After last night’s whiff in Toronto, the Rangers are back in action against the Flyers tonight at home. The Blueshirts are significantly better at home, and the Flyers are significantly worse than the Leafs. What troubles the Flyers is their goaltending. The Rangers score a decent amount, so this has the potential to be a high scoring affair.
As for the team defense, well the Rangers are what they are. It’s time we stopped expecting anything else for now. There’s many reasons why the defense is still this bad, but that’s not for this post. The Rangers are going to need to light up the opposition to have any chance of winning games this year. They do a good job of that at home.
