Of Course The Pill-Popping Couple Charged With Four Pharmacy Murders Got Engaged At An Islanders Game

Per the New York Daily News, "A pill-popping, gun-loving Army vet and his junkie wife were charged Wednesday night in the cold-blooded massacre of four innocent people at a Long Island pharmacy. David Laffer and Melinda Brady were hauled out of his mother's Medford, L.I., house in handcuffs after heavily armed Suffolk County cops stormed the home."

Now, allow the New York Times to swoop in and nail the sports angle:

Four years ago, [David] and Melinda married at Giorgio's on the North Shore of Long Island, after proposing to her at an Islanders hockey game. His proposal was broadcast on Nassau Coliseum's large television screens.
