This is a article for all New York fans, from the Mets fans to the Yankees fans. From the Giants fans to the Jets fans, all New York fans.

New York is the best state in the world, and the New York sports fans deserve a championship now. And we deserve it now, we have been such good fans. It's like David Wright always says "New York Fans are the best fans in the world."

Baseball playoffs are all the way in October, basketball is not really New York's thing. Football  was looking good, but Plax shot himself and the Giants season down the toilet as the Jets and Brett just collapsed. As did the Mets last season and the Yankees were just ugly.

That means that New York only has one sport to go to, hockey. I am not a big hockey fan, but I want New York to win one championship this year.

New York deserves it, these are the best fans in the World. Not only has New York stuck by their Mets as they collapsed for the second year in a row, and not only did the fans still go to Yankee games in the ugly and worse season for them in a long time. We are still Knicks fans! And they have sucked for a long time. That is part of why we deserve to win this year.

And the worst part of it is, that are rivals are doing great. The Phillies won the World Series, the Eagles won the division series game against the Giants. The Red Sox are looking great and the Pats had a great draft this week.

This is painful, why don't we ever get a break?

The Rangers should have been in the next round already, they had a 3-1 game lead of the series. How is it now 3-3? Why cant they close the door on the Capitals?

We need Henrik Lundqvist to keep the net empty, no more goals. We need Scott Gomez and the young Ryan Callahan to get goals and help the others be well on the offence side of the game.

We need to play better defense because no team should give up five goals in any game. We need to stop Viktor Kozlov and Tom Poti from getting any goals. We need John Tortorella to coach us well, losing the last two games was partly due to a bad job by him.

Come on Rangers, we need you to play your best. If you do we know you will win today against the great Washington Capitals. New York needs you, Washington is going down. The same way they went down in baseball this week against the Mets as the Mets won two out of three to win the series.

I think it all depends on Henrik Lundqvist, if he keeps the Capitals down to one goal I think we will win it. Scott Gomez and the young Ryan Callahan should each score at least once. Hope I am right.

Good luck Rangers!
