A few lucky families were surprised with a special gift from the Islanders ahead of Game 4 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Five Long Island kids and their families were given tickets to Sunday's game, and they were greeted by Islanders owner Jon Ledecky at their doors.
All five families have one thing in common - each is supporting a loved one battling cancer.
"It feels great to just get away from it for a while. To just put everything to the side and just focus on trying to be normal. It feels great to do that," said Vincent Cusimano, Islanders fan and 11-year-old cancer fighter.
Vincent has been to several Islanders games this season, and each time he has gone, they've won. He hopes that streak will continue on Sunday.
Massapequa resident Kevin Scheinkopf’s 10-year-old son Jordan has endured a difficult few weeks since being diagnosed with cancer.
“It started in February. It's a long road, but he's going to get better,” he said.
Scheinkopf was overwhelmed when he heard the news about the surprise tickets.
“Doing this for my son. It's unbelievable,” he said.
