It’s a Power Play Birthday For Sam Rosen
Tuesday was NY Ranger Play-by-play voice Sam Rosen’s birthday. Sam has been the MSG TV “voice” of the Broadway Blueshirts for the past 30 years, after taking over for Jim Gordon.
“It’s a Power Play Goal”, has become one of his signature calls, whenever the Rangers score with a man advantage. He has been nothing but professional over these last 30 years, working with various color analysts, such as Hall of Famer and former superstar Phil Esposito, former Ranger goalie and current President of the Columbus Blue Jackets, John Davidson and current analyst Joe Michaletti.
His call at the end of Game 7 in 1994, as the Rangers won their first Cup since 1940 was incredible and it will last a lifetime.
I happened to meet Sam Rosen this past post season an Hockey House and he was gracious and engaging. Not only did he sign an autograph for me, he chatted for a bit and posed for a picture with me.
Sam, Happy Birthday and here is to 30 more years as the “voice” of the Rangers.
