"And Islanders in their history, because I've used as you pointed out, Joe that Mike has often said there's there's never been any like big games between the two right or big moments, but I don't know. I mean, I kinda want to push back a little bit. The Sabres met when that happened. It was the conference finals of 1980. Right. I mean, like, you know, the Sabres were kind of the barrier for the Islanders to get to their first cup. The Islanders didn't even win the division in 79 80. Philly did they beat him in the first round? The Sabres had the second best record in the league behind Philly. Philly gets knocked out, but the Sabres can't take advantage. Because they can't get over the Islanders. Saber is 110 points that you're Joe 110. I mean, It might be like the would it be considered like the 056 Sabres of that generation, because I might want to make a case if someone comes at me with a discussion of what's the best sabre team ever, I might want to. I'm going to want to argue for that. Oh, six Sabres team even though they didn't go as far as 99 75. But as you're pointing out here, the record like they were dominant in the regular season. By record they were I mean, you go and look at some of the stats from that team to you. Go look at the Sabres of the 79 80 Sabres team and their goal scorers, okay? Gilbert Perot. Okay, They'd three guys score 40 or more pro. Had 40. Danny Garrett 56 Rick Martin had 45 all right. Pro 106 points Now it was totally different time period. I get it, but they were really, really good. But they get to the playoffs. Joe, You know who the Sabres play in the playoffs in the first round that year? That's gonna blow your mind. You might already know this. This is an 81st round. Yep. 79 80 sabers first round. I think I do know this because I've been told it before, and I remember being blown away but go ahead. The Vancouver Canucks, right? Like what? They played the Vancouver in the first time, it was fairly recently within the last year or two that I discovered that the Sabres once upon a time played the Vancouver Canucks, and I think a five game opening round series is just mind blowing. Yeah. And in the following series, they play the Chicago Blackhawks and sweep them in four. I mean, the Sabres go into that Islanders series in 80. Winning seven out of eight games. When they were they were hot. The Islanders come into that series. They're hot to they just knocked off. You know, the best team in the league, the Philadelphia Flyers and then The Sabres go down three. Nothing in the series win the next two, and they wind up losing the, um, losing in Game six. And that is, I believe the game where the incident happened. Which is Billy Smith. Uh huh. But ending Lindy Ruff with his stick, And then you know, Lindy, right in the eye. By the way, it was. It's a famous incident and I I tweeted. I got the The link on YouTube. But someone did tweet me and I forgot this and this is right. One night in Buffalo, 1985. Islanders are playing the Sabres. Power goes out at the odd And that game during that game. There is a great fight between Bob Nystrom. Who is this tough as nails Dude for the the Islanders. Steve Dykstra, who savers who was a really scrappy, good fighter, and they went at it and, um, that people remember that fight in that night because the power went out at the odd but I think that kind of underscores the point we're making, which is These two teams don't have a great history of a lot of things happening on the ice. Yeah, I thought about during the break, like does anything beat the Billy Smith? Lindy Ruff moment. And like, I couldn't think of anything that even comes close. They did play the Islanders. And was it the opening of Oh, seven Oh, seven, right? Yeah. The first round. The first series was the Islanders where we were all waiting for the playoffs basically to come, and the regular season was just like, all right. We're good here, right? We're just coasting, and then they get to the Islanders, who were No one expected to make the playoffs. They got in the last day of the season, and they were looked at as a pushover, and they weren't great in that series of savers, But it was five games. There wasn't there's one memorable moment that I remember from that series in Game five, but it happened here in Buffalo, where the Islanders are down one goal with like, 20 seconds left and Miroslav shit on Was just an incredible coast to coast effort, and he's about to score an insane highlight real goal to tie it as he goes around Miller and Miller like flips on his back and slams his glove on the ice. Just as shit ain't is shooting it. It makes an incredible save that it still blows me away. How many Sabre fans just don't remember that moment at all, because it's a clutch save to win a series by Miller on a former saber, so that one is good, but that's here in Buffalo. Wouldn't that go down, as wasn't there a discussion when Miller retired just a couple weeks ago here in the station about like Miller's best saves. Did you mentioned that one? I mentioned it. It didn't get a lot of fanfare, though, because it's a series that like I don't looking back. People don't really think about it that much, you know. Sabres lost Game two at home, 3 to 2. They go. They go on the island of someone pointed me out, pointed out on Twitter. It's on the island in the island. That's right. They go on the island. They win 32. They went four to they win. 432 win that series. Yeah, there wasn't the series that year was the next one. It was the Rangers because of what happened with, you know, jewelry and Max and the overtime goal, right? I mean, that's the famous Ranger series that came after that, But you're right. That Islander series has kind of forgotten. And it's in a way, Joe. I think that I know it's not completely the same, but I think The reason why I think that happens is because the same thing with The bills had gone two Super Bowls and you kind of lose and forget about the early playoff games in those Super Bowl years because you just kind of expected them to win, and then they did, and it's actually the reason and I tell people this all the time. Everybody says.

"All right you know Ground zero the defunding the police movement was minneapolis. Because that's where george floyd was killed and it spread to cities all across the country in minneapolis. City council up there see. I think that's a pretty good idea and now so many politicians are suing the city because of the increase in violent crime and jeff. Monosso fox news. Radio is here with more. They're out there blaming the the the defend the police move and jeff right. Yeah well yeah. They're they're suing the city. They're suing the city's mayor in part blaming the the movements amid explosion in crime and choosing the city of basically failing. It's basic duty to keep people safe and and allowing the city to descend into lawlessness over the past year year to date homicides of more than doubled the lease seeds far fewer. Guns gun thefts are are up more than one hundred percent carjackings up three hundred percent and the men and women blue From the minneapolis. Force the quitting and rose. Nearly two hundred officers have left that department since last year many filing post traumatic stress claims due to the riots that followed george floyd staff One former police officer who quit steve. Dykstra tells fox news departments. Basically become a stand down force where loitering laws are gone. You can't pursue vehicles anymore And that is the last straw for him was when mayor jacob fry ordered police to abandon their pre their police precinct last year and a at the burden told officers ordered officers to take a soft approach on on on criminals. And we're actually seeing that in cities across the country. I mean chicago just Had beta came up with new rules. To limit. Foot chases In in the city and while the democratic controlled city council minneapolis still demand that funding police. The mayor wants more resources now. Forced to effort outside state and federal help. To try and somehow clamp down on crime district judge is expected to issue a ruling on the lawsuit and the plate attorneys say that they believe that. The judge will likely call for more police officers as early as this month. Wow any speculation on Looking for damages or what. They want to be safe. And so i think this this order by the beliefs By by the judge to order More police Is is a win for for them. not so much for people who who want to de-fund police and To minimize the the force in minneapolis and in cities across the country. Let me let's beyond the headlines across the country austin police officer shortage forces downsizing asheville north carolina police no longer responding to some some nine one one calls Understaffed salt lake city. Police department consistently responding to slow to eat -mergency calls those are just a couple of the headline this one from the sun times and chicago. Our kids are becoming extinct chicago. Children being killed by guns far faster rate than years past fifty two children under fifteen shot ten killed so far this year In a list of headlines to go on and on and us It was interesting a judge. I didn't realize a judge had the power to order that. You got to put more police out here you know. But a few they've got to do one of the issues as you know. Jeff is that Even if even if they do it's it's hard to find officers that want to work in that environment now and so they may have to lower the standards and it's just a mess in The officer shortage there. It's so cincinnati. Pd is cutting the time that recruits will spend at the academy that's how desperate cincinnati s And so The you know you look at what's happened across the country and if you have any friends who are police officers. I mean they'll flat out tell you that the job is is is become Almost a unbearable They can't do their job anymore. Because of the risks to themselves their families and their future I mean. I can tell you just just an in illinois Alone they passed a law. Where you know if you're a police i if you if you have a a you know somebody on your front lawn you don't know a potential threat you call police you call nine one one comcan show up. They can write that person as a citation if they take it You can try and give it to them if they take it but they can't you're not they're not order to take it you can't remove them from the property and then you can tell the property owner. I'm sorry both of you. You have a nice day. They can't arrest them. Otherwise the officers would face arrest. So that's what's happening in illinois. Incredible jeff monosso fox news radio.

Since the death of George Floyd, nearly 200 Minneapolis officers have left the force here is what a former Minneapolis police officer named Steve Dykstra told Fox News. It is our featured audio clip this hour. Well, this goes back. Before George Floyd. Sense around 2015. I know the city. Minneapolis has been backpedaling, taking tools away from police to enforce the law and keep the streets safe. I see that George Floyd Advantis Tragic is awas as Kind of a build up of years of backpedaling by the police. When when police don't have any tools to use anymore, they They feel pretty helpless out there. Um, you take away loitering laws. Pursuit ability of pursuit vehicles.

Violence and real curtain crime. 200 officers have left that force since George Floyd's death and in a lot of mother good cops, you know, the good ones are leaving. Well, I understand his point about officers feeling helpless, but You know, you can't excuse what happened? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Nobody's excusing the bad behavior. But the reality is is that officers are leaving. They're not feeling the support another good cops. And then and then we just had the story in Sacramento. They're going another different direction at a time in places like Saint Louis or de funding officers. They're adding more police officers in Sacramento. You know, it seems like which is a good idea to add the police officers and also at the programs to assist the police officers handled the situation, of course, like the mental health issues and that sort of thing. Absolutely. I mean, those those programs where they have combined the two to go out have been successful so far. Well, we wanted to bring you that aspect of the story because much of the reporting yesterday did not. Clued that which is a full as a full picture of the whole story. Exactly. So okay, I'm gonna give you three things. And you tell me what decade there from? Okay. Acid washed jeans, Uh, scratches and Newt Gingrich. Eighties. Close, like late eighties early nineties, right, so new. Gingrich is back on the scene, apparently, and he is sitting down with former president Trump also the Trump's former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and Senator Lindsey Graham.

Remember Newt Gingrich in the contract with America? It turned out to be a wildly successful for Newt Gingrich his political career. They're all sitting down to talk about what a new version of this would look like. That is very interesting. So there especially when we talk about the makeup of the Republican Party and the fight for control, Right, right. I mean math Vitus, still yet to be won by either side is not manifested itself. Yeah, but that is what's going on, apparently behind the scenes. In the Morrow lock that is a brand new development and it's a very interesting one of new contract for America. I wonder what they would call it like two point. Oh, that's what everyone ever nice to call things to point on. All right, they're using that template that OK time now for the top national stories. From ABC News. I'm Sherry Preston, the Manhattan district attorney's office, announcing that a special grand jury has been ceded to decide whether criminal charges are warranted against the Trump Organization. ABC News has learned that witnesses have already been contacted about appearing before the grand jury, which is set to meet three days a week for up to six months. ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl It's the kind of step that a prosecutor takes when they have evidence of a crime. And are preparing to move forward with charges. Of course. Ultimately, it'll be up to that grand jury to decide whether or not those charges are pursued in a statement, the former president calls it a witch hunt being driven by highly partisan prosecutors. At the White House. President Biden and Vice President Harris met with the family of George Floyd on Tuesday, the Police Reform Act named in Floyd's honor, however, it's still stalled in the Senate. Floyd family described this is a really personal meeting with the president and said bite and renewed his promise to push for real reforms. The president had hoped to get this done by yesterday's anniversary of Floyd's murder. Washington obviously missed that moment. But the president is sounding increasingly optimistic, saying he's hopeful that they can now get this done sometime after Memorial Day, maybe see senior White House correspondent Mary Bruce. According to the CDC. Half of all American adults have been fully vaccinated at this point to get more people the shot Brown University's doctor, She's just as companies should help out. We talk a lot about a hesitancy. I think that's the wrong way to think about it For a lot of working class people, it's not easy to take time off. To figure out where to go. So we've got to make it as easy as possible and give people a chance to recover after they've had their vaccine. If they need a day off fish you wanted to get that day off.
