Well the Rangers are back in action tonight against Minnesota, and I actually remembered they are playing tonight! Progress! For those who missed it, I completely forgot the Rangers had a game last night in Calgary, and by the looks of the highlights (I couldn’t watch the game, double whammy) the Rangers forgot they had a game too. With travel to Minnesota and a time zone change, the Blueshirts may come out sluggish in this one too.
The Blueshirts are in free fall, with a 1-4-5 record in their last ten games. Kudos to them for getting to overtime, but boy are those loser points killing their draft position. They currently sit in 7th, and are two points from 5th. Getting into the top-five (a 25% chance of getting into the top-two) is a win for this year.
