There is something to the psychological aspect of the OP's argument, but only in the way that the Rangers have consistently iced a pretty mediocre hockey team, and so other teams come into "the world's most famous arena" confident and ready perform on the big stage. This is especially true when the Rangers themselves are lacking in confidence, as they are now, which other teams can sense instinctively. It could easily have the opposite effect if the Rangers consistently iced a good team, and if MSG was a difficult place to play in, since the oppenents would come in perhaps intimidated or cautious.
