[MSG+2 (Islanders pre-game at 6:30pm), 970 WNYM, 88.7 WRHU-FM, 103.9 WRCN]
The Islanders begin their 45th NHL season at Madison Square Garden as they face the Rangers in an Opener for only the second time in their history.
Opening Night Skinny:
The only other time the Isles and Rangers opened against each other in 1997; it was a 2-2 tie at Madison Square Garden. Bryan Berard and Todd Bertuzzi scored for the Islanders; Adam Graves and Pat LaFontaine (in his NYR debut) scored for the Rangers.
