SportsNation Blog Archives New York Rangers
On Friday night the Tampa Bay Lightning-New York Rangers series came to a culmination in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden. Needless to say, tickets were going for a pretty penny. To be rinkside? That was really going to cost you.
Good thing one super-chill bro was willing to dish out the cash necessary to get a coveted front-row seat and give this entertaining interview:
His reasoning for throwing out hundreds like candy is very sound:
"Benjamin Franklin is killin' the game!"
He was also unfazed when asked whether he knew tickets were going for as much as $19,200, and that he could have turned quite a profit:
"Yeah I know, that would have been cool, but you know what? I gotta see the Rangers win. I could have blown all that money on water. I don't really drink alcohol. It's cool."
It's cool, bro. Everything's cool.
If only the Rangers had won and we could watch the chillest bro in the game flash his bling rinkside for another series. Oh well, it's cool.

Three Game 7s in the NHL
Tonight's going to be an exciting night for hockey fans, as three of the Stanley Cup playoff series will drop the puck on their respective Game 7s. Wayne Simmonds' hat trick last night helped the Flyers force a deciding Game 7 against the Rangers, the Sharks face an interesting goaltending decision in their decisive matchup against the Kings, and the Avalanche will try to come back after a disastrous third period against the Wild in their Game 6. It's often been said that the NHL has the most intense playoff series in all of sports, and tonight's slate of games will likely show why that's true.
