– Playoff Atmosphere

Tuesday night has all the makings of a really fun game for hockey fans to watch, as in addition to both teams playing well, adding the great rivalry of the Islanders and Rangers on top of that will likely cause a wild atmosphere.

Islanders’ fans have been traveling very well this season, as most recently shown against the Devils, and like always they will find their way into MSG, which will enhance the atmosphere of a rivalry game.

The Islanders and Rangers will meet again two weeks after this game on Long Island in what will likely be another great game between two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.
