Once the rangers finished their 3 games in 4 days stretch Tuesday in New York (playing the 3 games in 3 different cities, Nashville, Philly, New York), the rangers now get to play just one game in a 5 day span. They were off monday, played tuesday, then off till saturday.
So 3 in 4 nights
1 in 5 nights
Starting saturday, they play 3 in 4 nights again.
3 in 4
