Take a moment to remember and appreciate those who sacrificed so much for all of us. I can’t even imagine what so many of our veterans and active-duty soldiers have gone through.

I know, the finals are great but you guys need Rangers.
OK, here’s some. MSG Network’s series “MSG Countdown” which debuted last week, tomorrow night at 8 p.m. offers “Rangers Fights, Brawls and Melees.”
I have seen the video and it’s pretty good. I would have included a few others in place of, for example, P.J. Stock beating up Mariusz Czerkawski, or Joe Paterson (as a Ranger) fighting Nick Fotiu (as a Flyer). I would have included Joey Kocur vs. Bob Probert; the Rangers-Flyers preseason brawl of 1985; some “best of” Barry Beck or Eddie Johnstone; the tag-teamer against Washington in the playoffs, where Mark Hardy beat up Geoff Courtnall and Kris King outslugged Nick Kypreos at center ice, Clark Gillies-Eddie Hospodar; George McPhee-Dave Brown (they had a McPhee-Rick Tocchet punchout, but not the one from the ‘86 playoffs); Fotiu-Holmgren or Fotiu (as a Ranger)-anybody, etc.
But what they came up with was a pretty good sampling. Definitely worth a watch.
