Ready to see more of the Rangers, kids? Yeah. At least this time, it’s against a Bruins team that’s been screaming for some national attention this season. NBC’s taking the Bruins-Rangers showdown from the Garden as it’s Game of the Week March 8th at 12:30 PM.
SUNDAY, MARCH 8
12:30 p.m. – 3 p.m.
NHL GAME OF THE WEEK (Boston Bruins @New York Rangers)(live)

This will be the Rangers third “Game of the Week” appearance, the Bruins first, and potentially first of three straight, as Bruins-Pens will likely be taken over Rags-Flyers and Wings-Jackets on 3/15 and Bruins-Devils will probably get chosen over Kings-Hawks on 3/22 (with Crosby’s Pens taking on Philly ineligible for selection).
Who’s psyched to see another beatdown from The Garden? To be fair, folks would’ve gone nuts if the Pens-Caps had been selected twice in a row, from the same building nonetheless, and it’s not like Phoenix-Isles or Hawks-Avs are really gonna set the world on fire. Finally, it’s high time the Bruins got on the network to see if they have any ratings potential.
