The Landlubber’s Guide to the New York Rangers

Hey you. You’re swept up in all this Seattle Kraken hype. You want to know more about hockey but don’t know where to start. Well, we want to help make these games easy and fun for you to watch.

Throughout the season, we’ll release Landlubber’s Guides designed with the new fan in mind. This includes basic need-to-know info for you to absorb before you watch Kraken games and highlights.

Let’s dive in to the New York Rangers.

Are they any good?

Pretty good! The Rangers have been in a rebuild phase for a few years but they’ve come out strong so far this season with 5-2-1 (wins, losses, OT losses). They’re third place in the Metropolitan Division right now.

With a host of young talent and Gerard Gallant as the new head coach, the Rangers could really do some damage this year.

Who should I look out for?

Any Seattle ties?

Not that I know of! If you know of a PNW connection on the Rangers, let me know in the comments.

Odds and Ends
