2019 FDNY-NYPD Game Recap

FD PD Game 2019
FDNYlockerroom 1

The 46th Annual FDNY-NYPD Charity Game took place on Saturday, March 30th at Madison Square Garden to a sold out crowd of over 18,000 fans for the third time in four years. New York’s Bravest were wearing white while New York’s Finest wore blue. In a locker room presentation, the FDNY team presented the family of Michael Davidson E-69, who lost his life at a fire last year, with a check for $10,000. The on ice pre-game ceremony included the FDNY and NYPD Ceremonial Units, Pipes and Drums, Dignitaries, a ceremonial puck drop with the Davidson family and a moment of silence for all those we have lost on the last year from Line of Duty Deaths as well as 9/11 Related Illness. Municipal Credit Union and Ford made check presentations to both teams as well. Hooters was the official game sponsor.

Puck dropped at 11:55am and it was a close first period with neither team scoring. Anthony Antenucci opening the scoring for the FDNY at the 5 minute mark of the second period, on assists from Derek Kern and Joe Sanger. A little over 2 minutes later the NYPD tied it up with a goal from Lopes. (Assists - McAleer/Morales) NYPD took a 2-1 lead on a goal from Antonik with an assist from Hurley and Charlie Venticinque.   NY’s Finest had a power play and was Ragone was able to score off an assist from McCreery.

Derek Kern (Assist - Thomas Esposito) score just 12 seconds into the third period to bring the FDNY to within one goal. Jim Becker ended up tying the game at 3-3 with a backhand shot up over the goalie. At 14:59, Anthony Antenucci scored his second of the game off a pass from John Sullivan to take the first Bravest lead of the day. Less than a minute later NYPD Antonitis scored to take away the FDNY lead and tie up the game at 4-4. The game ended regulation tied and ended up doing a 5 on 5 overtime for 5 minutes. A couple close calls but the game ran out of time and the two teams had to settle for a time.

Thank you to all our fans that came to the game and supported the team. Both teams were able to run a 50/50 and the donation of $10,000 went to the Ray Pfeifer Foundation. The team also did a t-shirt collaboration with the New York Ranger Fans Clothing Company, WeBleedBlue.com, and were able to raise another $4,000 for the Ray Pfeifer Foundation. The Ray Pfeifer Foundation are a charitable organization that are dedicated to assisting September 11th first responders, firefighters and police, with medical needs not covered by insurance.

FDNY defeats NYPD, 5-4, in thrilling shootout at MSG in 45th Annual Charity Hockey Game

FDNY defeats NYPD, 5-4, in thrilling shootout at MSG in 45th Annual Charity Hockey Game

On Saturday, March 24, 2018 the FDNY faced off with the NYPD in the 45th Annual Charity Hockey Game. First Deputy Commissioner Laura Kavanagh represented the FDNY in the opening ceremony, and a moment of silence was held for members who made the Supreme Sacrifice this year in the line-of-duty - Lt. Christopher Raguso, Lt. Michael Davidson, Fire Marshal Christopher "Tripp" Zanetis and FF. William Tolley - and all those lost to illness as a result of the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center.

The FDNY Hockey Team made a $15,000 donation to the Ray Pfeifer Foundation. MCU made a $5,000 donation to the FDNY/NYPD Hockey Teams. Our team sponsor, Haix, also participated in the pre-game ceremony. It also was a celebration of 50 Years of Bravest Hockey, founded back in 1968, by members Tim Gallagher, Ed McLoughlin and Gene Scott. Ed dropped the ceremonial puck with long time GM Billy Kammerer for the FDNY while Gerry Cassagne dropped it for NYPD and also Bobby Tolley, brother of FF. William Tolley.
 
The puck dropped at noon and the NYPD started the scoring with a quick power play goal from McAleer (Lopes) at 19:02. John Sullivan (Kern) tied it up on a power play goal at 16:51, tying the score 1-1 for the 1st period.

Steve Romano scored an unassisted goal at 15:28 of the second period. Power play goals later in the second by Finest player Gambardella (Harrigan) at 5:51 and Bravest player Joe Sanger (Zeilman) at 4:41. So after the second period it was New York’s Bravest leading 3-2.

NYPD’s Lopes (Harrigan) tied it up with a little over two minutes into the 3rd period. Chris Princiotta (Keane) gave the FDNY a 4-3 lead a little less than half way through the third but it was NYPD’s Gabay (Antiok, Antianades) who tied it up and end in regulation 4-4.

Due to the New York Rangers playing later that evening the teams had to be off the ice by a set time so it went straight to a 3-man shootout. Being the home team, NYPD decided to shoot last so the Fire Department was shooting first.
 
Shooters for FD were:                                                 Shooters for PD were:

6 - Elfant – scored                                                       13 - McAleer – missed s

16 - Kelly – missed                                                     77 - Gambardella – missed

12 - Romano – missed                                                21 - Antianades – scored

7 - Kern – missed                                                        72 - Antiok – missed

13 - Antenucci – scored                                              20 - Morales – missed
 
Anthony Antenucci’s game winning goal lifted the FDNY to a 5-4 victory. Goaltender Kurt Pflumm recorded 44 saves for the day and landed the MVP for FDNY. FDNY now leads the 45 year series with a 25-18-2 record.
 
Thank you to Don LaGreca and Rick DiPietro for broadcasting the game on ESPN and EJ Radek for interviewing Pete on NHL Network. Thank you to all our fans for your support!!! See you again next year.

289/138 won The B Division sponsored by MSA
287/136 won The C Division final sponsored by MCU
280/132 won The D division sponsored by Haix
305/151 won The E division sponsored by Sideline Swap

The 8th annual King of The Wheels is coming up and emails were sent out to team captains.  The deadline for registration and payment is November 21st.  It will be held at Skate Safe in Old Bethpage from December 5th to December 16th.  Each team will play one day the 1st week (round robin) and one day the 2nd week (playoffs).  All teams will play 3 games the first day and at least 2 games the second day.

Forms can be found here: Flyer and Registration Form
The round robin will be played from December 5th to December 9th.  Please list in order what days are best for your house on the registration form.  Please indicate any days that don't work for your house that week on your registration form as well.  We are planning on using Wednesday December 7th, Thursday December 8th and Friday December 9th for the round robin.  If the rink schedule changes or we have an increase in teams from last year then we will use different or additional days. Once the schedule is made it can't be changed.

Please check on any house functions, boys night outs, weddings, ice hockey schedule and anything else that might cause a conflict. The playoffs will be held December 12th to December 16th and the day you play will be determined by how your team does in the round robin.

Playoffs could be any day the week of December 12th.  It is looking like Thursday December 15th and Friday December 16th but these dates could change due to the rinks schedule.  An additional day may be added if needed to accommodate more teams.

The rink is under new management so some things have changed and we might need to adjust to the new management.  That is why I'm uncertain of some of the days.  They need to see what rink time on what days they need for kids clinics and classes they offer every day.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT GAMES COULD START AT 8AM THIS YEAR FOR BOTH ROUND ROBIN AND PLAYOFFS

We are doing a pre-order for T-shirts again this year.  We are taking Pre-orders to help reduce the price and over ordering.  The form for this years shirts will be sent out shortly as we are still working on the design of the shirt.  Any pre-orderd shirts will be $10 except for xxl which is $12.  Any shirt purchased at the rink will be $15 ($17 for xxl).
Please mail your pre-order shirt form with the registration form as pre-orders are due by November 21st as well.  T-shirts and registration payment can be on one check or two seperate.  However you want to handle it.  The shirts will be 50/50 blend.
