Rangers Podcast: The Four-Point Swing

The Rangers desperately need to beat the Blue Jackets in Columbus

It’s losses like the one the Rangers suffered to the Blue Jackets at the Garden a few weeks ago that keep bubble teams out of the playoffs. It’s games like the one between the Rangers and Blue Jackets in Columbus on Friday night that could be the difference in playing an 83rd game or not. The all-important, four-point swing within the division and wild-card race will be present, and the Rangers have to win to keep their postseason dream alive.

Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda joined me to talk about the surprising play of this season’s Blue Jackets, the void left by Artemi Panarin, the decision to not sign Sergei Bobrovsky, the team’s never-ending injury bug in, the differences between John Tortorella in New York and Columbus and what the roster will look like after the trade deadline.
