This book is a tribute to the rivalry the New York Rangers had with the Boston Bruins during the decade that Emile Francis ran the club. Growing up, these two teams are what defined hockey for me and the team was not simply a city or a sweater or a jersey, it was the players. As Mr. Francis himself told me, qEvery time we played it was a war. That was the greatest rivalry I've ever seen.q I wrote this book for the fans of both teams, hoping that it would bring back some great memories from a time when the game was a lot different than it is today.It was just something that wasna#39;t right when you came in there for a game, aquot; Thata#39;s a good point, I hadna#39;t thought of that. ... and kinda was bothering him, wea#39;d kinda go in and protect him and if I had to take a penalty versus Bobby, who would you rather have out on the ice? ... If you do it by playing the trap or playing defense the whole season, ita#39;s what the results are at the end of the year on how you won.
