The New York Rangers six-game preseason schedule for the 2017-18 season was announced today.
The Rangers also played six preseason games against Metropolitan Division rivals last season. An interesting fold to the upcoming exhibition games is that the Rangers first road game (9/22 vs the Islanders) will be played at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut - the home rink of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. It has 10,000 seats.
That “neutral” location will present Connecticut-based Rangers and Islanders fans with a great opportunity to watch some NHL preseason hockey.
The start time for all three of the preseason games at Madison Square Garden will be 7:00pm. Single-game tickets will go on sale in September.
