Started following hockey and the Rangers towards the end of the 71-72 season. As it happens the first game I listened to on the radio was a game against the California Golden Seals and it was the night that Jean Ratelle who was neck and neck with Phil Esposito (Bruins) broke his ankle in a collision I believe with the Seals forward Bill Hicke. Rangers completely destroyed the Seals that night. For the first several seasons the bulk of games I followed on the radio--Marv Albert and Sal Messina a better team by quite a distance than the television duo of Jim Gordon and Bill Chadwick.

BTW this is my 40th year as a Rangers fan.
