Road-loving Rangers open trip against Kings

LOS ANGELES -- The game between the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night features two struggling teams in very different circumstances. While the Rangers are trying to improve their effort with an eye on the rapidly approaching postseason, the Kings face another must-win game to prop up their flickering playoff hopes.

Safely nestled into a playoff position, the Rangers (45-25-4) are likely happy to start a three-game California road trip given their sterling 26-9-1 record away from Madison Square Garden. They enter the game riding a two-game losing streak, dropping divisional games to the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders before heading west.

The New Yorkers have been mediocre down the stretch by posting 4-4-2 record over the last 10 games and short of a big finish, they will open the playoffs as the first wild-card qualifier in the Eastern Conference. Captain Ryan McDonagh is not concerned with their playoff seeding or their unusually poor home record of 19-16-3, he just needs to see more of the play that had his team close to the top of the Metropolitan Division most of the season.
