Do they even proofread anymore?
I’m sure the writers meant Boston, Buffalo, Philadelphia, PITTSBURGH, Washington and all three New York teams—with those last three teams being the ones in the NY metropolitan area, which are the Rangers, Islanders and NEW JERSEY.
Or, at the very least, the three NY teams might be the Rangers, Islanders and BUFFALO—if the writers are referring to teams by state specifically. In either case, they left out Pittsburgh and mentioned Buffalo and New Jersey separately. If I were a Penguins fan—and I’m not—I’d be upset about the omission.
Doesn’t anyone proofread anymore? After all, the credits reference one ESPN writer and the AP.
