Another nice moment, courtesy of the Rangers

I’ve told you guys, and most of you know, that the Rangers may only win one Stanley Cup in our lifetimes, or none, in some cases. But that in terms of doing good deeds, they’re perennial champs. [1]

Yesterday before the prospects camp scrimmage, they brought out Liam Traynor of Blauvelt, a wheelchair-bound kid who pretty much joined the Rangers family via the Garden of Dreams Foundation [2].

And Liam, a sled-hockey player, dropped the puck for the ceremonial start of the scrimmage, as all the players and coaches gave him an ovation.

“Oh, that is … that’s a nice family,” Rangers coach John Tortorella said later. “It’s a family I’ve grown close to. And then, how the boys reacted … the thing with that stuff, that’s a minute or two out of the players’ time. That’s a lifetime experience for a kid like that and his family. So it was terrific. It was a lot of fun. A lot of fun.”

Liam stayed and watched the scrimmages with Tortorella and Adam Graves and others.
