Islanders fan has an interesting story about the arena parking lot

Tuesday February 17th, 2015

The New York Islanders are headed to Brooklyn's Barclays Center after this season ends so fans are looking to share their memories of the Nassau Coliseum, they will have a hard time topping the one Joy Rosen shared on Monday night though.

Rosen was interviewed as her beloved Islanders took on the rival New York Rangers and spoke about what made the team's 1982-'83 Stanley Cup winning season.

Not only was her son conceived in the parking lot, Joy goes on to explain that she went into labor during the team's Stanley Cup Final series against the Edmonton Oilers but was lucky enough to be done in time to watch the clinching game live, according to the full interview, which can be seen on Deadspin.

This woman's dedication to the Islanders is unrivaled.
