You've probably heard by now that our very own New York Rangers have made it into the Stanley Cup finals (if not, we're happy to be the ones to break the news, but you really should get out more). Yes, the Blueshirts have defied most expectations by handily smiting the Montreal Canadiens last week in six games. In the finals, they'll be taking on the formidable L.A. Kings in a best-of-seven series that starts Wednesday, June 4 at 8pm in Los Angeles. Unless you plan on shelling out $2,000-plus for a ticket (plus airfare), you'll be stuck watching the game on TV. Might as well make it a huge TV: Bryant Park will be showing the game live on a massive outdoor screen.
Leading up to the action they'll also host free ice-skating, appearances by former Rangers and a stunt plane skywriting over the event (something about Henrik Lundqvist's pirouetting blocker saves, please).
If you needed any ammo for your L.A. jeers, besides the obvious absurdity of playing hockey in a place where the temperature hovers in the 60s year-round, consult our list of reasons why New York kicks L.A.'s ass.
