Agreed, although it has seemed like the Rangers haven't been doing as well offensively lately. The main reason is Brad Richards' troubles (and of course the PP).

Since January 6, Richards has played in 12 games and only has 3 points (1g, 2a). In that time, the Rangers have scored more than 2 goals in half (6) of those games. Three of those games were games in which Richards had a point. Therefore, in the 9 pointless games, the Rangers only have 3 games with 3 or more goals.

In fact, the Rangers have had 6 games in the entire season where Richards had a point and they scored less than 3 goals. Three of those games were the first three games of the season.
