The Rangers will open the 2011-12 season in Stockholn, Sweden, with back-to-back games against the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Friday, Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct. 8.

It's the second time the Rangers will open the regular season outside of North America, the first being 2008-09 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Rangers' only appearance in the eastern time zone the first three weeks of the season is Oct. 15, when they face the Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum. With Madison Square Garden undergoing the first major phase of its renovation, the Rangers then head off on a four-game swing in western Canada, facing the Canucks, Oilers, Flames and then the unnamed Winnipeg team before returning home to face the Leafs Oct. 27.
