While the Rangers and Devils do battle in the Stanley Cup Playoffs it's never too early to make your plans for next year, and that year begins right here in the Capital Region as the Rangers and Devs do battle at the TU center September 26th.

Will 1 of these 2 teams be the defending champs when the season starts up again-time will tell. But time doesn't have to tell how these 2 clubs feel about each other. Throw in young players that want to prove themselves and this could be an entertaining exhibition contest.

The Devils are already well represented here in Albany with their top AHL affiliate the Albany Devils playing here. The Rangers are also well repped by a large fan base located here.

Usually selling out pre-season games can be an issue. Like all leagues the NHL likes to take many of their pre-season contests and put them places where fans who rarely get a chance to cheer their sporting heroes.

Tickets to see this match are on sale starting this past Saturday. I get thye feeling they won't last long. Contact the TU ticket office or other outlets for your duckets before they go.
