    I really enjoy the way these two cohosts play off of each other. They do a great job of giving their listeners an overview of the big things going on in the NHL. And then do an even better job of breaking down the new York Rangers and new York Islanders. The fact Did they both route for the other team makes their back-and-forth that much more enjoyable.
