GAME 40: NY Islanders at NY Rangers, Madison Square Garden, NY 7pm

For those of you trying to recall March 5th 1994, that was the Rangers 1st win at the Nassau Coliseum in a long while. It was important because it broke the hex and would come into play when the Rangers swept the Isles in the 1st round of the 1994 Cup run.
