Rangers to Battle Islanders in Pre-Season Showdown at Hartford
/ New York Rangers
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the Rangers will battle their arch-rivals, the New York Islanders, in a pre-season tune-up on Sunday, October 1, at the Hartford Civic Center. Game time is 1:00 p.m.
The game will be the final test before captain Mark Messier and the Rangers open their 75th anniversary season on Saturday, October 7 in Atlanta.
This is the third consecutive year the Rangers have closed out their pre-season schedule with a game in Hartford. Madison Square Garden, L.P., took over the management of the Civic Center in 1997.
