2 BOS, 2 PHI and 2 PIT in the first 7 games. (1 TOR)

I guess the bright side is getting all the anger out early?

Game in Florida got moved from Super Bowl Sunday to Tuesday April 23rd and the Friday Februrary 15th game in Buffalo got moved to Tuesday March 12th. Those were the only three date changes.

This looks like a lot of hockey packed into a short time.

I think for a compressed schedule this is very good for the rangers. A lot of the games are on sat tues and thurs only 3 weds the entire season. Should make for a consistent roll of games allowing the team to get into a routine.

Everyone will have to deal with playing a ton of games but out of the gate the rangers have little travel, over 2/3 rds of their home games in the first half. It should allow them better recovery time (and even a little more practice time) then most teams if managed correctly.

Anyway you cut it there's no easy game or stretch but IMO this sked could be a lot worse and probably is for other teams, even in the eastern conf.

After a final home and home against the pens the final 11 games of the season are against 'manageable' teams

You have Benn, O'Rielly, Subban, and MDZ. All very valuable RFA's left to sign.

A very slim group of UFA's is left, but there's something.

And maybe teams have been communicating its each other about regular trades (not purely cap dumps) for a long time, but haven't had a chance to make them official until now.

Regular 186 day, 82 game season: 3.086 games per week average
Shortened 99 day, 48 game season: 3.394 games per week average

When looked at that way, it's not that much of a difference. One extra game every 3 weeks.

It's actually great that Asham is out for Game 1. "Softens" us up a bit in terms of fighting. Let the Bruins beat themselves, like last season

Brutal opening start. If we do well though, it will put us in great position over the long haul. But lose too many and we can be out of it pretty quick. Every game essentially counts as 2 normal games, so a 3 game losing streak is pretty brutal.

Other teams' skeds are pretty odd. The Islanders have five road games to close season as well as a seven game homestand. The Flyers have similar ones. Wonder why we were spared these long trips.

Because our schedule last year was very screwy?

Wow, I dislike how the Rangers have hardly any weekend games, and none on Saturday nights.
Ouch.

After the Flyers and Penguins, I don't see a team in the same field as the Rangers. Shouldn't have a problem against the weak Southeast and Rangers had the Northeast's number. Would prefer to face Devs and Isles 5x as opposed to the Pens or Flyers, but that would be nit-picking.
You do realize that the Coyotes lost in the Conference Finals last year?

Wouldn't that mean there are at most 6 sets of 3 in 4 since that requires a back2back to be part of the 3?

Not sure if serious. They play the following games on a Saturday:

Jan 19th, Jan 26th, Feb 2nd, Feb 23rd, Mar 16th, Mar 30th, April 6th, 13th, and 21st.

9 out of 48 on Saturday. Over 20% of their schedule is on a Saturday. If you meant home, then yes, only 3 (2, but the Islanders are a home game) would be that way. Have to figure those were going to be that way anyway for the other schedule, so they kept it the same. The Garden is most likely being used on Saturdays the most.

Through March 5, the Rangers have two or more home games in a row five times. After that they have two sets. interesting. It seems like there are a lot more road games in the 2nd half.

It can work on both sides. I prefer to call it a 4 games in 6 nights, but you could have something like this:

Jan 1st, Jan 3rd, Jan 4th, Jan 6th.

That is two different 2 in 3 nights, the back end (3,4,6) and the front end (1,3,4).

They have 2 real 3 in 4 nights. They have 3 real 4 in 6 nights.
