Sunday in New York: Pro sports in 4 boroughs
How’s this for an odd occurrence? There will be a professional sports event in four of New York City’s five boroughs Sunday.
The Rangers will oppose the Flyers in a National Hockey League playoff game with a noon faceoff at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. Also in the afternoon at 1:10, the Mets will be home at Citi Field in Queens against the Marlins.
The Nets will continue their National Basketball Association playoff series at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn at 7 p.m., and the Yankees will complete their three-game series against the Angels at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx at 8 p.m. on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball.
Only Staten Island will be dark for pro sports. The Yankees’ Class A affiliate there does not open its New York Penn League schedule until June.
