GIANTS' PLAYERS CATCH PLAYOFF HOCKEY FEVER
BY MATT COHEN
It’s a great time right now to be a New York sports fan.
The Giants have returned for offseason workouts, the Yankees and Mets are playing baseball again, and the New York Rangers are in the middle of a competitive opening round series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Several Giants, both current and former, have caught playoff hockey fever. On Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, linebacker Jonathan Casillas and defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison were in the building to see the Blueshirts defeat the Montreal Canadiens, 2-1, to even up the series at two games apiece.
Giants’ Ring of Honor member Justin Tuck was also in the building to cheer on the Rangers. Tuck has been a huge hockey fan ever since his earliest playing days with Big Blue.
Offensive guard Justin Pugh is a big Rangers fan, as well, and attends his fair share of hockey games at The Garden. Pugh made sure he was at the game last night, and after the win, he offered up his congratulations on social media.
Check out some of what the Giants were posting on social media during Tuesday night’s game, and standby to see if they return on Thursday for Game 5. Maybe they’ll bring a few more of the guys along with them.
Every time the players sub out I jump up in my seat thinking a fight is about to break out #MyFirstHockeyGame— Damon Harrison (@BigDame900) April 19, 2017
