The Rangers have one more game tonight in Boston to wrap up a busy January, then go on a nine day break for their bye week and the All Star break. The Blueshirts have just three wins this month, going 3-6-0 thus far. However, their three wins have come in their last four games, so they are riding a bit of a hot streak at the moment. This comes right as Tony DeAngelo was paired with Marc Staal. There’s no correlation there, just coincidental timing that I thought was funny.
Boston is one of the better non-Tampa teams in the Eastern conference. They currently sit one point behind Toronto and third in the Atlantic. They are a tough opponent, which might be what #TheVision needs for the tank. Remember though, players don’t tank, and you don’t want them to try to lose. Keeping Mats Zuccarello hot to boost that trade value would be nice.
Zuccarello would fit in on Boston’s second line RW spot, though. Makes you think.
