A graduate of the New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has served as co-owner and business instructor at Dental Sleep Masters for the last year. Outside of his professional responsibilities, Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an avid sports fan who holds season tickets for the New York Rangers NHL team.

Throughout the year, the New York Rangers partner with the Garden of Dreams Foundation to hold fundraising and awareness events that benefit children facing challenges or illness. On October 22, 2015, the team participated in the NHL’s annual Hockey Fights Cancer initiative by holding an awareness event during its game against the Arizona Coyotes.

With the support of the Garden of Dreams Foundation, the Rangers hosted several families from Hassenfield Children’s Center at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Before the game, the children participated in a number of stadium experiences, including riding the Zamboni, throwing t-shirts to the crowd, and eating a catered dinner in the stadium lounge. They then joined nearly 20,000 Rangers fans who had gathered to watch the game.

During the awareness night, the Rangers wore special lavender warm-up jerseys and hockey stick tape, which they later auctioned to raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. After the event, the team offered unique merchandise to benefit the entire Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.

Championship History of the Cleveland Browns

Avi Weisfogel, DDS, is the co-founder and owner of Dental Sleep Masters in South Orange, New Jersey. Beyond his activities as a business leader and dentist, Dr. Avi Weisfogel roots for the Cleveland Browns.

Despite having never won a Super Bowl under the National Football League’s (NFL) two-conference system, the Cleveland Browns stand as one of the most successful football franchises in American history. The team got its start during the 1946 All-America Football Conference (AAFC) season and went on to win the inaugural AAFC championship over the New York Yankees. In fact, the Browns won all four AAFC championships before the AAFC was absorbed by the NFL.

In 1950, Cleveland won its fifth consecutive championship, this time with a two-point, come-from-behind victory against the Los Angeles Rams. Between 1951 and 1953, the team would lose three consecutive NFL championships before winning again in 1954 and 1955. The Browns made additional championship appearances in 1957, 1964, and 1965, with the franchise’s eighth and final victory coming in 1964 with a 27-0 win over the Baltimore Colts.

An Overview of the Los Angeles Lakers-Boston Celtics Rivalry

Dr. Avi Weisfogel, owner of Dental Sleep Masters in South Orange, New Jersey, is an avid sports fan. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is particularly supportive of Los Angeles-based teams such as the Dodgers and Lakers.

Since the start of the National Basketball Association (NBA), the league has been defined by two teams, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. The Lakers have earned 16 championship banners, second only to Boston’s 17. With the teams residing in opposite conferences, their postseason matchups have all occurred during the NBA Finals. Despite this limitation, the two franchises have done battle on 12 occasions. The teams first met in the final series of the 1959 NBA Playoffs, with the Celtics earning a 4-0 sweep over the Lakers.

The Celtics continued to get the better of their West Coast rivals during the 1960s. The teams met in the finals six times between 1962 and 1969, with Boston winning on each occasion. The Lakers, however, started to close the gap and pushed three of the series to seven games. The Celtics again edged the Lakers in a seven-game series in 1984 before the Lakers finally bested Boston with a 4-2 series win the following season. The Lakers again scored a 4-2 victory in the 1987 NBA Finals. The teams would not face off again for more than two decades, when Boston reclaimed its edge in the rivalry with a 4-2 win in 2008. Most recently, the Lakers scored their third NBA Finals victory over Boston in a seven-game series to close out the 2010 season.

An Overview of the Four New York Rangers Championships

Avi Weisfogel, owner of Dental Sleep Masters in South Orange, New Jersey, is an avid sports fan. Avi Weisfogel is especially interested in New York hockey and holds season tickets for the New York Rangers.

One of the oldest and most storied franchises in all of professional hockey, the New York Rangers played their first season in the National Hockey League (NHL) between 1926 and 1927. Quickly establishing a tradition of winning, the team reached the post-season 15 times over a period of 16 years. This extended run of success included six trips to the Stanley Cup Finals, with victories coming in 1928, the team’s second season, as well as 1933 and 1940.

After initial success, the Rangers struggled for several seasons starting in 1942. Over the course of 13 years, the team made only two post-season appearances, though the franchise did secure its seventh Stanley Cup appearance in 1950, losing to Detroit in a memorable double overtime game seven. The Rangers fared somewhat better between 1955 and 1966, reaching the semifinals four times. The Rangers truly returned to the post-season picture in 1967, however. The team enjoyed nine consecutive playoff appearances, with an eighth Stanley Cup Final coming in 1972. After a two-year hiatus, the Rangers established themselves as a playoff threat 18 times over the following 20 seasons.

In 1994, the Rangers made their 10th appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals, finally adding a fourth trophy at the expense of the Vancouver Canucks in front of a packed Madison Square Garden Crowd. It had been 54 years since their last Stanley Cup victory. The Rangers have yet to capture a fifth Stanley Cup, though the team has made the post-season nine times in the past decade, reaching the NHL finals as recently as 2014.
