If the Rangers are in town, so is Shelly Silver

If the New York Rangers are in town, it usually means Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is too.

The Manhattan Democrat, an ardent Rangers fan, for years has scheduled a winter fundraiser for his Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee when his favorite team visits for a game against the Buffalo Sabres. It's no different this year, with an event slated for a private box at First Niagara Center during Thursday's contest pitting the Sabres against the visiting Rangers.

And with tickets set at $500 and $1,000, it's a sure bet the speaker won't be totally disappointed if the Sabres pull off a victory.
