MSG Transformation Updates - Part 2

10/21/13: Some new information about the scoreboard from @StacyAlbano: The main boards are 15.7ft by 28ft and the upper ring is 6ft by 29ft.

10/14/13:  The scoreboard continues to grow. They have added a new ring to the top with the arena name on it. I think this was a nice touch!




10/10/13:



The size of the scoreboard is massive, and now you can see just how large it really is!




10/7/13: Upper ring of the scoreboard is now working. Knicks floor is being layed down and shined.






10/1/13: Here is the new scoreboard in action! Thanks to @StacyAlbano for the photo.


9/30/13: The scoreboard is functioning! It wont be too long now before the ice goes in.


9/20/13: The plastic tarps are coming off of the seats and crews are working on the upper LED ring of the scoreboard.



9/14/13: We are still waiting to see exactly what that piece around the bottom of the scoreboard is going to be. My guess is a power ring above the scoreboard.


9/12/13:




9/11/13:





9/8/13: This has to be the slowest scoreboard construction project in a long time. It doesn't help that they had to stop work on it for a while so that the new arena floor could be constructed.



8/29/13: Scoreboard construction continues now that the concrete has had a chance to harden. Can't wait to see the end result!



8/22/13: More work on the bridges. The floor is covered with plywood and work continues around the perimeter.

Th Rangers first home game is a full 50 days from now. They play their home opener on Oct 28th vs Montreal. All 6 pre-season games are on the road, as well as the first 9 games or the regular season schedule. This should give them plenty of time to get MSG ready for the drop of the puck just before Halloween.!

The NHL has done a good job catering the schedule to the MSG Transformation efforts. Even more surprising, the Rangers seem to overcome the struggles of the lengthy road trip that they have at the beginning of each season. I bet they will be glad to finally have things back to normal next season!

Are those new bridges going to obstruct the view of the the new scoreboard for people all the way in the back rows up top in the arena?

DTC said...

Yes. It's making a lot of people angry.

Nick said...

damn, that sucks. get a brand new scoreboard and you can't even see it because of those unnecessary bridges.

Joseph Lambert said...

well, the bridge tvs can help that.

I wish they would also use the current Spalding backstops this season. MSG and the Energy Solutions Arena are the only two left using the old design.
