Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle of the Hudson River

Rival Team: New Jersey Devils

Less than 10 miles separate these two Metropolitan Division rivals creating a tense in-arena atmosphere. The fact the Rangers and Devils have met in several critical Stanley Cup Playoffs series over the years has only added fire to the flames making Rangers-Devils one of the best rivalries in the NHL. Get your tickets to Rangers-Devils, so you don’t miss your chance to see this hotly contested contest.

Battle of New York

Rival Team: New York Islanders

The intra-city rivalry between the Rangers and Islanders mirrors the city’s Yankees-Mets, Giants-Jets, and Knicks-Nets rivalries. When you live in New York, you have to pick a side between these two, so everyone has bragging rights on the line when they play. Since 2001, the Pat LaFontaine Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the season series adding, even more, weight to winning this intra-city rivalry. If you want to see The Garden buzzing, then make sure to be in attendance for an Islanders-Rangers game.

Rangers vs Flyers

Rival Team: Philadelphia Flyers

The Rangers and Flyers have met in the Stanley Cup Playoffs 11 times, and when you combine that with the fact New York and Philadelphia already have an intense rivalry then you end up with one of the NHL’s best rivalries. There is always bad blood between these two Metropolitan Division rivals, so don’t miss it when the Flyers come to town.

Rangers vs Bruins

Rival Team: Boston Bruins

Just like any other Boston-New York rivalry you’ll find plenty of passion on display at a Bruins-Rangers game. The two teams have met numerous times over the year in the Stanley Cup playoffs with the rivalry peaking in 1972 when the Bruins defeated the Rangers 3-0 to win the Stanley Cup Finals in six. More recently, the Bruins beat the Rangers in the 2013 Eastern Conference Semifinals four games to one. Rangers-Bruins is always intense so don’t miss it when Boston comes to town.
