Rangers versus Islanders this week, a look at MSG programming, and get playoff gear here

The Rangers and Islanders will face-off in an exhibition contest that will be a full-tilt game. Yes, it is exhibition, but the expectation is that both squads will use this as a primer for game one of their respective qualifying rounds.

Rangers versus Islanders on July 29

These two hometown rivals will face off on Wednesday at 7PM. For the Islanders, Seymon Varlamov should get the entire contest in goal. As for the Rangers, it would be wise to play Shesterkin for the first two periods and give Henrik Lundqvist the third.
