The Big 50: New York Rangers is a lively, comprehensive look at the 50 men and moments that made the Rangers the Rangers. Experienced sportswriter Steve Zipay recounts the living history of the team, counting down from No. 50 to No. 1. This collection brilliantly brings to life the team’s remarkable story, from its Original Six roots to stars like Mark Messier and Henrik Lundqvist, to the team’s unforgettable 1994 Stanley Cup win.

Steve’s book is a quick, fun, and exciting read. This was a great trip down memory lane with insights and forgotten nuggets on some of the Rangers greatest moments. From the start, Steve dives right in with Mark Messier and The Guarantee and doesn’t let up. He goes all the way back to 1940 with Bryan Hextall to more present day moments like Marty St. Louis’ Mother’s Day goal.
