Great news for New York Rangers fans that have been hoping to watch their team on local television any of the games they'll play in Europe real soon.
Steve Zipay of Long Island Newsday wrote in his Blue Notes blog just a short time ago that MSG Network will televise all eight 2008 preseason games the Rangers are scheduled to play, including both at PostFinance-Arena in Bern, Switzerland on September 30th and October 1st. This will be the first time MSG Network will show an entire slate of Rangers preseason games in a given year.
Also assured are broadcasts of both games against the Tampa Bay Lightning at O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic to kick off the 2008-2009 regular season. The second game of the second NHL Premiere series will also be televised nationally across the United States on Versus.
