‘Unforgettable’: Author pens books highlighting top Rangers, Devils moments

Posted: Updated:

A local hockey writer has compiled the most memorable games of two NHL teams in a pair of recently published books.

Matthew Blittner said he decided to write the book through the eyes of broadcasters and writers.

He says there was a special anniversary approaching for the Rangers last year, and he got the urge to write a book.

“The Rangers were preparing for their 25th anniversary of the 1994 cup... and it seemed like a perfect time, they hadn't had a book about that team in particular. They had other Rangers books, but they hadn't had that,” he says.

"Unforgettable Rangers - Games and Moments from the Press Box" was completed in time for last February’s celebration.  While there are many accounts of the Rangers’ 1994 title run, memories from other Rangers games are included too.

By September, Blittner had published a second book, "Unforgettable Devils." This book includes Jason Arnott’s double overtime goal to win the 2000 Stanley Cup among other games.

Blittner says his next book may be about the Islanders.
