The NHL Gets It Right

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

So there is another one of these coming up on Wednesday night, another chance for the Rangers to turn Yankee Stadium into the Bronx Blue against the Islanders the way they did against the Devils on Sunday afternoon.

And when Derek Stepan, who put the cherry on top of the Blueshirts’ 7-3 victory by converting a third-period penalty shot, was asked if the philosophy of going outside in another couple of days would be, “We’ve got to do it again,” or, “We get to do it again,” the center responded affirmatively and enthusiastically.

“Oh,” Stepan said. “We get to do it again.”

Again and again the NHL stages these outdoor extravaganzas and again and again the league pulls it off. One after another, from Edmonton in 2003 to Los Angeles this past Saturday night, they have become a collective greeting card for hockey’s Winter Wonderland.

Too many of these? Bah.

Only in the NHL can two games played on the island of Manhattan, 7 miles from Madison Square Garden, be considered “road” games for the New York Rangers.
