New York Rangers background
The Rangers always seem to be under the microscope and in the headlines as New York's team. Playing in the largest market in hockey, the Rangers have historically had the budget to acquire superstars, and they have not disappointed. Over the years, hockey's stars such as Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier and Brian Leetch have worn the classic Rangers' jersey. The Rangers have a rivalry with the neighboring New York Islanders. Nothing draws the ire of a Rangers' fan quite like seeing an Islanders' jersey. There are at least 50 players enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame that have played for the Rangers at some point in their career.
The New York Rangers experience
The Rangers play at Madison Square Garden, one of the most famous arenas in sports. Madison Square Garden recently underwent a large renovation to modernize the building. The passion of Rangers' fans is palpable, especially in the "Blue Seats," which are found in the upper reaches of the arena. Madison Square Garden is located right above Penn Station, and the arena is easily reachable from all boroughs of the city.
The Rangers have plenty of their own game traditions. Goals are followed by three blasts of a New York City fire engine horn and a unique "goal song." After Rangers wins, the players gather at center ice and raise their sticks in the air.
The history of the New York Rangers
The Rangers began play in 1926, which was the beginning of the NHL. The Rangers were successful in their early years but soon experienced a long title drought. The Rangers broke that streak in 1994 by winning the Stanley Cup. Stephane Matteau authored perhaps the greatest moment in franchise history when he scored the winner in double overtime of the deciding game in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Rangers then went on to defeat the Vancouver Canucks. After a period of struggle, the Rangers have been a regular playoff participant this decade as goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been a longtime stalwart in the nets.
