TEWKSBURY, MA -- As we make the turn down the final stretch, a busy week awaits both Rangers teams. The teams combine for a total of six games over the next six days.
"Ryan [Blair] and I are excited about the upcoming week," said Rangers Premier head coach Rich DeCaprio. "Each game brings a different challenge for us, and we're going to learn a lot about our guys this week."
Wednesday 2/15 - The week begins with the Premier team wrapping up their season series with the Bandits. Despite being ahead of the Bandits in the Boston Division standings, the Rangers have had their struggles with their rival this season. The Bandits have won 2 of the first 3 matchups.
Saturday 2/18 - The big matchup comes on Saturday night against the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers. Philadelphia is flying high, having won 16 of their last 17 games. This weekend's tilt has been tabbed the HockeyTV Game of the Week, which will make it free to watch for all the Rangers fans following along at home.
Wednesday 2/15 - The Elite team's week also begins by wrapping up the season series with the Boston Bandits. After dropping the first two matchups of the season by the scores of 7-2 and 6-2, the Rangers knocked off the Bandits last time out, 5-4 in overtime.
Saturday 2/18 - The Jr. Flyers Elite team rides the bus up with the Premier team this weekend, and brings with them one of the best records in the South Conference. The Rangers will have to be ready from the drop of the puck, after knocking off Philadelphia 4-2 on the road in October.
Sunday 2/19 - A quick turnaround on Sunday brings the Warriors to town, and a team that the Rangers haven't seen since September. Valley won that matchup 3-0, and the two teams are set to face-off for another pair of games down the stretch.
Monday 2/20 - The final game of the week sends the Rangers to Walpole, with a chance to sweep the season series. The Rangers have won the first three matchups by scores of 4-3 (OT), 4-3, and 2-1.
