On Thursday night, the  Rangers and their fans paid tribute to one of the greatest players the team has ever known.

Prior to the Rangers' game vs. the Atlanta Thrashers, Brian Leetch Night, presented by American Express, honored only the fifth former Rangers player to see his uniform number hoisted to the rafters at Madison Square Garden, where he joined fellow legends Rod Gilbert, Ed Giacomin, and his 1994 Stanley Cup championship teammates Mike Richter and Mark Messier.
