NY Rangers 4 LA Kings 1 at Madison Square Garden


According to my records, I last attended a Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden in January 2006.  For several years when I worked at NJIT in Newark, I would meet Karen and Lee at the Prudential Center to see the New Jersey Devils.  The ticket price was quite high at $160, so I must limit my visits to the Garden.

The Rangers won 4-1 with goalie Jonathan Quick making 25 saves against his former team.  Most of the fans were young adults in their 20s or 30s who were quite enthusiastic about their team.  Many of the fans shown on the video screen were under 12 years old.  I assume their parents forked over the big bucks for their tickets.

I must make one negative comment about the evening.  Pictures of celebrities are shown during breaks in the action.  A large cheer erupted when former boxer Mike Tyson was shown.  I gave him a big boo and a thumbs down as he served jail time for rape. He abused many women in his life.  It is sad sometimes when athletes are admired when their personal lives leave something to be desired.
