Well, at least I sure hope so. Carp’s off doing another job tonight and, as you read this, I’m gearing up for Bruuuuuce! But that doesn’t keep us from giving you, the RR bone/knuckleheads, your first official clean slate for the season opener (finally!) Personally, if I were home, I wouldn’t tune in til after the whole pre-game yuck.
So, here’s the pre-game notes with a link for more (before the jump!) Enjoy, have fun, and LET’S GO RANGERS!!
P.S. How many comments do you think you can post for game 1?
The Rangers begin their 2009-10 regular season tonight against the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, at Mellon Arena (7:30 p.m.), marking the second straight year the team has started the season on the road. Tonight’s contest is the first of back-to-back games for the Rangers, and the first of three games in four days to begin the season. In seven pre-season contests, New York posted a record of 3-3-1 (seven pts.), including a three-game winning streak from September 19 at Boston to September 24 against Washington. Pittsburgh posted a 1-4-1 record in six pre-season games. Following today’s game, the Rangers will host the Ottawa Senators tomorrow, October 3, at Madison Square Garden (7:00 p.m.), in their regular season home opener.
