How did you first become a NYR fan?

As an old-timer, my story is different than most here.
When I was about 10, I happened upon a hockey game on Channel 9 on a Saturday night. I was fascinated by it. Every Saturday I would watch another game. At that time there were only 6 teams, so I got to know every roster very quickly.
For a month or two, I was a Montreal fan, because they were amazing to watch. Seeing guys like Beliveau made me understand the beauty and skill of the game.
Soon, because I saw the Rangers every week, my allegiance switched to the home team, and it was a player by the name of Phil Goyette (the closest thing we had to Beliveau) who made me appreciate that hockey had a quality about it that I had never seen before, or since.
Thank you, Phil Goyette, for making me understand that hockey could stir me like no other sport can.
