Interview with Author and Hockey Writer Alan Bass

Alan Bass and I have known each other since 2007, when we both started writing for a sports website called Bleacher Report. We quickly became friends, though the relationship was, and still is, a severe case of love-hate, considering he is a die-hard fan of the Philadelphia Flyers, while I root for the New York…

Site News: Upcoming Interviews

Even though the Rangers lost to the Flyers this afternoon, I still have some very good news to report on to all my readers here at FNYTSF.

Movie Review: The Hanoi HiltonĀ (1987)

For a movie that tackled such an important part of America’s struggle with Vietnam, it is quite surprising at how few people have seen this movie. The Hanoi Hilton was released in 1987, right on the tail end of a decade that saw the release of several Vietnam movies. Perhaps the American people just had…

Flyers Send Rangers Packing in Pressure Filled Final Game

Aside from the fourth line, the New York Rangers should be embarrassed for not being able to defeat the Flyers in a game in which Henrik Lundqvist played his best game of the season and made 46 saves. They were outplayed and outmatched from beginning to end, and could not overcome the massive amount of…

Rangers and Flyers: Epic Showdown Will Decide Playoffs

This is going to be a very short post, mainly because, what is there to say? Win, and their in. Lose, and their done. Today’s game between the Rangers and Flyers will probably go down as the most epic regular season game in history, because very rarely does a shot at making the playoffs come…

Rangers Defeat Flyers; Set Up Epic Sunday Afternoon Showdown

One win in regulation, and they would tie the Flyers in the standings and make Sunday’s game a do-or-die for both teams. The Rangers…

Semper Fi- Do or Die: Rangers Must Win to Stay Alive

Rangers Play A-very Good Game in Win Over Flyers

The fans at MSG chanted Sean Avery’s name this afternoon as his two goals helped propel the Rangers to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Old time hockey made it’s long-awaited return to a Rangers’ game as the tilt was chippy from start to finish. The Rangers fell behind early when Danny Briere scored…

Rangers Need to Show Nasty Edge in Game Vs. Flyers

I know I said I was going to take a week-long hiatus from writing hockey, but just like battered-wife syndrome, I keep coming back for more. The occasion is up to par though; can’t beat a Rangers/Flyers afternoon game with so much on the line. The Rangers need this game much more than the Flyers,…
