It always seems like we don't have in PHI many fans but do in BOS, was this the case then?
Like I said before, I was at the game back in november and it seriously felt like almost half of the arena were Ranger fans. It might have only been 40% tops, but from the sound of things, it was significantly more than saturday's game.
I'm sure an overwhelming majority of Ranger fans at Caps games are just transplanted New Yorkers like myself, I don't really see people making that kind of road trip in a 82 game season, but I have heard of some.
My friend from back home took the train down here for november's game, but I wasn't able to get him to do the same for last weekend. I can't even find anyone to meet me in Philly for a weekend game. Either people don't care enough or I just have really lazy friends.
