Recently I was given the privilege of reviewing the book Battle On The Hudson: The Devils, The Rangers, And The NHL’s Greatest Series Ever. The book –written by Tim Sullivan with a foreword from Stephane Matteau– takes an in-depth dive into the rise of the Devils and the Rangers in the early 90s, and how those two teams wound up meeting in the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals. It also dives into each game, and how momentum was able to change so quickly.
The foreword from Matteau documents his feelings when he was traded to the Rangers, and how that feeling changed right as he arrived. He also goes into the locker room and describes the feelings of the club heading into Game Six.
