The pyrotechnics show suddenly taking place at Garden

We spent much of the last 15 years as one of the joke teams in the league, had thousands of old school passionate fans stick with the team, rebuilt, and in the past two weeks or so solidified our return back to respectability with a semifinal berth for the first time since 1997. Over that SAME COUPLE OF WEEKS our original six organization has started to light fireworks off after wins and there's a smoke show after every goal. I'm actually embarrassed a little bit. And the organization that talks about 86 years of pride and tradition should be as well.

It's fun, but I do agree it's a little over the top. Fireworks after a series win I'm ok with. Not every game. The smoke after goals is a little much.

I'm just glad we're complaining about this and not the on-ice performance.

The fans should be lighting off flares and smoke bombs, not the club.

The smoke seemed to annoy the players on the Devils bench...

There were no streamers or fireworks after the game last night. I'll admit a lot of this stuff is over the top but seeing fans of other teams get bent out of shape over it only makes me wish they did even more of it to piss them off.

And the streamers were done as part of a deal with Party City which is why the Knicks had them as well.

Why don't rangers fans bring streamer to the game and throw them in unison after each rangers goal?

Dolan's fingerprints all over it. Hes run such a loser operation between the Rangers and (especially) the Knicks over the years that hes resorting to carnival theatrics.

The Knicks win, after being down 3-0 in the first round, was particularly embarassing.

You would've thought they won the Championship. Unreal

The smoke **** after goals is ridiculous. I'm really not a fan of the confetti and fireworks after a win. A SERIES win, maybe, but not after just any win.

That said, I love how it pisses off opposing fans.

I'm probably in the minority, but I love all the celebrations -- the streamers, smoke, fireworks. It adds to the fun for me.

If you peruse around HFBoards, you'll find pretty much the fans of 29 other teams are mocking this. Meh, I kind of like it as it just gives me another reason to make fun of and loathe the Rangers

I have no problem with it. There were no streamers last night and the smoke after a goal is no more obnoxious than the Capitals awful goal horn that we were all subjected to every time they scored.
Plus if it pisses the Devils off, go for it. lol

I agree that it's stupid, but if it gets to the other team, by all means keep it

Other teams are doing the same thing. The Kings had streamers and smoke during their home games.

I hate it. Makes the team seem arrogant. I really expected better of this organization.

Well, that's the same state that gave us this masterpiece.

If you think streamers and smoke are obnoxious, check that out.

I could see if the Rangers won 82 games without allowing a goal and scoring 500 we'd have to talk about the smoke and such, but right now it shouldn't be an issue.

Will we have time to install them at the Rock as well? Ranger fans deserve the "at home" experience.

Rangers fans need to bring bags of streamers and balloons.
