Saw the back page of a NY Daily News from 1963. I had forgotten that the Rangers were almost universally referred to in newspapers back then as the "Blues." I'm sure it came from ther blue home sweaters. Wonder if St. Louis had to compensate the Rangers when they joined the league in 1967 for taking the Rangers' nickname?
The Rangers were known more often as "The Broadway Blueshirts".  They were named after The Texas Rangers, because their first owner was from Texas.  No, The St. Louis Blues didn't have to compensate The Rangers.

Yeah, Just joking about the compensation. I think "Blues" was the preferred abbreviation for newspaper headlines as "Broadway Blueshirts" was too long.  interesting that they gave them the "Broadway" moniker because they played on 8th Avenue at the old MSG, not on Broadway. Guess Broadway was near enough.

Boy, the Original Six all had GREAT uniforms. As we've discussed, the Black Hawks sweater is an all-time great but ... fact is, the Habs, Wings, Rangers and Bruins were all great too. Maple Leafs, IMO, a cut below.

And, of the "new" six teams, and all the expansion teams afterwards, The St. Louis Blue Note is, by far, the best.

Deuce--just  too  much about porno--hard to do an hr a week on that.

There was a good  scene  of Candy's  brother in psych ward--  G  building  of Kings Cty, Creedmoor , Bellevue?

The patient  had an accurate  drug induced Parkinsonian tremor.   But  the  realism was  marred by the inaccurate  staff  outfits.  By  the 70s    all white had given way to civilian clothes.
