Leading Up To Glen Sather Night In Edmonton

from John Shannon of Sportsnet,

It’s just over 3,200 kilometres from Rexall Place to Madison Square Garden.

Different country and certainly a very different city.

At first blush, there appears to be little in common between the capital of Alberta and the business capital of the world.

Except there is this hockey thing. A love of puck for a hardcore group of fans. Rabid Rangers pride and loyal Oilers faithful, these fans are as passionate and vocal as any. The Oilers have won five Stanley Cups, the Rangers four.

Another real bond exists between these clubs that has left a lasting impression on both NHL franchises for over 50 years: Glen Sather.

The longtime coach, general manager and executive will be honoured by the Oilers with a banner raising at Rexall Place on Friday ahead of Edmonton's game against the Rangers.
