Here's a sneak peek at the upcoming 2009 release The Rangers, the Bruins, and the End of an Era by Jay Moran
Cities have rivalries. Nothing grows the metropolitan antagonism as much as professional sports.
Few cities have as big and as deep rooted Boston and New York. The Giants and Patriots. The Knicks and the Celtics. And there's a little baseball rivalry you may have heard about - the Yankees and the Red Sox.
Let's not forget about hockey. The Bruins and the Rangers have fed into the tale of two cities nicely. Never more so than during the Emile Francis era in New York, 1965 through 1975.
