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.

BC Matthew Ryan Scholarship

 The B. C. Matthew Ryan Memorial Scholarship Fund was founded in memory of Battalion Chief Matthew Ryan, who lost his life on the third floor of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Chief Ryan had 28 years of service with the Fire Department, working 19 of them in Brooklyn. Two of his biggest passions were the FDNY and playing hockey. Therefore, the scholarship was set up as follows below. Applicants must meet both the following criteria:  Must be the daughter or son of an active, retired or deceased (both Line-of-Duty and Non-Line-of-Duty) member of the Fire Department.  The firefighter must be an active, retired or deceased hockey player on the FDNY hockey team, a firehouse team, a town hockey team, a local team or a league team. Two $1,000.00 scholarships are awarded annually and can be used for college/university, high school, trade school or private school. All monies are distributed directly to the appropriate educational facility for credit to the student’s account. The Ryan family along with the committee would like to thank you from the bottom of their hearts for helping to keep his memory alive and the memory of all those lost. The B.C.

Thank you fans and supporters...

Thank you fans and supporters...
Another season has come and gone.  The FDNY Hockey Team would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fans and supporters for making our season such a success. With your help we were able to make a donation to FDNY Fire Family Transport Foundation (http://www.firefamilytransport.org/) to purchase a new van for their fleet. The central focus of the Foundation is assisting the families of firefighters in their times of greatest need, in transporting firefighters, family members and department personnel to and from medical institutions both for care and family support.  After the closing of the Nassau Coliseum, we had to move the game back to New York City to Madison Square Garden for the 43rd Annual FDNY-NYPD Charity Hockey Game. This year’s game saw a sold out crowd of almost 17,000 fans. The FDNY Team fell behind a couple goals early in the first period. Joe Sanger made it 3-1 with 5:57 to go in the first period. Anthony Antenucci and Tom Reno scored in the second period. The NYPD led 6-3 at the beginning of the third period. Chris Princiotta scored halfway through the third to make it 6-4. The FDNY had a 5 on 3 power play with 10:22 left on the clock. Chris Princiotta scored again with 2:22 on remaining in the game. FDNY hit the post with under a minute to play but were unable to tie it up. Even though we outshot the NYPD 51-37 we came up a little short in the 6-5 loss. Chris Princiotta was the FDNY MVP of the game with 2 goals and 1 assist.  A special thanks goes out to our scorekeeper Larry ‘Redlight’ Feilich and team photographer Dennis Whittam. Photos of the game and previous games can be seen at http://www.nyfirephotos.com. The King of the Ice Tournament (www.FDNYkingoftheice.com) moved to Northwell Skating Center at Eisenhower Park. We were able to have 2 rinks going this year and cut the tournament down to 8 days. Thank you to all FDNY members that participated. Congratulations to E-14/E-65 on winning the 21st Annual King of the Ice. The King of the Wheels Tournament was another success heading into its 7th year. Thank you to everyone that came out for it. Over the past months we have received many emails for purchasing team merchandise. We would like to announce that we have partnered up with Sideline Swap (https://sidelineswap.com/FDNYHockey) to sell our team merchandise. We will be selling t-shirts for men, women and kids, sweatshirts, hats and jerseys.  Again, the FDNY Hockey Team would like to thank all our fans and supporters. Without you we wouldn’t be able to make the charitable donations that we do. See you again next year. Tom Reno – General ManagerDerek Kern – ManagerFrank Heal - Secretary
