Delta charters New York to Newark flight for Rangers fans
NEW YORK -- New York Rangers fans just can't wait to get to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference finals.
In an effort to show up in Newark in style, Delta Airlines has chartered a flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport that will carry blueshirts fans on the 23-mile journey to New Jersey ahead of Saturday's game.
Rangers fans, already holding tickets for Game 3 against the Devils, were able to register on the team's website for a chance to snag one of 80 seats on the plane.
The lucky fans on the flight, which is expected to take about 17 minutes, will be joined by former Ranger greats Rod Gilbert and Ron Duguay.
The Rangers and Devils are currently tied at one game apiece in the best-of-seven series.
