I know the sample size could be bigger
(and at least two of those nights, the opposing also played the night before), but I still think this says a lot about the Rangers this season.
Combinded with their ability to get in there and dominate thrid periods, I think it shows how well conditioned our guys are. The job this organization - and in particular coach Torts - must have done in camp, is impressive.
If they can keep this up, the remainder of this season will be very pleasant for the fans.
look at last season i think they were like 12-5 in the second game of back to backs nights.
