I sit below the bridge in section 212. Noticed that it is much colder and draftier (is that a word?) than past years or maybe I am just getting older. Anyone else notice a big difference?

It's always cooler in the building when it's warmer outside, and we've been having an unseasonably warm fall.

Forgive the ignorance...what's the reasoning for that?

Typically ice needs to be cold

I thought there might be a reason a bit more complicated than that.

Some might argue ice need should be frozen to actually consider it ice.

Trying to balance out the temperature at ice level. On the flip side, the building feels a little warmer on the really cold days, it's just kind of the opposite as the outdoor weather.

The difference in temperature is probably no more than 5 degrees, but there's usually a difference depending on the weather.

Slightly OT, but i'll ask:

Which song has been chosen by the team that is played after the Rangers' Victory Song following each home win this year?

They need to go back to "oh sometimes I get a good feeling".

Sat for the first time on Sunday where there would be limited view of Gardenvision, and was pleasantly surprised by the seats. Sat in section 212 row 20. Even went to the last row where the barstools are and tthy were fine too. Think they did great with the screens on the bridge. Better than the old Gardenvision and the screens are closer than it to boot, better quality. Bridges do cut the building volume down, which is the biggest negative.

Not sure if it's because of the size of the rink being bigger than the court that might lead to GardenVision cutting the view of the ice, but I find it interesting just noticed it after scrolling through my photos

I'm curious, what are Knick crowds like compared to Ranger crowds?
We hear that MSG is much quieter for Ranger games, what about Knick?

I actually don't notice the Rangers crowds being quiet. I do know that a Knicks crowd is very different than a Rangers crowd in that the Knicks fans around me seemed more pessimistic and tends to leave early when they're losing in the 4th quarter, whereas Rangers fans always stay til the end. Also, Rangers fans tend to chant "Let's Go Rangers!" throughout the game, but the "Let's Go Knicks!" chant didn't start until the 4th quarter

That's because basketball games don't start until the 4th quarter. lol

A little off-topic, but does anyone know what was being filmed at MSG tonight? (11/12/2013). The south entrance was lit up, and saw lots of camera equipment outside. http://i.imgur.com/RPlFj0n.jpg Wonder if it was an MSG network filming.

What I never understood was why they don't even play real quarters. I mean seriously, wtf, who's the special needs official that invented four 12 minute periods? Too lazy to play the extra 3 minutes? And don't get me started on the infinite time outs

They were filming a movie starring Liam Neeson.

That's pretty cool.

Upon further Wikipedia research, it looks like it could be A Walk Among the Tombstones.

I'm pretty sure it was called Run All Night. Saw a director's chair with the logo when I was waiting to go in, and google says they're filming in NYC.

They actually wanted people dressed in rangers stuff for extras....I found out about it. The movie is called Up All night and you had to be there at 330 for a 12 hour shift paying 100 bucks....as an extra for rangers game or whatever.

12 minutes is long enough.

Did we lose traction on this? Tragedy of the commons?
