In April 1984, the Islanders were in the middle of the Drive for Five looking for their fifth Stanley Cup in a row. One of the rookies on the team, along with Pat Flatley, was Pat LaFontaine. Here, LaFontaine is interviewed by Al Trautwig during an intermission of one of the games in their series against Montreal. The Islanders would beat Montreal in the conference finals before moving on to face Gretzky and the Oilers in the SCF for the second year in a row.
