Finally, the schedule was announced earlier this afternoon, and the beginning of the season looks very enticing. The NHL season officially begins October 7th, which to me seems a little later than normal, and the Rangers officially begin Saturday October 9th in Buffalo against the Sabres. Only two days later we play the Fish Sticks… err, Islanders for a quick rivalry game in Nassau’s Falling Apart Coliseum. After that win, we have our first home against the Maple Leafs as I announced yesterday.
Some notes about the schedule:
- Nov. 1 – The Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks will come to MSG
Side note: Jonathan Toews will be on EA Sports’ NHL 11 cover this year
- Our last 3 games of the season are all home – very nice!
- Nov. 20 – Marian Gaborik returns to Minnesota to play against his former team, the Wild, for the first time since joining the Rangers
- Jan. 30, 2011 – NHL All-Star Game in Raleigh, North Carolina

- Oct. 11 @ NYI
- Dec. 2 @ NYI
