The New York Rangers are on the hunt for the team’s fifth Stanley Cup, facing off this week against the Carolina Hurricanes in the second round. To keep fans excited about the playoff run, the hockey team is painting New York City blue with viewing parties, prizes, giveaways, appearances by alumni, and photo experiences. Giant letters spelling the Rangers’ appropriate motto for the season, “No Quit in New York,” have popped up across Manhattan, perfect for a pre-game photo op.
Ahead of game four on Tuesday night, the letters will be stationed outside of Madison Square Garden from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., welcoming fans before the puck drops. You’ll find the experience outside of 4 Penn, on 31st Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Former Rangers Nick Fotiu, Darren Langdon, Stephane Matteau, and Glenn Anderson are expected to make an appearance.
Prior to game five on Thursday, the letters will then move outside Chelsea Market, on 9th Avenue and West 15th Street, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Throughout the playoffs, the “No Quit” motto was spotted at other iconic New York City locations, including the South Street Seaport, Moynihan Train Hall, Bryant Park, and Manhattan West.
Other playoff activations and experiences include a Rangers Fan Zone, located in the former Modell’s on 34th Street and 7th Avenue. Open on game days, the fan zone offers face painting and tattoos, games, including a slapshot shootout and NHL video games, alumni meet and greets, and photo opportunities with life-size cutouts of your favorite player.
On Thursday, the Rangers are hosting a game five viewing party at Marquee New York, a nightclub on 10th Avenue. The free event includes giveaways, live music, and more. As the party is first come, first served, reserve your spot here.
If you didn’t snag a ticket to see a game at The Garden, there are plenty of bars nearby that will be packed with Rangers fans, like American Whiskey, Tir Na Nog, The Keg Room, Mustang Harry’s, Jack Doyle’s, and Feile.
