Judge refuses to let Genovese wiseguy attend New York Rangers hockey game

He’ll have to watch the Rangers game from home.

A Brooklyn federal judge swatted away a hockey-loving mafioso’s request to break the terms of his court-imposed house-arrest curfew to attend a New York Rangers game this Sunday, according to a court filing.

Judge Pamela Chen blocked Genovese crime family associate Felice Masullo’s application to watch his beloved blueshirts whack the Minnesota Wild at Madison Square Garden.

Masullo appealed to Chen to suspend his 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew to go the game after the Probation Department said the allowance would set a “bad precedent” in allowing crooks to break curfew for sporting events.

Once considered an up-and-coming Genovese hoodlum with designs on becoming a made man, Masullo served an eight-month prison term on illegal gambling raps and is currently on six months of post-release supervision.

Chen did not offer a reason for the rejection, only writing “motion denied,” on the application.
