Derek discusses Rangers live


At the bottom of the hour in five minutes, I’ll be discussing the importance of tonight’s game for the Rangers. Coming in losers of three straight, they need to win one of their final four games to clinch the playoffs. Facing former coach John Tortorella’s Blue Jackets presents another opportunity against a non-playoff team.

Considering how much they’ve struggled, can they finally wrap it up? Or will it continue to be the same old story? And what of Alain Vigneault’s unwillingness to change his lineup, excluding Dylan McIlrath and Oscar Lindberg.

Check out Derek Felix live on Hard Hits Network for a quick preview of tonight.

Full 15-minutes complete on the issues plaguing the team which have more to do with the coach who’s had a lot of success in his three seasons on Broadway. Check out the podcast below or on your time:
