New York Rangers

Suiting up for the first time in five days, the New York Rangers welcome in the Toronto Maple Leafs to Madison Square Garden tonight.

By Robby Sabo

With the mass hysteria surrounding the World Series, many forgot about hockey in the Metropolitan area. It didn’t help matters that the New York Rangers haven’t played a game since Sunday night, five long days ago.

Nevertheless, the NHL is alive and kicking, and the Blueshirts hop right back on that horse tonight as they’ll host the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden.


Since the Rangers lost to the Montreal Candiens 3-0 on Oct. 25, they’ve been red-hot. A 3-0-2 record and 15-6 scoring advantage proves nothing but just that. Still, something seems to be missing that’s now allowing them to flow like the well-oiled machine we saw last spring.

For those fans clamoring for Dylan McIlrath along the blueline, you’ll have to wait even longer.

Dan Boyle continues to be a mainstay in the lineup. In fact, he’s running on a four-game point streak.

First puck drop comes at 7 PM ET.
