Only name mentioned between the Penguins, Islanders, Capitals and Rangers was Henrik Lundqvist. Vokoun was referred to as "this new goalie", and nothing else.
He's used to basketball, which has a much greater home advantage, I think.
He's pretty up front with his lack of hockey sophistication. I actually don't get why the NY stations eschew hockey so much. Is the Ranger fan base that much smaller than the Knicks'? Without these blogs I would get very little coverage of my favorite team - and endless talk about Mariano Rivera and Carmelo Anthony. Yawn.
Do they think talking hockey scares listeners away? The ESPN station is the same or worse.
