I’m headed to Yankee Stadium, where the Devils and Rangers are practicing today before tomorrow’s Stadium Series game. Hope to have audio and video from there later.
From the Rangers:

The fundraising event to benefit the Garden of Dreams Foundation will take place on Monday, March 3rd and will feature the entire New York Rangers team, coaching staff and select alumni for an evening of casino type games at Gotham Hall.

All net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Garden of Dreams is a non-profit charitable organization that works with all areas of The Madison Square Garden Company, including the Knicks, the Rangers, the Liberty, MSG Entertainment, MSG Networks and Fuse to make dreams come true for children facing obstacles. Since its inception in September 2006, Garden of Dreams has created thousands of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that have brought joy and happiness to over 250,000 children and their families. These unique and unforgettable, on-going events and programs – often involving unprecedented access to The Madison Square Garden Company’s celebrities, events and venues – have brightened the lives of children facing everything from homelessness, to illness, to foster care.

Also, one of our regular readers here is running a special fund-raiser for Liam Traynor, the local boy whose story was brought to light during HBO’s “24/7″ leading up to the Rangers’ Winter Classic game in Philadelphia in 2011-12.
Liam’s favorite player was Michael Del Zotto, and the fund-raiser is with the hope of sending Liam and his family to Nashville to see Del Zotto play for the Predators.
