FDNY AND NYPD TO SQUARE OFF AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN “RIVALS FOR RELIEF” BENEFIT HOCKEY GAME TO SUPPORT THE HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF EFFORT NY RANGERS, NY ISLANDERS, NJ DEVILS AND PHILADELPHIA FLYERS ALUMNI TO PARTICIPATE IN CHARITIBLE HOCKEY GAME SET FOR DECEMBER 22 AT 7:30 P.M. New York, NY (December 18, 2012) – The police officers and firefighters, who day in and day out put themselves in harm’s way to protect the citizens of New York City, come together with former NHL players in “Rivals for Relief,” a benefit hockey game to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  The hockey game is scheduled for Saturday, December 22, at Madison Square Garden. New York Rangers alumni including Dan Blackburn, Ron Duguay, Chris Ferraro, Peter Ferraro, Rod Gilbert, Ron Greschner, Ed Hospodar, Mark Janssens, Chris Kostopolous, Eddie Mio, Brian Mullen and Steve Vickers will join the FDNY hockey team and face off against NY Islanders alum Eric Cairns, Pat Flatley, Butch Goring, Benny Hogue, Gord Lane, Mick Vukota, Randy Wood; former NJ Devil Ken Daneyko as well as former Philadelphia Flyers Andre “Moose” DuPont, Brian Propp and Dave Schultz who will team up with the NYPD team.  Additionally, former NFL star and current host of the Boomer and Carton Show on WFAN and MSG, Boomer Esiason is also expected to lace up for the New York City Fire Department Hockey Team. A portion of the proceeds raised by the unique hockey game will be donated to the Red Cross and the Stan Lee Foundation, which seeks to provide access to literacy, education and the arts throughout the nation.  Through generous donations, 4,000 children and young adults affected by Hurricane Sandy are expected to attend and will be accompanied by select New York Rangers alumni. Tickets for “Rivals for Relief,” priced at $25.00, $50.00, $65.00, $90.00, $250.00, are currently on sale and can be purchased at the Madison Square Garden Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, Ticketmaster charge by phone (866-858-0008) and online at www.thegarden.com. ...pretty awesome that a month after Atlantic Division rivals came together to raise funds for victims of Sandy during a game in Atlantic City, that their alumni is now doing the same.
