Bantering Points: 2/27/17

News and notes for Monday, February 27th, 2017

After falling to the Columbus Blue Jackets by a 5-2 margin yesterday, the Rangers are down to only one game before this Wednesday's trade deadline. However, the Rangers historically prefer to make their acquisitions the day before the deadline in order to get the players to New York, so yesterday's game could have been the last game for a number of Blueshirts. Anyway, here are today's news and links:
