The doesn't protect you. It is annoying. When MSG repeats the same thing over and over, it gets a bit annoying. Say it once, fine. But to dedicate the whole pre-game show to it and to have it mentioned by Sam and Joe throughout the game gets annoying. It's a Rangers vs Lightning game, not an ex-Lightning vs Lightning game.
