NEW YORK (WFAN) — Rangers forward Martin St. Louis is finally comfortable in New York, just in time for his introduction to one of the fiercest rivalries in the NHL.
St. Louis has played a grand total of 18 minutes against the Philadelphia Flyers since being traded to the Blueshirts last month. The former Tampa Bay Lightning captain will see a whole lot more of them when the Rangers and Flyers drop the puck on their opening round playoff series Thursday night.
“Obviously everybody is pretty excited about getting this on the way,” St. Louis told WFAN radio’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “I’m new to this, but I’ve seen the rivalry from a distance between the two teams, so I’m excited to be in the middle of it.”
