VGK has renewed my interest in the NHL. Growing up in NYC, the Rangers were my choice. Back then you could get into the old MSG for around $1.50 when you showed your student ID. The Montreal Canadians were always sold out, but you could easily get into the Garden when the other four teams were visiting. Yep, only 6 teams in the league back then. But then I moved to Long Island and it was now the Islanders for me! Guess I got lucky and was there during their heyday, when they won 4 Stanley Cups in a row (1980 - 1983). Getting back to today, I'm a big VGK fan. Have gone to a few games and watch all the rest on TV. Yesterday I made a small wager on the St. Louis Blues (+135) over the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup. The Blues have gone from "worst to first" in the second half of the season, so I'll stay with the hot team.
