In Game of My Life: New York Rangers, John Halligan and John Kreiser share the recollections of 24 of the most famous names in Rangers history as they discuss the most memorable games in their careers. Boucher describes the Rangers’ first game; Clint Smith remembers what it was like to win the Stanley Cup in 1940; Mark Messier and the stars of the 1994 team share their memories of the games that ended the 54-year Cup drought; Wayne Gretzky talks about his final NHL game; and Jagr describes his feelings about setting team scoring records. Rangers fans will also enjoy descriptions of some of the most famous goals in team history by the players who scored them: Don Raleigh’s two overtime winners in the 1950 Finals; Pete Stemkowski’s triple-overtime tally in 1971; and Stephane Matteau’s famous series-winner in 1994.
It’s the best kind of anecdotal history, in which the people who made history are the ones doing the telling. Game of My Life takes readers inside the mind of each player and behind the doors of the locker room to reveal what really happened, and how it affected the people who were involved in some of the most memorable moments in New York hockey history.
All of the famous tales about the New York Rangers (including Lester Patrick in goal; the 1940 Stanley Cup; Rod Gilbert's first big game; Mark Messier's "guaranteed" win; the 1994 Cup-winning heroics of Brian Leetch and Mike Richter, and Wayne Gretzky's goodbye to the NHL) are referenced here. Stories from 24 New York hockey legends take fans inside the Rangers locker room and inside the heads of the players themselves. It is an anecdotal history of the biggest games in the history of the New York Rangers, one of the most popular teams to ever play on Broadway.
