Note: The Rangers Need To Take Advantage Of Their Home Stand

MSG Stick SaluteThe Rangers have seven games remaining in February and five of them are at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers play the Islanders tonight, Capitals on Sunday and Montreal on Tuesday before a two game swing in Ottawa and Montreal. The Rangers then return home to play Winnipeg and Tampa Bay to close out the month.

So far this season the Rangers are 5-2 at MSG and 2-3 on the road.

Jeff Halpern told the Rangers website yesterday┬áthat this is a big stretch of games coming up, “it puts a little pressure on us to make sure that we take advantage of our home games. I think it’s important when you have these home stands to get wins and get some separation. It starts with one game at a time but these home games almost become more important than road games because you have to get points in those games.”
