With the 3 area teams making the playoffs and some exciting playoff games for all 3, I don't think I remember hockey being more on the forefront of the area sports scene since the Rangers won the Stanley Cup.

People were actually talking about it on WFAN and the newcpaper and TV coverage was pretty good.

Now, with the Devils and Rangers both going out in less than 24 hours, it will be hard to find the rest of the playoffs anywhere except the agate and maybe a couple of roundup paragraphs in the area papers.

Too bad.

this was a great year for NY Hockey, I think it will also set things up nicely for next year, slow attendance from the Isles should be up after a playoff run and hopefully a good offseason, the Devs are getting a new arena and the Rangers popularity will only go up after back-to-back playoffs.

BTW although not many Ranger or Islander fans will be rooting for them there is technically one more NY Hockey team playing

I don't have a problem rooting for Buffalo, although they'll have their hands full with Ottawa. It should be a great EC Finals.

I am rooting for Buffalo... being a Bills fan I feel as though I have some sort of unwritten allegiance I have to abide by towards the city and their fans...

with that said I think Ottawa is winning the cup... they remind me too much of the Canes last year,

Sens in a not-so-close 6-game series.
