The second half is here

While January did not go the way the Rangers or their fans wanted, they still sit in a prime position at first in the Metropolitan Division. But, as the Rangers know and players have stated over the past few years, getting into the Stanley Cup Playoffs is the primary goal.

In a division as competitive as the Metropolitan, every game is going to matter, and if the Rangers are going to stay at the top and become a true contender in the East, they need these three things to happen, along with some other unexpected catalysts. New York has the pieces to go on a run, but it still is unknown how far they can go.

We're about to find out a lot about the Blueshirts starting Monday. Buckle up.
