This comes from Ken McMillan of the Hudson Valley Times Herald-Record:
MSG Network has moved two Rangers games and two Knicks games to FREE TV, which is probably good news to the few of you who don’t have cable television or subscribe to the cable sports packages. WPIX (Channel 11) will carry the four contests.
Rangers: Feb. 28 vs. Colorado; March 21 vs. Buffalo
Fair enough. Good news for anyone in the New York market that still doesn’t have MSG. But McMillan asks a more interesting question in his column:
For the life of me, I cannot think of the last time, if ever, the Knicks or Rangers appeared on WPIX. From 1966-89, both teams made their free TV home on WOR (Channel 9), and four games appeared on My9 last season. WNBC (Channel 4) has been assigned a couple late-season games in recent years. Naturally, WNBC, WNYW (Channel 5) and WABC (Channel 7) have carried national or regional telecasts are part of the NBA and NHL packages.
Any of our more elder statesmen reading the blog: Have the Rangers ever aired games on Channel 11?
