I will not be at the game tonight, instead choosing to watch the Rangers retire the jerseys of Andy Bathgate and Harry Howell…three jersey retirements in two days, not a bad weekend.
I will post Paul Roper’s press release either late tonight or at some point tomorrow, and will cover the game on Tuesday.
To briefly address something in the comments…to suggest in any, way shape or form that my coverage of this team or any event this team has is in any way biased because of the NHL team I follow is nothing short of ridiculous. This is my seventh year as a sportswriter, and I know how to cover a team in a professional manner…this “job” is no different.
With that said, either the Rangers or Islanders moving their ECHL affiliates closer or the Flyers getting a nearby affiliate could be one of the best things that’s happened to the Trenton Devils franchise.
I will also post my complete thoughts on Scott Bertoli Night on Monday…
