Pencil in St. Patrick’s Day for a little Blueshirts vs. Fishermen at MSG.
The NHL has announced that the Rangers vs. Islanders game at Madison Square Garden that was postponed on Nov. 28 has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 17, 2022, at 7 p.m. Per the Rangers, all tickets for the originally scheduled game can be used on March 17.
That Nov. 28 game was one of two Islanders games postponed due to the team’s COVID outbreak, the other a Nov. 30 game in Philadelphia, which has yet to be rescheduled.
Between COVID protocols, injuries, and their massive season-opening road trip, the Islanders are in the midst of a difficult season, entering Tuesday with a 5-10-5 record – those five wins tied for the least in the NHL – and an 0-4-2 record at their new home arena.
