11 NHL Games On The Schedule Today

from John Kreiser of NHL.com,

The longest season-opening trip in New York Rangers history comes to an end Saturday night.

With Madison Square Garden undergoing the final phase of remodeling, the Rangers were forced to open the season with nine consecutive road games. The ninth and final one will see the Rangers meet the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena, a place where they haven't won in the 21st century. New York's last win in Detroit came on Jan. 30, 1999, and the Rangers have won only twice at the Joe since the start of the 1986-87 season.

The Red Wings hope they're catching the Rangers at the right time. Detroit has dropped three in a row and was hammered 6-1 at home by the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

View today's schedule below and we do have one game starting at 3:00pm ET...

We’ve seen the recent threads that talked about that unreal percentage of teams that are in a non-playoff spot by Nov 1 or some date, and how slim the chances are that they will make the playoffs; four percent, or something like that. To have to start the season with nine straight road games is close to criminal.

Someone, an MSG bigwig, Rangers brass, somewhere, should be fired.
