Newark Mayor On New York Rangers' Title Chances: 'You Must Be Pretty High If You Believe That'

If the New York Rangers can finish off the Washington Capitals to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, they will meet the New Jersey Devils for the right to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. Trash talk for the series that might never happen has already begun, courtesy of an unlikely source.

Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, was asked Tuesday on Twitter whether he felt the New York Rangers would win the Stanley Cup title.

"Call the FAA because u must be pretty high if you believe that," he responded.

The first shot has been fired, and it includes a drug reference from a New Jersey mayor.

Let's hope the Rangers can handle the Capitals, because Rangers-Devils has the potential to be a whole lot of fun.
