Their first round matchup pits them against the Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins , the final wild card team to sneak into the playoffs at the finish line.

4/10/15 - The New York Rangers are heading into their final two games of regular season play in the midst of a five game winning streak. Kevin Hayes, Ryan McDonagh, James Sheppard, and Carl Hagelin all scored for the Rangers' 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on the 7th. With this win, the Rangers won the Presidents' Trophy for having the most points in the NHL, which is the third time the team has won this trophy. This also means they will have home-ice advantage during the playoffs. They are also first in the Metropolitan Division with two games left. They play the Senators on the 9th for their final home game (tickets starting at $38) and head to Washington D.C. to play the Capitals for their final regular season game (tickets start at $14).
3/26/15 - Even though the Chicago Blackhawks edged out the New York Rangers on March 18, the Rangers are still on the top of the Metropolitan leader board with 46-19 record. Former Ranger player, Brad Richards, was the hero of the game for the Blackhawks on Wednesday. The first and second periods were played well by both teams, but the scoreboard still showed two big goose eggs by they end of the second period and well into the third. As the third period was coming to a close, Richards saw an opportunity for a goal and took it, giving the Blackhawks the 1-0 win against the Rangers. Watch the Rangers try to boost their record when they face off against the Washington Capitals on March 29. Tickets start at $38.
3/17/15 - The New York Rangers are fighting tooth and nail to stay in the number one spot in the Metropolitan division. They are looking good with 44 wins and a mere 17 losses. Boosting their record again, the Rangers were able to defeat the Florida Panthers two goals to one on March 15. The Rangers starting goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, has been out and replaced with Cam Talbot, who has surprised everyone with his incredible performance. He saved 38 goal attempts against the Panthers, which gave their offense the energy and fire they needed to put two goals into the opposing team’s net. They have won the last 14 of 17 games and hope to continue that streak. Watch the excitement live as they face off against the Chicago Blackhawks on March 18. Tickets range from $38-$1091.
3/13/15 - The New York Rangers have been doing incredibly well lately, now up to three consecutive wins. More importantly, after trying for several weeks, the Rangers have finally managed to overtake the New York Islanders for the top of the Metropolitan Division. What's more, they are now in a four-way tie for the top of the entire league, along with the Montreal Canadiens, the Nashville Predators, and the Anaheim Ducks. It is still a very close race as the end of the season approaches, but things are looking up for now. The Rangers will return to their home rink on March 15th to play the Florida Panthers, which is one of just eight home games remaining in the regular season. Tickets are available starting at $109.
3/6/15 - With the season quickly winding down, the race to come out on top of the division is more intense than ever. The New York Rangers still have not managed to overtake the New York Islanders, but they are still right on their trail. The Rangers are two points behind in the Metropolitan Division, three points shy in the Eastern Conference, and only six points behind the top team in the entire league, the Anaheim Ducks. A team as talented as the Rangers could easily close that gap in just a couple games, but they have been having some trouble since they started their five-game away series on March 4th. Disappointingly, the Detroit Red Wings managed to win by a single point. The Rangers will return on March 15th to play the Florida Panthers. Tickets start at $109.
2/25/15 - Having won seven of their last eight games, including five wins on the road, the New York Rangers are making a furious push to overtake their in-state rivals for tops in the Metropolitan Division—and perhaps the Eastern Conference overall. The Rangers followed a 3-1 victory over the Sabres with a hard-fought 4-3 shootout win at home versus Columbus, taking a 1-0 game from the Calgary Flames—a team who is battling hard to reach the postseason—just two nights later. The streak puts New York’s point-total at 80, just two fewer than the Islanders and three behind the East-leading Montreal Canadiens. The Rangers will host the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night, and tickets for Madison Square Garden can be yours for as low as $65!
2/20/15 - The New York Rangers scored a huge win over the Islanders on Monday night, rallying for what seemed like the entire game as they defeated their in-state rivals by a score of 6-5. The Islanders scored twice in the first 12 minutes, and built two-goal leads to start the second and third periods. It would be the Rangers with the final word, however, as they scored three times in the final 15 minutes to steal the win and close within just four points of the Islanders for first place in the division. Over the weekend, the Rangers will try to close the gap with games versus the Canucks and Sabres before returning home to take on the Calgary Flames on Tuesday. Tickets for the Garden are selling for as low as $63—be sure to claim your seats early!
2/13/15 - Mats Zuccarello led the New York Rangers to a critical win on Tuesday, as they prevailed 5-4 over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The win keeps the Rangers within striking distance of the top three in the Metropolitan Division, bringing their point total up to 67 on the season. Zuccarello was the difference maker for New York in their most recent contest, knocking in two goals—including the deciding score in the final minute of regulation—to lift his team to win number 31 this year. The Rangers will continue their four-game road trip on Thursday night in Colorado, moving on to face off with the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday. Great seats are still available at Gila River Arena, with tickets starting at just $35 each!
2/4/15 - New York Rangers fans were certainly ready for their team's series of home games, hoping they would give them the edge they need to catch up in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers, unfortunately, weren't able to pull off a win for the first game, but they have had better luck since then. First, they blew away the Carolina Hurricanes, when New York nearly shut them out. Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, managed to stop a whopping 32 shots. Then they welcomed the Florida Panthers with a brutal 3-6 defeat. The Panthers gave the Rangers a run for their money, managing to tie the game up at the end of the second period, but they couldn't score in the final period while the Rangers scored three times. They end their series of home game by playing the Boston Bruins. Tickets are still available for $90.
1/29/15 - On Thursdays (1/29), the New York Rangers kick off four games at home. They begin this stretch facing the Montreal Canadiens. Tickets start at $38. Following that game, on Saturday (1/31) they face the Carolina Hurricanes. After one day off, the Florida Panthers come to town on Monday (2/2). The final game is on Wednesday (2/4), when the Boston Bruins face the Rangers. Tickets are available at Razorgator for all of these games. Madison Square Garden will be hopping with hockey fans every game night. Beat the winter blues when you come out to watch your team play and catch all the action on the ice. There’s no better place to enjoy the game than in the arena with hundreds of other fans cheering the Rangers to victory.
1/21/15 - The New York Rangers have won the last two games and will look to make it a three game winning streak before they start their break for the NHL All Star Weekend. They beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Friday, Jan. 16, followed by a 5-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on the 18th. Their victory puts them in a four-team race for the top of the Metropolitan Division, which currently belongs to the New York Islanders. The Rangers are only two points from the second place team, the Penguins, so they have a chance of pulling ahead during the remainder of the season. When the regular season recommences, the Rangers face the New York Islanders on Tuesday, Jan. 27, and tickets are still on sale for this New York rivalry match, starting at $100.
1/15/15 - The New York Rangers five game winning streak ended on Tuesday, Jan. 13, with a 3-0 loss against the New York Islanders, which also ended the 13-1-0 hot streak the Rangers have been on since Dec. 8. Before the third period, starting goalie Henrik Lundqvist was pulled and replaced by Cam Talbot, who made 12 saves. Derek Stepan also had to sit out for the third period due to a shoulder injury. The Rangers will look to reignite their hot streak when they begin a stretch of three road games in a period of four days starting Thursday with the Boston Burins (tickets start at $23), followed by the Columbus Blue Jackets on the 16th (tickets start at $19), and the Pittsburgh Penguins on the 18th (tickets start at $5).
1/9/15 - The New York Rangers may be ranked 4th in the Metropolitan Division, with a 22-11-4 record, but that did not stop them from beating the Anaheim Ducks, who are currently ranked first overall in the league. Rangers' goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves, only allowing one goal by the Ducks. With Derick Brassard, Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello and Dominic Moore all providing goals for the Rangers, the team easily took the 4-1 victory. This game was the first of a three-game road trip in California that spans over four days. The Rangers will look to capitalize on this victory and continue their three game winning streak when they face the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 8th, followed by the San Jose Sharks on the 10th (tickets starting at $59) before returning home to face the New York Islanders on the 13th (tickets starting at $38).
1/1/15 - The New York Rangers eight-game winning streak has ended, with a loss on December 29th against the Dallas Stars. The streak was the longest in 40 years for the team, and it tied with the longest winning streak in the current NHL season. Although J.T. Miller and Kevin Hayes both scored for the Rangers, the team was not able to defeat the Stars, a team that is working hard to make the playoffs despite their 6th place ranking in their division. The 2-3 loss brings the Rangers' record to 19-11-4 for the season, and they are ranked 4th in the Metropolitan Division. They face the Florida Panthers on December 31 for their last game of 2014, before returning home on January 3rd for a game against the Buffalo Sabres. Tickets remain on sale, starting at $38.
12/25/14 - The New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 1-0, bringing their record to 17-10-4 for the season so far. The game brings their winning streak to six games, which is the longest they have had in the past three years. This could demonstrate the team is finally finding its rhythm, especially as the winning goal came early in the game. The Rangers were able to hold onto their lead for 56 minutes of play, although they did have a goal disallowed as well. They next meet the Washington Capitals on December 23, which will be sure to be a great match, as the two teams are long time division rivals. After the holiday break, the Rangers will meet the New Jersey Devils at home (tickets starting at $38) before heading on a road trip, starting with the Dallas Stars (tickets start at $10).
12/18/14 - The New York Rangers have been dominating their series of away games. The most recent victory was against the Calgary Flames. After taking a two point lead for the first period, they only added to their lead until the game ended with a landslide win of 5-2. Rick Nash led with two goals, the first of which being unassisted, and Derek Stepan was close behind with one goal and one assist. Despite the Ranger's recent success, they are still fourth in the Metropolitan Division, sitting at 15-10-4. New York will finish their away games when they play the Carolina Hurricanes on the 20th and then they will take on the Hurricanes again immediately on the 21st. You can welcome them back to New York for $38.
12/4/14 - The New York Rangers had their first loss in about a week when they took on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday. Despite ending their 2 game winning streak, scoring 3 times on a team that is dominating as much as the Lightning is impressive. Even more impressive is that they were able to hold their own until the end of the second quarter, tying the game. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay was able to shut out New York in the final period to bring the final score to 6-3. On the bright side, the Rangers did outshoot the Lighting by 14. This game brings them to 11-9-4 and places them 3rd in the Metropolitan Division. However, they are only one win ahead of the Washington Capitals.
11/26/14 - The New York Rangers shutout the Montreal Canadiens last Sunday with a 5-0 win. The Rangers sit in 3rd place in the Metropolitan Division, with a 9-7-4 record. The Rangers haven’t been the team they were last year when they went to the Stanley Cup playoffs, but they are beginning to show their strengths again. They’ve won the last two games in shutouts and they’re averaging 2.80 goals per game, which puts them in 10th place in the league. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Rangers travel to Philadelphia to face the Flyers on Friday, then on Saturday, they come back to Madison Square Garden to host the Flyers. The following Monday, the Rangers play the Tama Bay Lightning on home ice. Purchase your tickets to these great games and get hot seats to watch an exciting game.
11/19/14 - Unfortunately, the New York Rangers just couldn’t get it together on Monday when they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1. Getting only half as many shots, the Rangers were behind by 2 at the end of the first period. It looked like they might be able to make a comeback when they made a goal 32 seconds into the second period, but they couldn’t keep their momentum. Now at 7-7-4, New York has won just as many as they’ve lost, ranking 4th in Metropolitan Division. On Wednesday, they will be playing against the Philadelphia Flyers who also have 7-7-2. If you’d like to come and watch these two teams fight to gain a positive win/loss ratio, a few tickets are still available for $54.
11/13/14 - The New York Rangers want to get back to the Stanley Cup finals so they can show their fans they can clinch the title. At 4th in the Metropolitan Division, they have some work to do, but the Rangers have the potential to do. They need their fans to cheer them on when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday, November 17, and the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday. You’ll want to get your tickets for these exciting games to help the Rangers get on a winning streak to propel them back into a stronger place. In a special Veteran’s Day game where the Rangers honored members of the military, they gave their fans a great game when they trounced the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 5-0 shutout. Come out to see the Rangers do it again!
11/6/14 - The next week is sure to be an exciting one for the New York Rangers. With a match up at home against the Detroit Red Wings, New York is hoping to improve their current standings to redefine what has been a challenging season. Taking down Detroit will not only bolster the Rangers confidence, but will certainly aid them as they again face off at home against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. With that remarkable home advantage, the Rangers are in a prime position to turn the tables and gain on the leaders of their Metropolitan division. With a house full of screaming fans, New York will be more than capable of protecting their territory and climbing up the rankings over the next few weeks. Tickets for the game against Detroit are still available starting at $51 per seat.
10/28/14 - The NHL’s Metropolitan Division is still tightly packed, with seven of the eight teams within four points or fewer from the top, the New york Rangers are scrapping for every point. They had to come back from a 4-2 deficit midway through the third period to knock off Minnesota, 5-4.
The New York Rangers were both surprising and stunning last season. After faltering early on with their rookie head coach, the Big Apple team ranked No. 2 in the Metropolitan Division and stretched their playoff bid all the way to the Stanley Cup Final—the franchise’s first time in 20 years. Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers sent the archrival Flyers, Penguins and Canadiens reeling in the postseason, before suffering a heartbreaking elimination in Game 5 of the of the Final series. New York was the last team in the NHL to succumb to Los Angeles’ relentless forward motion, putting an end to their utterly inspiring campaign. The Rangers now enter the 2014-2015 season with some roster changes, but look promising in their year to defend the Eastern Conference title!
Alain Vigneault was sterling in his debut season, but the head coach will have to work with a slightly shifted squad in NY's upcoming year. The Rangers lost some major players in free agency: Brad Richards, Benoit Pouliot, Derek Dorsett, Brian Boyle and Anton Stralman, but have added defenseman Dan Boyle and forwards Lee Stempniak and Matthew Lombardi to juice up their lineup. The Blueshirts are favorites to enter the postseason—but just how far will they take their campaign this time? Join your Eastern Conference Champions with New York Rangers tickets this year!
The 2014-2015 season has tons of must-see games for Rangerstown. New York opens their season on the road at the St. Louis Blues on Oct. 9, followed by a home opener on Oct. 12 against Toronto. November 11 brings the revenge-hungry Pittsburgh Penguins to Madison Square Garden, and shortly after, Nov.17 sees the return of familiar faces (Ryan Callahan, Boyle and Stralman) on Tampa Bay. Don’t miss out on NY Rangers tickets when they seek vengeance over the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 8 in a Stanley Cup Final rematch that may have the makings of a 2015 championship preview!
6/9/14- The New York Rangers are looking to get back into the Stanley Cup Final despite being two games down.

It only takes one win to turn the tide in the NHL Playoffs, can the Rangers cut Los Angeles’ lead in half? Buy New York Rangers tickets now and be at the Garden to witness hockey at its best!

5/26/14 – We witnessed another overtime thriller at Madison Square Garden last night; this time it was the Rangers who came out on top. Martin St. Louis scored at 6:02 in OT on Sunday to give New York a 3-1 series lead. The right wing’s game-winner came on the 20th anniversary of Mark Messier ensuring a win over the New Jersey Devils on the road to the 1994 Stanley Cup championship (the Blueshirts are one win away from earning their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 20 years). If NY can’t get it done in Game 5 on the road, the Rangers will try to secure a spot in the Finals in front of a home crowd Thursday (get-n $399).

5/20/14 – The Rangers were victorious again in Game 7 punching their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals following a 2-1 stunner over the Pittsburgh Penguins on the road. They’ll have to play without home-ice again; despite being the higher seed in the series, the Montreal Canadiens get the advantage as they tallied more points in the regular season. New York Rangers tickets over three games averaged $715 once the opponents were determined. The series is averaging $745, $140 more than last year’s East Finals between the Penguins and Bruins. Thus far, New York is up 2-0 and will return home for Game 3 at MSG; if you don’t mind going solo, grab the cheapest ticket for Thursday night for $321 and you’ll get a seat in the 100 level (Baseline).

4/7/14 – The Rangers failed to clinch a playoff berth Saturday, losing to the Senators 3-2 in regulation. Defenseman Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) missed his second straight game after the hit from Alexandres Burrows and Chris Kreider (hand) doesn’t look like he will comeback any time soon. New York could secure a postseason spot tonight if the rival New Jersey Devils lose to the Calgary Flames.

4/1/14 – With the Flyers 4-3 shootout loss to Boston and New York’s shutout win over the Oilers, the Rangers increased their lead for second place in the Metropolitan Division to two points over Philadelphia.

3/18/14 – If the NHL Playoffs started today, the New York Rangers would be in by the skin of their teeth.

3/10/14 – Goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves Sunday afternoon at the Garden to record his 300th career regular-season win!

3/3/14 – The next stretch of the New York Rangers schedule is looking optimistic as the team will play their next five against opponents they beat in their last meeting – Toronto (3/5) and Detroit (3/9) at MSG and Carolina (3/7, 3/11), and Minnesota (3/13) on the road. With just two days remaining until the NHL’s trade deadline, fans are left to wonder if the Rangers will agree to a six-year term with captain Ryan Callahan or if Sunday’s game against Boston was their last chance to see their forward in a Rangers uniform.

2/25/14 – New York Rangers tickets for the team’s return are in high-demand, averaging $303 (up 44% in the last week). Thursday’s game at the Garden against the reigning Stanley Cup champions, will open the post-Olympic stretch of the Rangers schedule, which will include 13 road games and 10 at home. Anticipation is running high as Glen Sather decides if he’ll trade Ryan Callahan or Dan Girardi before the trade deadline and avoid losing either for next-to-nothing free agency.
2/19/14 – It’s been a roller coaster year for the Blueshirts! Currently second in the Metropolitan Division and sixth in the Eastern Conference, the Rangers won five of their last six heading into the Olympic break. But, the team and fans received some bad news today - New York Rangers’ point leader, Mats Zuccarello, has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his left hand. Zuccarello has a career-high 43 points this season and will return from Sochi for further evaluation. The Rangers’ first game after the break is Feb. 27 at home against the Chicago Blackhawks (avg. $211).
2/3/14 – After two wins against rivals, New York Islanders, the red-hot Rangers are now 14 of 20. But, the Rangers record is not what everyone is talking about; instead all eyes are on captain Ryan Callahan. Will Glen Sather deal his forward? With a decision expected before the Olympics, Rangers fans will wait to see if Callahan and the franchise can come to an agreement on a contract extension or if the team will trade him. Stay tuned! For now, the Rangers will host the Avs (2/4) and Oilers (2/6) at Madison Square Garden this week. Tuesday’s game against Colorado is the cheapest remaining home game of the 2013-14 regular season (avg. $99).
1/29/14 – After a four-goal second period, the Rangers beat the Devils Sunday night outdoors at Yankee Stadium. The first-ever hockey game in the Bronx sold out weeks ago; at an average price of $206 10 days before game day, it was the more expensive of the two games to be held outdoors in New York this month. But, after fans watched the intense rivalry play out over the weekend, the price of Stadium Series tickets for Wednesday’s game against the Islanders took off. The last time these two Metropolitan foes faced off, the NYI got the win (3-5) at MSG.
The Rangers are entering the post-John Tortorella era after another premature playoff exit, essentially swapping the outspoken Tortorella for former Canucks coach Alain Vigneault. Average price for Rangers tickets at home in 2013-14 is currently $206. After starting the regular season with 9 straight road games, the Rangers first home game at Madison Square Garden against the Canadiens on 10/28 is averaging $238. The most expensive home game is on 12/20 against the New York Islanders, averaging $286. The Rangers will play two outdoor NHL games this season at Yankee Stadium. Yankee Stadium will be the site of New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers in the Battle of the Hudson River (1/26) and the New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers Battle of New York game (1/29).
While a normal 82-game hockey season, usually running from early October to early April, can be likened to a marathon; this season will be more of a sprint to finish, since the season has been shortened to 48 games by an extended player lockout. The New York Rangers, after having the best record in the NHL's Eastern Conference last season under coach John Tortorella, have gotten off to a slow start in this year's sprint but are still within reach of the playoffs.
Right winger Marian Gaborik is co-leading the team in scoring with center Brad Richards; left wing Rick Nash, acquired in the offseason from Columbus, is not far behind the two in points. Defenseman Stu Bickel leads the team in penalty minutes while averaging just a few minutes of ice time per game. The majority of the Rangers' goaltending is being handled by Henrik Lundqvist, who is in the middle of the pack league-wide in goals-against average. As a team, the squad is in the bottom half of the league so far in goals per game and in the key stat of power play percentage; they’re doing well enough defending the home ice at venerable Madison Square Garden but need work when on the road. New York Rangers tickets average $158 for remaining 2013 home games — the 8th most expensive ticket in the NHL. If you're on a budget, you'll find cheap NY Rangers tickets from $64 in the upper 200 and 400 levels at MSG. Upcoming must-see Rangers games on the schedule include the Washington Capitals (2/17), Philadelphia Flyers (3/5), and Pittsburgh Penguins (4/3).
