The New York Rangers have released the team's pre-season schedule prior to the upcoming 2013-2014 season.
#NYR 2013 Preseason Schedule: 9/16 @ NJD 9/17 @ PHI 9/23 @ CAL 9/24 @ EDM 9/26 @ VAN 9/27 @ LAK (In Vegas)— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) July 16, 2013
Obviously, pre-season is pre-season but there's still a few interesting games here. The Rangers could face the Devils or Flyers in Go Fish and there would be animosity and fireworks. It's also a bit interesting that the Rangers are planning on a game in Calgary. The Saddledome, where the Flames play, was severely damaged during the Calgary flooding and, despite the insistance of the Flames otherwise, there seems to be concern that the arena won't be ready in time for even the regular season.
The one to circle on the calendar, though, is the matchup against the Canucks. Tortorella faces the Rangers. Vigneault faces the Canucks. It will be nothing short of a circus and should make for an amusing game.
Finally, the Rangers finish by playing the Kings... in Las Vegas. The Rangers and Kings previously played an outdoor game in Las Vegas in 1991.

Ah...the doldrums of summer.
Just counting down the days til they lace'em up....
And someone drops the gloves at center ice........
Hope Veeno doesnt coach like a freaking sissy.
Brooks just tweeted that Stepan talks have gone nowhere and would not be surprised if talks dragged into september and even training camp.
As for the schedule... I am more interested in the regular season.. i hate preseason in every sport, just asking for injuries. I get the point of it, but the games mean nothing... The NHL would be smart to make opening night for Rangers, Rangers @ Canucks 8pm on NBC SN, that would draw a ton of people
I was there for that game. Was in the middle of a 3 month trip bumming around the west coast rock climbing. We went to Red Rocks outside of Vegas for climbing and went into Vegas for some cheap buffet food. We saw the sign for the game but no way we could afford $50 per seat. Luckily, security was not very tight so we walked in and watched the game. Was awesome!
I hate that we are away for so long to start the season. this renovation is getting old.
also I'm watching a "summer ice" that I taped. John Moore is so smooth!!! a call it now that he will have a coast to coast goal this year.
Sather must be content with the toughness on this team since carcillo just got traded for a song. don't get me wrong i would never want him but if I grinder forward that can drop the gloves can be ha for a conditional pick and Sather's not doing it then he must be happy with Dorsett and John Moore(lol) doing the heavy lifting.
@McPhee37 is that a haikou?
@homer119 Usually it is already out... but they said they will release it a couple days after the announcement of players being involved in the olympics this year.
@FREE LINDBERG preseason is when you'll get to see what your boy Lindberg can do!
@GiveGartneraCup Rangers first home game is November 1st, I have heard.
@GiveGartneraCup after this season, based on the msg website
we should just take point shot after point shot in the sedins and introduce them to the shot blocking system that will drive them into our organization for a massive discount next year haha
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG I like it.... Builds chemistry and more home games at the end of the season... when they matter a whole lot more
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG welcome to the PRAW-CESS
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG i was being snarky about the typical nhl overkill of having 6 outdoor games this year. you know, taking something special and unique and beating it like a rented mule. Bettman-style.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG 1000 and 1 ways to hamstring your offensive stars
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG ok, so its an amoeba-like existence. its still technically "life."
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG nice. get ready to live.
dude, I got MSG finally and while I'm upset that they don't have more rangers summer programming I'm salivating for Sam and Joe on a 60 inch. so freaking excited.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG summers been cray-cray. trying to get all of my crap done now so when the season starts I can go back to posting during games like an obsessive lunatic.
