The Detroit Red Wings
and New York Rangers
don't see each other nearly as often as they did in the Original Six era, when they met as often as 14 times in a season. These days, it's usually once a season -- and this season's meeting comes in one of five games on Wednesday night's NHL schedule.
The Wings, who've won the last five meetings with the Rangers, come to Madison Square Garden for just the third time since 2003 following a 5-3 home loss to Washington on Monday, the same night the Rangers beat New Jersey 4-2.
The NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. Canadian viewers can see the game on TSN2.
Wednesday's action begins at 7 p.m. ET, when Montreal visits Buffalo in a game that can be seen in Canada on RDS and Florida visits Carolina.
An hour later, Vancouver continues a road trip that began with a 2-0 loss at Minnesota on Monday with a visit to Chicago. That game can be seen in Canada on TSN. In the final game of the night, St. Louis continues its road trip in Anaheim. The Blues haven't played since clinching a playoff berth with a 3-1 win at Tampa Bay on Saturday, while the Ducks are home after Monday's 5-3 win at San Jose.
