The First Ever Zamboni Challenge Photos

Hours before the Rangers and Capitals took to the ice for Game 3, another battle was being fought on the streets of New York City just outside Madison Square Garden.

Former Rangers Ron Duguay and Stephane Matteau squared off in a zamboni race down 33rd Street. With the Blueshirts faithful cheering them both on, Duguay edged out Matteau to capture to victory.
