Stanley Cup prediction: Rangers in 6
Lifetime New Yorker and DSN editor in chief Rob Eder took his second Mark Messier sighting in two days during the Stanley Cup finals as a positive omen: "Rangers in 6," says DSN’s supreme content creator. Eder spotted the former New York Rangers Captain at the corner of 57th Street and Lexington Avenue, Thursday afternoon, as he went for lunch.
