NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The NY Rangers are home against the LA Kings Monday night for game three of the Stanley Cup Final.

But the fun begins hours before the match-up.

The Rangerstown Hockey House, complete with a new, second level, opens to the public on Monday at 2 p.m.

The absolutely free fan experience even comes with actual former NHL stars, including Adam Graves, who will be on hand to sign autographs and take pictures.

From bubble hockey to video games, fans can get a close-up of Rangers' uniforms.

The Kings lead the Rangers 2-0. Former player and Stanley Cup winner Adam Graves, who scored 52 goals in 1994, is ready for the big game.

“It’s going to be electric. The coach basically said it, it’s the biggest game in the building in 20 years. People have been hungry for this. This team really deserves it. They’ve had to withstand so much adversity which has less to do about the game and things that are more important in life, said Graves.

Rangerstown Hockey House is located in front of Madison Square Garden on 7th Ave. and 33rd St.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
