It’s not hockey, but the Super Bowl is always a premier event for just about any sports fan - and that includes a number of the New York Rangers themselves.
Specifically, the Pats fans. The Rangers have quite the contingent of kids from Massachusetts - Chris Kreider, Kevin Hayes, Jimmy Vesey - who no doubt had wild nights and probably some intense mood swings during the biggest football game of the year.
If you follow any of the Rangers themselves on Twitter, then you probably saw quite the string of tweets some very happy New England fans:
Fun match. Who ended up winning?— Chris Kreider (@ChrisKreider) February 6, 2017
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA— Kevin Hayes (@KevinPHayes12) February 6, 2017
Wow.— Jimmy Vesey (@19Vesey) February 6, 2017
And then... there was Mika Zibanejad. Poor, poor Mika Zibanejad.
Empty— Mika Zibanejad (@MikaZibanejad) February 6, 2017
Because Zibanejad is, like, a legit Falcons fan.
Man - hopefully his New England teammates are at least being nice to him today.
