I was fooled/Rangers to start Playoffs Away from Home?

UPDATE: Folks, Rangers’ beat writer Rick Carpiniello pulled a fast one on us and on me. This was an April Fools Day joke so please disregard. I apologize for being the fool on this!

From Rick Carpiniello at The Rangers Report:

Because of Knicks games that can’t be moved in a condensed NBA season, a contract for a concert series which Madison Square Garden cannot break, and pressure from NBC Sports to alternate Rangers games and Flyers-Penguins games in the first round of the playoffs, word is starting to leak out of a potentially drastic step.

The Rangers are considering giving the OK to the NHL to start their first-round series with two games on the road, despite earning the home-ice advantage. The league and the Rangers are negotiating a scenario in which the Rangers would play the first two games on the road, then come home for three consecutive Garden games, go on the road for a Game 6 if necessary, and have home ice again for Game 7.

The league has spoken to one of the teams fighting for the No. 8 spot and of course has gotten the OK from that team, though it’s not clear if that was Washington, Buffalo, Ottawa or Florida.

What do you Rangers’ fans out there think of this?
