New York, NY (June 13, 2019) – MSG Networks (NYSE: MSGN), the television home of the New York Rangers, announced a complete lineup of special programming tomorrow to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Rangers’ Stanley Cup victory. Starting at 12pm ET on Friday, fans can tune in to relive many of the amazing moments from the team’s championship season and memorable Stanley Cup title, which they won on June 14, 1994.
The day-long programming will be highlighted by an episode of “Connections,” featuring Rangers legends Brian Leetch, Adam Graves and Mike Richter. The three Rangers icons recently sat down together for an incredibly candid conversation about the team’s historic Cup run. During the insightful, wide-ranging discussion, they reminisced and touched on everything from the mutual respect and admiration for each other, the passion of the fans and the surreal feeling after they won the Cup.
MSG Networks will also re-air Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Devils, as well as Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Canucks that took place 25 years ago on June 14, 1994. In the deciding Game 7 of the Conference Finals, Stéphane Matteau helped cement his place in Rangers lore by scoring the series-clinching goal in the second overtime period to send the Rangers to the Stanley Cup Finals. During Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Mark Messier, Adam Graves and Brian Leetch, who was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP, all scored to lead the Blueshirts to victory and the Stanley Cup title.
Throughout the day, fans can also watch a replay of the team’s ticker-tape parade celebration down the Canyon of Heroes, a countdown of the greatest plays from Mark Messier’s illustrious career and more.
