Wow. The Rangers have a VERY favorable travel schedule for the first month+ of the season. They do not travel out west until November 19th. Until then, they have 11 home games, 8 away games, and the furthest they have to travel is Toronto.

Only thing is, though, that they have a lot of compacted game sets:

- 3 in 4 (10/21 @ TOR, 10/23 @ BOS, 10/24 vs. NJ)
- 4 in 6 (10/27 vs. ATL, 10/29 vs. CAR, 10/30 @ TOR, 11/1 vs. CHI)
- 3 in 4 (11/4 @ PHI, 11/5 @ NJ, 11/7 vs. STL)
- 3 in 4 (11/14 vs. EDM, 11/15 @ PIT, 11/17 vs. BOS)

Looks like plenty of work for Biron in the first month! Even through mid-December, it looks like there are a lot of back to backs. Hopefully Biron stays sharp.
Yeah I noticed those sets as well. Every year they have those groupings, because of concerts, the Knicks and other events at the Garden. Its gotta be tough to make a schedule that fits all 30 teams and doesnt feature back to backs every week.

Speaking of back-to-back sets:

The Rangers have 18 of those throughout the year... it seems like 3 each month which is pretty high. They have less at the end of the year which is good.
