NY Rangers Game 10: Rangers at Arizona
The Rangers won big yesterday in Dallas, and now head to Arizona State University to take on the Coyotes. The Coyotes are 2-4-1 so far, and that’s about 2 wins more than people projected to start the season. So they can certainly sneak up on you if you’re unprepared. Given the Rangers are on the second of a back to back and have a habit of playing down to opponents, plus the Nemeth revenge game factor, this could be a trap.
This is also when the Rangers need to make a run. The good news is they started strong in Dallas, but they can’t let points against teams like Arizona slip away. The schedule is light, but throwing away too many points can be disastrous in a Metro Division that may send 5 teams to the playoffs. The division is strong this year, so start banking points.
