When the NHL announced its big season opener in New Jersey, fans were already clamoring to get their hands on a few special treats.
But, before the games even start, a few more things to know: – The New York Rangers will host the Buffalo Sabres at Madison Square Garden in their first game back in the Garden since the 2012-13 season.
– Both teams will have their own special merchandise toting bags to give away during the game.
Fans will also have a chance to meet the New York Islanders mascot and a handful of the city’s newest and most famous faces.
“We are thrilled to host the New Jersey Devils at MSG,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“I know this is a long way off, but it is an important step in our rebuilding efforts, and a way to show support for the players and fans in New Hampshire and across the country who have contributed to the success of this team.”
The game will be played at 8 p.m.
Here are a few things to look out for during the festivities: – There will be a large amount of fans outside the arena for the first time this season.
There will also be an opportunity for fans to take selfies with the Devils mascot.
– Fans will also get a chance at a “New Jersey Shake-Off” where fans will be able to purchase a bottle of brand-new ice cream, take a photo with the mascot, and then shake it off to receive a special souvenir.
