(not really sure how to embed a video into a post)
MSG should really consider bringing this back, the song (you can barely call it a song IMO) they use nowadays is real boring

Yeah, that brings back a lot of memories.

It's better than what they use now, for sure.

I personally think this version is better, still listen to it time to time because of its greatness despite the clips mostly being from those dark years.

What year did they stop using the song? I feel like it was around the 06-07 season. Loved the song but it reminds me of the dark years since that's when I grew up watching the Rangers.

I know, but seeing it once just gives me chills. I really enjoyed last year's opening video, but the ones used this year are boring.

wow i was at that home opener vs florida..so much excitement at the garden after the gomez/drury signings. people were ready to pencil us in as EC champions, the rangers actually got booed off the ice following one of the periods (1st or 2nd, cant remember) when we were trailing 2-1..
to think that dubinsky callahan and staal were just breaking into the league, seems like yesterday, its been a real privilege watching these young guys mature and develop, and to only think they've only taken that first step, cant wait to see what the future holds!

I think the intro this year with the inception song is pretty sick. This one from the 07 playoffs is still my favorite though since the lockout. Hard to see but best vid I could find.

It boggles me to this day why they don't go back to the classi theme, It's just too good. Definitely superior to the garbage "intro" we have these days.

The current one is so boring and dull. They're trying to make it sound epic, but it just sounds forced. The old one was classic. Bring it back.

They use the same song for all the NHL teams on MSG.

Not sure, but probably for Red Bulls and Knicks as well. At least they use the same graphic overlays anyway.

Yes, its cookie cutter, and somewhat boring.

But they'll never go back to what they used in the 90's. Forget the name of the group that did the intro song. The intermission song used back then was just as good too.

At least our goal song is original and unique. Best one in the NHL.
