Game 7, Patrick Division semifinals. Score tied at 2 after regulation. At 8:47 of the fourth overtime, Islanders center Pat LaFontaine scores to win the game and the series.

This video is being posted as a fan response to a reported rift between Islanders management and LaFontaine. We call for a civil reuniting of the team and its former players.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I want to get something straight right off the bat. I'm not doing this to embarrass or humiliate the Islanders, or to somehow topple the Charles Wang regime. You will never meet a bigger, more supportive Islanders fan than me. I sincerely believe in the direction this team is taking and the slow, draft-centered climb back to respectability. I understand the concept and difficulties of rebuilding an entire franchise from the ground up. If you can't tell the difference between the strides of Snow & Wang versus the incompetence of Milbury & the clowns that owned the team before, then I can't help you.

But things need to be made right. As a way of peaceful social network protest and to let the team know how much players like Pat LaFontaine mean to the fans, I'm asking anyone who reads this to tweet this video to the Islanders official Twitter. Please use the tweet below:

@NYIslanders #Isles, BRING BACK PAT. http://youtu.be/TVIxqzbKR2Q. Please RT.

The sports heroes of Long Island are too valuable to lose. There is no reason for any of them to not be welcome at Nassau Coliseum. Let's make things right.
