This is false. Devils play 8 miles away from Manhattan. 1 train stop away from MSG. 10 min car ride.

The papers surely include the Devils, they just cover the Rangers slightly more because they have been around longer and have more fans. But believe me, when the Rangers do poorly & the Devils play well, the Rangers are quickly forgotten, like those 8 or so years they missed the playoffs.

Contrary to popular belief the Devils have a decent amount of fans. It's great they missed the playoffs last year because the NYC area took the excellence of the Devils for granted. Now people are really showing up, and it's it's great for the franchise.
