Anthony Reiber at Newsday reports on the relationship between Rangers players and Mets pitching phenom Matt Harvey... "The Connecticut native and new Manhattan resident is keeping an eye on the NHL's Eastern Conference, where his beloved Rangers are fighting for playoff spots with the Islanders and other teams. Harvey is friendly with many Rangers, including fellow New Englander Brian Boyle and star goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Harvey has gone out for meals with the hockey players and they follow what he is doing for the Mets -- which is pitching very, very well in his first two starts (2-0, 0.64 ERA)." Here's Harvey on the Rangers... "I grew up a Rangers fan," Harvey said. "I've always been really into hockey. It was a lot of fun. Those guys more than welcomed me. Hopefully, when we get back, I'll be able to check out a game or two. Hopefully, they'll make a run and try and sneak into the playoffs." ...as if I didn't love Harvey enough already. Can you say man crush? ...it doesn't surprise me when sports teams in the same city cross over like this. I'm sure the athletes have plenty in commmon, including the pressures of playing in New York, expectations and everything else that goes along with being a professional. ...let's just hope that Harvey will be able to continue rooting on the Rangers in the playoffs the way Justin Tuck of the New York Giants did last season.
