On Thursday, March 24th, Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, hosts of WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show on MSG Network, will lace up their skates and hit the ice at Madison Square Garden, as they host the first ever “Garden of Dreams Boomer and Carton Shootout” to benefit the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
Craig Carton, coached by former Rangers goalie Dan Blackburn, will be charged with defending the net against Boomer Esiason and his team of Ranger greats including Brian Leetch, Adam Graves, Brian Mullen, Ron Duguay, Stephane Matteau and Jay Wells. Team Boomer will each have one shot against Carton in goal, and one point will be tallied for each goal scored or saved. The team with the most points at the end of the shootout wins.
