Thanks for all the responses and I'm glad I asked. I'm usually really tuned into the game and don't even chant or anything like that at our own games (that's partly because they like to chant "Let's go Duh-ucks!" when it's a two syllable chant. Drives me nuts). But I do celebrate goals vigorously so I'm glad you warned me. So I might jump up and cheer a goal but trust me I won't be one of those guys who turns around and is all "Yeah my team scored who sucks now?" kind of fans. I find them very annoying. Oh and I'm sure we'll be quaked at, visiting fans do that at the Pond as it is.

I'll be in section 317 wearing a black Chris Kunitz jersey (If I had a Charlie Conway jersey I'd totally wear it) and if want to be surprised at how much hockey knowledge a kid from So Cal can posses by all means hit me up. I just go on about how Game 6 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals may have been one of the best games I've ever seen. Game 7 wasn't too bad either.

Thanks again for all your input and let me also mention how much I hate the Devils. 2003 stills hurts.

The EC finals of 94 may be the best 7 game series in history!

To echo the rest of the statements, as long as you aren't going overboard you will be just fine. Getting up and cheering goals is fine, but anything more than that is a bit of a stretch. At the same time, I think alot of Rangers fans are cool towards visiting fans, so you will enjoy the trip here.

I actually think alot of western fans have been some of the best fans at MSG. The only problems seem to be from teams like the Isles, Devils, Flyers, Pens, ect.

My question is how are visiting fans of non-rival teams treated? My only experiences with being at road games have been less than pleasant but they were against the Kings and Coyotes. The Rangers are probably my favorite Eastern team and I hope we aren't met with hostility.

Thanks in advance and way to go for the great start to your season.

I love these threads..........

Most likely you will catch a severe beating and left for dead by the cab stand on 8th ave. If I were you I'd come heavy or don't come at all.

You'll be ok. We only beat up Islanders and Flyers fans.

300s Average American and great fans. You're in their house and treat it with respect. A Duck's Jersey is okay, but don't get too loud, especially if the Rangers are losing.

400s Don't wear your Ducks jersey, don't celebrate a goal unless it's NY, and don't mess with the drunk guys on the rail, they'll throw you off. It'll take a while for security to get to you and you get in trouble.

I like the description. rather accurate.

Just got back from the game and despite the outcome we had a great time. We weren't hassled once. In fact we were pretty much ignored which work fine for us. There weren't even any vocal snide comments about the Ducks. That surprised me. Visiting fans tend to do that a lot at the Pond.

But let me say that was the best hockey crowd I've been in, hands down. You guys actually know hockey and know what's going on. The crowd was chanting and into it. It was awesome. Makes me want to come back so I can root for the Blueshirts and get into myself.

Good game tonight. You guys have a very good team and an awesome building.

When I went to the Garden in late December I noticed how much louder it was then the buildings out here. It's louder when the Rangers cleared the puck on a penalty kill then any point at the Staples Center. Kinda stinks that we don't have that passion out here.

I can honestly say I am shocked to hear that haha. I have been to more than a few Rangers games where our fans have been a little unnecessarily hostile (and not against the Isles, Devils etc., because I couldn't care less about them), but against teams like Ottawa, Atlanta, and some other non-rivals. Anyway, just glad to hear you had a good time. Always nice to hear that your fanbase is knowledgeable too (which is also something I am a little surprised to hear haha).

Glad you had a good time, dude. Come again and see us. It's okay, you can become one of us. We won't tell Wildwing.

But in all seriousness, your arena may not be crazy, but at least you have Ryan, Getzlaf and Perry.

Why would you be hassled?If you rooted for the Flyers or the Devils,then that is a different story

For our hospitality, you need to give us Ryan Getzlaf.

This is so overblown it's not even funny. There is no difference between the 400s and the 300s at all. If anything, there are more "real" fans (think longtime season ticket holders, really passionate, knowledgeable) up there than anywhere else. It is the farthest thing from scary or unsafe, unless you're being a complete and utter *******.

I bet the 70's and 80's were fun times up there.
