The New York Islanders were the embodiment of greatness: four-time Stanley Cup champions and a model franchise in the NHL during the early '80s. The dynasty crumbled, however, and the team found itself in a freefall. This book tells the story of their remarkable 2001-02 resurgence.

About the author (2003)

Alan Hahn is an award-winning sports writer for Newsday, who covered the National Hockey League for seven seasons, which included three Stanley Cup Finals appearances by the New Jersey Devils, the passing of the torch from Wayne Gretzky to Jaromir Jagr to Sidney Crosby, and the 2004-05 lockout. Hahn's experience also brought him to meet Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo as youngsters toiling with the New York Islanders before they grew into stars. His coverage of the 1999-2000 NHL season earned him Newsday's prestigious Publisher's Award for Sports Writing. He has also garnered several Press Club of Long Island awards throughout his career. Hahn's coverage for Newsday expanded to the NBA and the New York Knicks in 2006, but he has remained an avid hockey scribe and has occasionally written articles for "The Hockey News" and "USA Hockey Magazine", and has been a guest on MSG Network's popular show, Hockey Night Live. He has authored two hockey books, "Fish Sticks: The Fall and Rise of the New York Islanders" and "Birth of a Dynasty: The 1980 New York Islanders". The 40-year-old Hahn lives in Long Island, New York, with his wife and three children.
