Rangers Vs. Jets Preview: Rangers Look To Build On Saturday's Win

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

With a nine game home stand on the horizon, the New York Rangers will look to start out on the right foot tonight against the Winnipeg Jets.

The New York Rangers will have a big opportunity to string together a few wins over these next few weeks, as they are scheduled to play 10 of their next 11 games at Madison Square Garden. With the Rangers starting out the year mostly on the road, this upcoming home stand will make up for lost time on home ice. Couple that with a lighter schedule, and the Rangers have a real possibility to come away with handful of wins throughout the month of December. It'll start tonight as the Rangers take on a Winnipeg Jets team that has started to struggled as of late.

Cam Talbot will be making his second straight appearance on home ice, while Ondrej Pavelec will start in net for the Winnipeg Jets. Alain Vigneault will also be sticking with the same lineup as Saturday, which means John Moore and Taylor Pyatt will remain healthy scratches.

The full lineup for tonight's game can be found below.
