Francesa hates the Rangers because back in the day he used to have a late night show that fell after Rangers games when they played. Naturally fans would want to know about hockey a lot and he didn't know anything. So after a few years of the crappy show he finally got fired and since then he hates the Rangers.
In 1990, Francesa began hosting a talk show following Knicks and Rangers games at Madison Square Garden called Live from the Play By Play. The Play By Play is a restaurant in Madison Square Garden. The show featured sports and entertainment figures in a "late night" talk style program. The show did not last past 1995, but was revived for one year in 2005 as a post-game show for Knicks home games. WEPN's Brandon Tierney was the host.
There's probably more to it, but that's all the info I could find about the show.
