The New York Rangers have released the team's pre-season schedule prior to the upcoming 2013-2014 season.
#NYR 2013 Preseason Schedule: 9/16 @ NJD 9/17 @ PHI 9/23 @ CAL 9/24 @ EDM 9/26 @ VAN 9/27 @ LAK (In Vegas)

Obviously, pre-season is pre-season but there's still a few interesting games here. The Rangers could face the Devils or Flyers in Go Fish and there would be animosity and fireworks. It's also a bit interesting that the Rangers are planning on a game in Calgary. The Saddledome, where the Flames play, was severely damaged during the Calgary flooding and, despite the insistance of the Flames otherwise, there seems to be concern that the arena won't be ready in time for even the regular season.
The one to circle on the calendar, though, is the matchup against the Canucks. Tortorella faces the Rangers. Vigneault faces the Canucks. It will be nothing short of a circus and should make for an amusing game.
Finally, the Rangers finish by playing the Kings… in Las Vegas. The Rangers and Kings previously played an outdoor game in Las Vegas in 1991.
