We’ve become obsessed with point out celebrities at major sporting events. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Madison Square Garden is one of the sports venues in the world where you’re guaranteed to see celebrities, like the Staples Center in the Big Apple.

In fact there is even a science to how they determine who sits wear, mainly at New York Knicks games.

Unfortunately for the Knicks, it is the New York Rangers who reached the finals of their sport, playing the Los Angeles Kings for the Stanley Cup. It is the first time Madison Square Garden has hosted a Stanley Cup finals game in 20 years and it is drawing out all the bandwagon fans and celebrities.

In this case, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was in attendance. Cranston was in New York City for the Tony Awards on Sunday night when Cranston took the prize for leading actor in a play for his portrayal of Lyndon B. Johnson in All The Way, as well as performing on Broadway through the end of June

So Cranston headed to Madison Square Garden for the Rangers game and was displayed on the jumbotron.

But did you notice someone else in that picture? Perhaps famed actor Robert De Niro in the top left of the shot over Cranston’s shoulder.
