New York Rangers Look to Tame Minnesota Wild: Fan Preview
The New York Rangers have already met their No. 1 goal when the season began. It was simple-make the playoffs. While teams such as the Detroit Red Wings are great at home but are awful on the road, the Rangers play well regardless if they are on home ice or not. Quite frankly it is a great position to be in.
On Tuesday, March 27, the Rangers will take on the injury-plagued Minnesota Wild. While the game is on the road for New York, the matchup should prove to be a welcome break with the Pittsburgh Penguins right on their tail for the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers have not been playing their best in recent weeks, but it has been good enough to keep them up where they belong.
The New York Rangers will take on the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center located in St. Paul, Minn. on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at 8 p.m. EDT.
New York comes into the game having won their last game and with a 47-21-7 record. They are 21-11-5 on the road and have won five of their last 10 games.
Minnesota enters the matchup having lost their last two games and with a 31-34-10 record. They are 17-15-4 on their home ice and have won three of their last 10 games.
