Rangers Refuse Press Box Admittance to Toronto Radio Station

According to William Houston of CTVGlobemedia in Canada, the Rangers have denied Fan 590 reporter Howard Berger access into the Madison Square Garden press box for Thursday's Toronto Maple Leafs-Rangers game...

"The New York Rangers have refused to admit Fan 590 reporter Howard Berger into the Madison Square Garden press box for Thursday's Toronto Maple Leafs-Rangers game. This week, Berger apologized on the air for reporting that Rangers forward Sean Avery needled Leafs winger Jason Blake about his fighting cancer. Berger and The Fan addressed the problem. There's no reason for the Rangers to bar him from the box."

However, Sam Weinman at New York Journal is reporting that the Rangers are denying this report...

"...Berger himself will be back in New York to cover the game, and the Rangers are denying this report that says they are refusing the reporter admission into the press box. The team says Berger might not get a seat in the lower press box, but that, they say, is a numbers issue because there are only a select number of seats...."

...I wish the Rangers did deny this guy and the entire station any access to Madison Square Garden. This guy Berger goes out of his way to slander Avery and thinks he should be able to mosey on into MSG without any repercussions. I don't care that he apologized. Keep him out.
