Steve Zipay at Blue Notes reports that renovations to Madison Square Garden will force the Rangers on the road to start the 2011-12 season…
“With Garden renovations underway, there is increasing chatter that the Rangers will open next season, not in Russia, but with two games in Stockholm against either the Los Angeles Kings or Calgary Flames. Those games would be preceded by exhibition games in Prague and Budapest and three road exhibition games in the U.S. After Europe, the Rangers would play a number of games on the West Coast of either the U.S. or Canada before returning for the home opener around Oct. 30. A NHL spokesman last night said that no contracts have been signed and declined further comment.”

…so not only are season ticket prices going up we’re going to lose a game as well? Nice.
…man how burned out are those guys going to be when that road trip is over. Geez.
