I have noticed that every local sports station (news or radio) pumps up every sport besides hockey except in 1-3 cities. In Colorado, they're pumping up the Rockies every chance they get including the weather report and they're going to suck this year (my friends tell me that, I don't personally watch baseball). On the radio it's Broncos 99% of the time, even in the offseason with Nuggets and Rockies with other .9%, Avs with .1% and consider Avalanche are the most winning-est franchise in Colorado sports history. Also the regular sportscasters on the radio are only football or basketball fans. They have to bring in an outside source like Adrian Dater to talk about hockey, which is pathetic. I think there could be a anti-hockey agenda on local sports stations.
The Rangers didn't beat out the Knicks. The Knicks game was available on MSG and on ESPN in NY. If you combine the two, they beat the Rangers.
