MSG Networks Announces 2017-18 Rangers Telecast Schedule

MSG Networks To Telecast 71 Regular Season Games And All Six Preseason Games

by New York Rangers @NYRangers / NYRangers.com

The New York Rangers, an Original Six franchise and winter staple for New Yorkers, return to MSG Networks this season with 71 regular season games scheduled and all six preseason games. In addition, MSG Networks preseason and regular season games, along with pre- and postgame coverage, will be available on MSG GO, MSG Networks' live streaming and video on demand platform for smartphones, tablets and computers.

MSG Networks telecasts kick off on Monday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. when the New York Rangers host their first preseason matchup against the New York Islanders. The puck drops for the Rangers' opening night on Thursday, October 5 at 7:00 p.m. with a matchup against the Colorado Avalanche at Madison Square Garden. In addition, MSG Network will have complete coverage of the anticipated Jean Ratelle Night on February 25th. A complete telecast schedule is included below.

Sam Rosen, the recipient of the 2016 Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame, returns for his 34th season as the play-by-play voice of the Rangers and will be joined by in-game analyst Joe Micheletti, back for his 12th season. Al Trautwig will serve as host of Rangers telecasts for all home games and Bill Pidto will handle host responsibilities for all road games. John Giannone will resume his reporter duties for all Rangers games while a rotation of expert analysts will handle pregame, intermission, and postgame analysis including Steve Valiquette, Ron Duguay and Dave Maloney. All Rangers games will also appear on ESPN98.7 radio with versatile play-by-play announcer Kenny Albert calling the action and the aforementioned former Rangers great and captain Maloney handling the analysis. Don La Greca will serve as back up play-by-play announcer for games on ESPN 98.7.

Rangers game telecasts, presented by Chase, will be preceded by the 30-minute pregame show and immediately followed by the "Mercedes-Benz Rangers Post Game Show."
