MSG today is giving us a Rangers training camp special. Being that I don’t see this as being exciting at all, I’m creating a drinking game to play while they play. 11:30 AM may be a little bit too early in the day to do this, so maybe you’ll want to DVR it and watch at a more appropriate time.

-The playoff series against the Devils is mentioned.
-A current NHL player who does not play for the Rangers is mentioned. (Bonus drink: They didn’t play for the Rangers in the past.
