Gil Martin practically grew up around the rivalry between the New York Rangers and New York Islanders. It was his introduction to the sport and some of the best and most intense ice hockey moments he has ever seen. The rivalry brought out the best in the players on both teams and repeated playoff meetings in the 70s and 80s took it up another notch. Such rivalry in professional ice hockey inspired him to write “Ice Wars: The Complete Story of New York's Greatest Modern Sports Rivalry” (published by AuthorHouse).

This book reviews every regular season and playoff game played between the New York Rangers and New York Islanders from 1972-2016. It features extensive postgame quotes from the players and coaches who were there, including more than 50 exclusive interviews from both franchises. Important players from both teams are also profiled.

Hockey fans and especially fans of both teams will love this in-depth history of the rivalry and each season the two teams played in,” Martin says. “It will give them insight into every game played between these teams and the great players who made the rivalry special.”

Through the publication of “Ice Wars,” Martin would like to share with readers the intensity, the history and the joy of the rivalry from the perspective of both the New York Rangers and New York Islanders ice hockey teams and their fans.
