And for those who prefer a schedule in a visual calendar form, here’s the information above presented differently.
The Rangers will be playing a rotating schedule of games vs. the other seven teams in their division. They will faceoff against each division opponent eight times for a total of 56 games.
As a reminder, the other teams in the division this year include:
- Boston Bruins
- Buffalo Sabres
- New Jersey Devils
- New York Islanders
- Philadelphia Flyers
- Pittsburgh Penguins
- Washington Capitals.
As for the start times, the schedule is straightforward with the majority of games scheduled for 7:00 p.m. local time, but there are two 12:00 p.m. starts, one 12:30 p.m. start, three 1:00 p.m. starts, one 3:00 p.m. start, one 5:00 p.m. start, two 6:00 p.m. starts, and two 7:30 p.m. starts.
These different times account for situations in which the Rangers are on NBC or NBCSN, or situations in which there’s a back-to-back like Saturday April 17 (12:30 p.m) and Sunday April 18 (3:00 p.m.). I, for one, am OK with one season without late games out west, even if that means we will be deprived of some good #BlueshirtsAfterDark content. IYKYK.
