The New York Rangers have just released their schedule for the 2008-2009 NHL regular season, and I have to say, I really love it.
The Rangers will open up with two games against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Prague on October 4-5 and will then return home for their home opener against the Chicago Blackhawks. What an exciting night that will be, as two fast, exciting teams will battle it out at the Garden.
View the entire schedule here.
Now the question is, which games do you want to go to?
Obviously, I would love to see the home opener because I've never been able to get tickets to one before and since it's on a Friday night, I have to try extra hard this season.
There are more games in between that I would want to see, but the next one I really want would be the March 8 game against the Bruins. My friend always comes down from Connecticut to see the Bruins and Rangers at MSG and it would be really nice meeting him there.
What I've learned in the past few seasons is this: I sit at the computer waiting like a kid on Christmas for the schedule and when it comes out I circle all the games I want to go to, which is usually about five or six.
But what always happens is they're sold out for whatever reason and I have to go to different games. This season will be no different as the Rangers are the hottest ticket in town.
