Rangers Vs. Jets Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New York Rangers continue their mini road trip Wednesday night with a tilt against the Winnipeg Jets.

New York is coming off a win on Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild, which saw them hang on 3-2 behind Ruslan Fedotenko's goal with just over six minutes to play.

It won't be easy tonight, with the Jets playoff hopes on life support. Winnipeg currently sits in 10th place in the East, eight points back of eighth-seeded Buffalo with just six games to play.

For the Rangers, it's all about beating Pittsburgh out for the top-seed. The Penguins suffered a surprising defeat last night at the hands of the Islanders, giving New York a little cushion. Up three points with only six games remaining, the Rangers could really put the hammer down with two points in Winnipeg.

Down the stretch, New York has really picked its game up going 4-1 in its last five contests. However, that level of play needs to be sustained because after tonight, the only team left on the schedule with playoff aspirations is Montreal.

It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out with the postseason set to begin in less than two weeks.
