Check out the top tweets from New York Rangers broadcaster Sam Rosen’s birthday.
Since 1984, Sam Rosen has been the play-by-play voice for the New York Rangers. That’s quite a feat for a sportscaster and one who’s been doing it on one of the biggest stages in all professional sports in the City that Never Sleeps.
The life-long Rangers fan and broadcaster is most famous for his on-air calls from New York’s memorable run to the 1994 Stanley Cup Final, while the Broadway Blueshirts also took down the New Jersey Devils in a Game 7 during the Eastern Conference Finals.
Rosen turned 71 on Sunday, Aug. 12, and Rangers’ twitter celebrated the legends birthday in commendable fashion.
ESNY recognizes the top tweets from Rosen’s birthday.
The Rangers official Twitter account posted this awesome and nostalgic photo from after the team won its’ fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history back in 1994. It also appears that Rosen has some champagne on his grey suit from celebrating afterward in New York’s locker room at Madison Square Garden.
Happy Birthday Sam!
We know you will celebrate it right! pic.twitter.com/HEHbH9L08L

While opposing fans can’t stand the slogan, Rosen’s staple is “it’s a power-play goal” over the MSG networks. But this photo displays some serious dedication to the Broadway Blue shirts and the sport.
