The Rangers are winless in their last six games at home (0-4-2) and have been outscored 23 to 11.
Rick Nash said last night that the Rangers try to make "cute plays" at home while on the road they play in straight lines and make simple plays.
Nash said that the Rangers talk about playing in straight lines and getting pucks on net while on the bench and need to find a way to simplify their game at home.
Alain Vigneault repeated that the ice surface is the same dimensions at home or on the road and that for 30 minutes the Rangers played well at home.
He said that they can't overthink the situation but they need to find a way to put 60 minutes together on home ice.

The Rangers have four games left at MSG this season, against the Islanders, Penguins (2) and Flyers.
Adam Rotter: There are just these prolonged lapses that happen at the Garden where the Rangers lose their momentum and lose their way. They started great last night, they were pretty good in the third period but that second period, as well as the second half of the first, were just abysmal. They seem to play at one speed to start the game and then stay there as the other team adapts, makes changes and lifts their level of play. They do make adjustments and raise their level but it seems to take them a while. This is a talented team that should be able to hold leads on home ice and maybe they can find a way to start doing that over the next four games.
