MSG Sports features some of the most recognized teams in professional sports, including the New York Knicks (NBA) and the New York Rangers (NHL). As an original franchise of the NBA, the Knicks have a rich history that includes eight trips to the NBA Finals and two NBA Championships, as well as some of the greatest athletes to ever play the game. The Rangers hockey club is one of the “Original Six” franchises of the NHL. With four Stanley Cup Championships and 11 Stanley Cup Final appearances, the Rangers remain one of the league’s marquee teams. Both teams play their home games in New York’s Madison Square Garden – The World’s Most Famous Arena.
