Nick Mangold has been with the Jets since 2006, long enough, apparently, to have become a pretty big fan of the New York Rangers. In fact, during a playoff game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, the Pro Bowl center had to be repeatedly told to settle down by security at Madison Square Garden.

According to the New York Post, Mangold was targeting Penguins assistant coach Rick Tocchet and star center Sidney Crosby with a torrent of trash talk from his perch on the other side of the glass. Crosby had a goal as his Penguins won, 3-1, to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round playoff series with the Rangers.

Sitting with Mangold were teammates Eric Decker, Bryce Petty and Zach Sudfeld, plus Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw a Jets-record 31 touchdown passes last season but is currently a free agent in search of a bigger contract than the team appears inclined to offer. Decker posted video of Mangold and Fitzpatrick, both known for bushy beards, looking chummy during the game.

The group went to the game in classic New York style — by subway. Jets fans are certainly hoping that Fitzpatrick is making more than just a token appearance in their city. (Fun fact: the New York subway system completely phased out tokens in 2003!)

This isn’t the first time that Mangold has proven the loud lengths to which he will go in support of the Rangers. In January, the center, again accompanied by Fitzpatrick, made life miserable for the visiting Dallas Stars.
