After a lackluster start to November, the New York Rangers have turned it up in their last two matchups, scoring seven goals and recording two shutouts. Veteran winger Martin St. Louis, who, like his team, got off to a slow start, is now scoring in spades, tallying nine points in his past nine games. While St. Louis has turned it on as of late, Rick Nash has been hitting his stride all season long after a disappointing run in 2013-2014. Through 21 games, the lumbering left wing has 21 points, including 14 goals. Derrick Brassard rounds out the Rangers scoring attack. The veteran looks to be experiencing a breakout season scoring wise, notching 16 points through 20 games, including six on the power play. Tickets for each of the following games can be purchased at the bottom of this post.
The little things have been hurting the Rangers, however. They’re 28th, for instance, in faceoff percentage and have the second fewest power play opportunities in the league. Approaching Thanksgiving, the Rangers are 9-8-4 in a crowded Metropolitan Division. Here are the Rangers’ home ticket prices throughout the holiday season.
