The New York Rangers have seen their Eastern Conference lead disappear over the past several weeks as the team has struggled to win on the road. The Rangers have dropped their past six games away from Madison Square Garden and have not won a game in regulation on the road since November 7. The Rangers will visit the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night, which will be their fifth road game in their past six games.

  • The UNDER is 10-5 in the last 15 meetings between the Jets and Rangers.
