There's still nearly a third of the season remaining. The recipe is simple...win as much as possible, and when they don't, make sure the losses don't come in regulation.
Agreed
But the Carolina game leads to an important series of games that precede the trade deadline.

Which may or may not be eventful for the Rangers part (center + defenseman that EVERYBODY is raving about - but we now have very few attractive assests that other teams would be find attractive or that we would be interested in parting in return for - imo at least).

If the Rangers play 5-2 hockey until then (which is highly possible) - they would need to go 11-8 the last 19 games to reach 91 points. Which is my current prediction to where an 8th slot would have to land to squeeze in - gathering the current "evenness" in the standings. This may however change...
