The boys are off skates today, resting up for physicals and their brutal first day of camp tomorrow.
But today the schedule is finally announced. We know — or we’re pretty sure we know — that the Rangers’ 48-game season begins Jan. 19 in Boston and that the home opener is the next night against Pittsburgh. And that might have changed.
We’ve also heard that ya boys are going to play the Penguins and Flyers five times each (somebody alert the Empire State Building), and the Devils and Islanders just four times each, and that the trade deadline will be April 3.
In case I am not right on top of this schedule release, keep an eye on the twitter widget ———->
Or keep checking the Rangers team site, or NHL.com. We will have the entire schedule here during the day … or at least a link to it.
