Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy attended his first New York Rangers’ game at Madison Square Garden last night (not Monday as previously reported) and watched as Chris Drury, BU’s first Hobey winner, delivered his 17th career game-winning goal in post-season play. Rangers edged the Capitals, 2-1. Gilroy was interviewed on MSG Network during the game by ex-Minnesota and NHL defenseman Joe Micheletti.

Earlier in the day, Gilroy was introduced to the New York media and explained three factors in his choice of the Rangers: 1) playing in Madison Square Garden where his father, Frank, played basketball for St. John’s; 2) his admiration for Drury; and, 3) the coaching similarities between the Rangers’ John Torterella and BU’s Jack Parker.
