|From Islanders vs. Viscardi- April 4, 2011|
On Monday, April 4 2011, the New York Islanders visited the Henry Viscardi School and played our students in a game of floor hockey. The Islanders originally visited our school in December and promised to return with more of their teammates to take on our students in a game of floor hockey. When they returned they brought several of their teammates, the Islanders that came to our school included some of their biggest stars: PA Parenteau, Matt Moulson, John Tavares, Josh Bailey, Blake Comeau, Zenon Konopka, Micheal Haley and Matt Martin.
The game was action packed and fun for all involved. The Islanders and Viscardi traded goals back and forth and ended regulation in a tie. The game then went to overtime where Viscardi scored the winning goal in sudden death to win the game 4-3. After the game the Islanders spent time signing autographs and talking with our students.
Our students enjoyed the Islanders visit to our school and look forward to them returning for a rematch!!
