Rangers, Nets Games Will Proceed After Snowstorm

Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Rangers’ game against the New York Islanders and the New Jersey Nets’ contest against the Orlando Magic will begin at their scheduled times tonight as the New York City region digs out from a blizzard that blanketed the East Coast.

“Tonight’s game is still on,” Dino Ticinelli, a spokesman for the National Hockey League’s Rangers, said in an e-mail. Faceoff is set for 7 p.m. at Madison Square Garden.

The Nets’ 7 p.m. National Basketball Association game at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, also will be played, team spokesman Gary Sussman said in an e-mail.

Snow totals in the New York City area in the last day were estimated at 15-20 inches, according to the National Weather Service, which had a blizzard warning in effect until noon New York time today. The storm kept both the National Football League’s New York Giants and Jets from returning home after road games yesterday. The Jets lost 38-34 at the Chicago Bears, while the Giants dropped a 45-17 decision at the Green Bay Packers.

The snowstorm also led to yesterday’s postponement of the Philadelphia Eagles’ scheduled night game against the Minnesota Vikings. That game will be played tomorrow night at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, marking the first Tuesday NFL game since 1946, according to ESPN.
