Game 1: The new season is upon us

The Winnipeg Jets visit the NY Rangers to kick off the 2019-2020 season

Our NY Rangers are kicking off their 2019-2020 season tonight, as the Winnipeg Jets come to town for their east coast trip. The game, while also being the season/home opener, is also the return of Neal Pionk to Broadway, and Jacob Trouba’s first game against his old team. The schedule is not without drama, it seems.

We won’t know until game time, but the Rangers teased a new intro:

I’m sure if this is the new intro, then most of us will be happy.

  • Marc Staal on a wraparound is the first goal of the season. I’ll buy a beer for anyone who can show me they predicted that.
