This game is enormous. As are all of them ahead.

• The Rangers are 5 points out of 5th place, but also 5 points away from 14th...
• 8 out of last 12 on the road (6-9-1 thus far)....
• 7 of last 12 against teams currently out of the playoffs...
• 2 back to back sets, but 2 sets of 2 days rest which will be needed.
• Tonight is the first game of 3 in 4 nights...
• With a game or two in hand against the teams in the race the Rangers need ROW's...

Would love two - but I'd be very happy with a point tonight, 3 out of 4 against the Pens in a home and home would be wonderful.

The Rangers have to build on the last game, and they are going to need to do that considering that Pittsburgh isnt going to play the way they did in MSG. They were asleep all night. The Rangers have to find an identity on the road during this roadtrip, unlike the last one. They have some players to do that now. (Really wish Dorsett was playing).

It would behoove this team to score first. 6th in the league in winning % when scoring first.
