Weekend Day Games

If this has already been discussed in length I apologize. Am I the only one confounded by the lack of weekend home day games, and saturday home games? Every year the Rangers always seemed to play the 1pm Sunday, and oft times 1, or 5pm Saturday games. Looking over their schedule I see only one Saturday home game, which is the last game of the year vs the Devils @1230. There are 10 Sunday home games, of which 4 are definite night games (may as well be a monday night game), 3 are the dreaded TBD (thank you networks for letting us plan our day), one is a 5pm (Meh) and 2 are bona fide day games 11/4 @ 1230, and 2/27 @ 1pm. This may not bother some of you, but for those with families/kids, or those who work early jobs the lack of weekend options this year is puzzling to say the least. Does anyone know the reason for this?

Perhaps it has to do with the renovations underway? Work during the day, then the crews clear out and turn the building back over to the owner? Not saying they are working on the garden bowl itself, but back-of-house areas and the need to have construction staging during the day may limit the operating window for events.


Either way i like it. I always sell my weekend games because i can't stand the romper-room atmosphere of weekend games.

Been a trend the past couple of years that i have noticed as well. I have a youngster who likes to go to games, and we enjoyed the Sunday afternoon games.

sign 'o the times

It sucks for those of us who work or go to school the next day, but the lack of weekend day games may be a blessing in disguise as we were usually pretty putrid in them.

There was a thread about this here: http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=810133

I think it has to do with the fact that you guys can fill up the arena on weekdays where as some arenas due east of you need weekends to get fans in the building. The Isles have 17 weekend home games this year and four weekday/holiday day games.

That's my guess anyway.

Well I have a good alibi for missing that thread, I was in the Bahamas at that time!
