Elmira NY about an hour north of Binghamton. My daughter goes to Suny Binghamton and the Rangers use to have their farm team there. For those who don't know better--we used to have WOR with Bill Chadwick and Jim Gordon back in the 70's. That was channel 7. Wpix--channel 6 carried the Yankees. WOR was good for 30-35 Rangers away games per year. The rest I would try to catch on WNBC radio broadcast with Marv Albert (best hockey announcer ever) and color man Sal Messina. We didn't have Buffalo Sabres anything. The older hockey fans here anyway are mostly Rangers fans. The Sabres fans will tend to be 40 or younger. First time I saw the Rangers in person was in 1982 against the Capitals--we won. By the way ten years ago or so I was playing in a roller hockey league in Corning NY and one of the teams (and they were mostly kids) all had Rangers jerseys.
