Rangers Announce 2018-19 Schedule

Blueshirts open season on October 4 against Nashville at MSG

New York, June 21, 2018 – The New York Rangers announced their 2018-19 regular season schedule today. The Blueshirts will begin their 92nd NHL season on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018 against the Nashville Predators at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are beginning the regular season at home for the third consecutive season and for the 27th time in franchise history. The last time the Rangers began three or more consecutive seasons with a home game was a seven-season stretch from 1981-82 – 1987-88.

The Rangers will play a total of 28 games against Metropolitan Division opponents this season, as they face each of the other seven teams in the Metropolitan Division (Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, NY Islanders, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington) four times apiece. New York will play 24 games against teams in the Atlantic Division, facing each of its eight Atlantic Division opponents three times apiece. The Rangers will play two home games against four Atlantic Division opponents (Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, and Tampa Bay) and two road games against four Atlantic Division opponents (Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, and Toronto). The Blueshirts will play 30 games against Western Conference opponents, facing each of the 15 teams in the Western Conference twice in 2018-19.

The Blueshirts will play six of their first nine games of the 2018-19 season at Madison Square Garden. Each of the Rangers’ first five home games of the season is against a Western Conference opponent, while 12 of their final 23 home contests are against Metropolitan Division opponents. The Rangers have a season-long, five-game homestand to begin February from Feb. 2, 2019 against Tampa Bay to Feb. 10, 2019 against Toronto.

The Rangers will have 11 back-to-back sets during the 2018-19 season, matching their total of back-to-back sets from 2017-18. The Blueshirts’ 11 back-to-back sets in 2018-19 are tied for the fewest among Eastern Conference teams. New York’s busiest month of the season is March, as the team will play 15 contests during the month. The Blueshirts will play more home games in November and February (eight apiece) than in any other month during the season. In addition, the Rangers will play more road games in March (nine) than in any other month this season. The Blueshirts play more home games on Tuesdays and Sundays (seven apiece) than on any other day during the week in 2018-19. New York will also play five home games on Mondays, five home games on Wednesdays, six home games on Thursdays, five home games on Fridays, and six home games on Saturdays throughout the course of the season.

The Rangers’ longest road trip of the 2018-19 season is four games. New York has three separate, four-game road trips during the 2018-19 season: Oct. 25, 2018 against Chicago to Nov. 1, 2018 against Anaheim; Feb. 12, 2019 against Winnipeg to Feb. 19, 2019 against Carolina; Mar. 11, 2019 against Edmonton to Mar. 16, 2019 against Minnesota.

For the second consecutive season, the Rangers will reach the midway point of the season and play their 41st game on Jan. 6 at Arizona. The Rangers’ five-day bye week will take place from Jan. 20, 2019 through Jan. 24, 2019 and will lead into NHL All-Star Weekend in San Jose on Jan. 25 and Jan. 26. Beginning with their contest on Jan. 10, 2019 against the NY Islanders, 18 of the Rangers’ final 40 games in 2018-19 will be against Metropolitan Division opponents. The Blueshirts will have two home-and-home sets during the 2018-19 season, one against the Senators (Nov. 26, 2018 at MSG and Nov. 29, 2018 at Ottawa) and one against the NY Islanders (Jan. 10, 2019 at MSG and Jan. 12, 2019 at Brooklyn).

Starting times for all contests at MSG will be 7:00 p.m., except for the following nine games: Sat., Oct. 13, 2018 vs. Edmonton (1:00 p.m.); Sat., Nov. 24, 2018 vs. Washington (2:00 p.m.); Sun., Dec. 2, 2018 vs. Winnipeg (6:00 p.m.); Sun., Dec. 16, 2018 vs. Vegas (1:00 p.m.); Wed., Feb. 6, 2019 vs. Boston (8:00 p.m.); Sat., Feb. 23, 2019 vs. New Jersey (1:00 p.m.); Wed., Feb. 27, 2019 vs. Tampa Bay (7:30 p.m.); Sun., Mar. 3, 2019 vs. Washington (12:30 p.m.); Wed., Apr. 3, 2019 vs. Ottawa (7:30 p.m.).
