Broadway Blueshirts, the King of New York

Post contributed by Patricia Singleton

I love hockey, but somehow I love the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League even more. They have a rich history, as they were founded in 1926 and have had a number of great players and great teams since then. They haven't won too many Stanley Cups, but when they do win, like 1994, it's sweet.

I love sitting back on my couch, watching the Rangers on my BestChoiceTV, and enjoying my team as they fight for victory. They are led by their goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist, who is one of the top goalies in the game today. Their star forward is Marian Gaborik, a speedy sniper who can bring the fans out of their seats with a simple rush. The team has some established veteran talent, but also has young, up and coming players leading the way. Guys like Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky, and Artem Anisimov at forward, Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, and Michael Del Zotto on D, and other players in the Rangers system certainly point to the Rangers having a bright future.

Their coach is John Tortorella, a firebrand who made his reputation as the coach of the championship winning Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004. His style of hockey is fast, aggressive, and exciting, making watching every Rangers game a treat, because you never know what to expect next out of the team.
