some really awesome people on YouTube have helped because there's some classic games to watch.

This one is a gem. Rangers at Atlanta, Game 4 of the preliminary round (back when the first round was 3 out of 5), 1980. Jim Gordon and The Big Whistle, Bill Chadwick. Rangers were ahead in the series 2 games to 1, needing this game to win the series. The audio is not of Jim and Bill at first due to technical difficulties, a common thing back then. But they fix it before the start of the game. The NHL in 1980 featured stand up goalies, guys without helmets, and 2 minutes fighting penalties because they didn't throw enough punches.

Listen to Chadwick's commentary. He's a NY legend because he speaks his mind and he's blunt. Something that NY'ers were once known for, before we all got castrated by "wokeness". No filter, no political correctness, no concerns that he won't get a national TV gig like Rosen and Michiletti. He calls players and refs out without hesitation. And his phrases are legendary. In case you didn't know, Willie Plett of the Flames is "a tough cookie".

Enjoy!

Tough cookie was one of my favorite "Chadwickism's".

When one of the players took a dive to draw a penalty .... "You can get the water up here, Jim."

I loved the guy and miss him so much.

My dad used to say, "Chadwick can see more out of one eye than most can see with two."

He lost that eye while playing. Can you imagine the crap he must've taken from the players of those days early in his career as a ref. Graduate of Jamaica High School in Queens.

Here's a quick highlight video from 1981, Game 4 of the quarter-finals (best of 7), Rangers vs. St. Louis. For context, the Blues finished that regular season with 107 points, second only to the Islanders who had 110. The Blues were predicted by all the "experts" to meet the Isles in the Finals, and were seen as legit Cup contenders. Rangers won in 6 games but were swept by the Isles in the semi finals.

There's a few glimpses of Joe Micheletti in this one, defenseman for the Blues.

Before playing the Blues in the '81 quarter finals, the Rangers met the LA Kings in the preliminary round (best of 5). The Kings finished the regular season with 99 points, putting them as the #4 seed in the playoffs. The Rangers had 74 points that season, and were the 13th seed.

This series featured an all out brawl in Game 2 in LA.

The Rangers - Islanders rivalry was never more fierce than in the early 80's. Here's highlights of a great game for the Rangers, February of 1981.

No discussion about The Big Whistle would be be complete without the infamous Durbano incident. The video is kinda bad, but it still brings back the memories.

That was a great Ranger memory. Watched it all. Esposito so steady playing with Don Maloney and Don Murdoch. The guy that sticks out for me was Murdoch, the Ranger fans never got to see him at his full potential, which was a shame. One of the best Junior Hockey goal scorers I’ve ever seen. In a different universe or karma or he just stayed away from the off ice crap, and he would have been the Rangers Bossy. Terrible waste of incredible scoring talent.

The loss of Murdoch set the franchise back a number of years. He was better than Bossy, he could hit and score dirty goals as well as snipe from the perimeter. Having him for the series against the Isles from '81 to '85 would've gotten a Rangers win in at least one of those series, probably '85. In '86, when they outplayed the Habs in just about every game but couldn't score on a rookie named Roy, he would've been a difference maker.

Yup anywhere inside the top of the circles he could snap it in. Quick and accurate release. And like you say wasn't scared to go or take it to the net. Losing him was a tough loss.

I had forgotten how James Patrick threw a vicious beating on Dave Poulin. Wow. Dave Brown, the biggest chicken**** thug ever to play, turtled and held on for dear life twice against Beck.

Despite the hysteria today about how bad these games were for the sport, they actually didn't occur that frequently. Fighting yes, but bench clearers, no. It was good for rivals to get the bad blood out every once in awhile.
