The Blueshirts schedule will feature four games against the Islanders as we reported earlier in the day versus the three last season. It’s also noteworthy to point out that their longest roadtrip of five games (Westcoast trip) will happen very early in October, when the team is fresh.

Finally, the Rangers will play in 12 sets of back-to-back contests which is less than the 16 they had last season.
