Rangers: a little love in the morning

It was very good to hear some actual hockey talk on the radio this morning.

(Especially good when compared to the Football talk - which was all bad news today after our local teams forgot to show up this past Sunday)

Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason talked New York Rangers for about a minute. Not great but much better than nothing.

First they talked about Brad Richards' remarkable game winning goal with 0.1 seconds left on the clock. That is worth talking about - it was something we may never witness again for the rest of our lives - a game winner that crosses the line - not at the last possible second - but much later than that.

And then, Boomer said exactly what we've all been thinking. That the Rangers are clearly missing something without Sean Avery. You can call it "drive" or "jam" or energy or competitive spirit. But without Ave's the Rangers just don't have it. And John Tortorella just doesn't get it. Unless he gets Sean.

So a big shout out to Boomer (or "Booms" as Craigy like to call him) on saying exactly what so many of us are feeling - on the air - and straight to the point. It's great to know you love Aves as much as we do. Keep up the good work Booms - you're doing us all a solid - and we'll be listening.

Because it's great to get a little love in the morning.
