“We’ve got to be better at home, especially our starts. Must’ve been 7, 8, 9, 10 games we’re down a goal in the first three or four minutes. We've got to figure that out. You can't do that in this league, the way teams play....We had the good start last year and the last 15 games, but we need to play that way consistently.... I don’t want to speak for everybody, but the summer was too long, especially the way we missed the playoffs.”
The Rangers were 18-17-6 at MSG last year. As opposed to 20-16-5 on the road.
...if you can take care of business on your home ice, you usually have a great chance of making the playoffs. And when you don't, well we all saw what happened last year.
