But cant really complain from the Rangers perspective. The travel will be a cinch compared to some of the Western conference teams, and now that they play 30 games outside the division it will be nice considering they match up well against most of them.

No game is easy in this league but the Rangers have shown over the past few season they play well in back to back contests and compressed schedules (see the start of last year going to Europe, long road trip with MSG construction, Winter Classic, HBO, etc.).

They seem to take the challenges head on and this year wont be any different. In that regard, i'd say the 48 gamer is an advantage for them, provided they can stay healthy.
Not to mention they won't be tired come playoff time. It was clear they ran out of gas during the Washington and New Jersey series.
