Well yes, but the Rangers has also played Boston and Pittsburgh twice. It works both ways.
When the two teams matched up the Rangers were better, had more chances, but lost the game. Re-play that game 10 times and the Rangers go 6-3-1. The Devils got lucky, but luck averages out.
OK so the Devils are almost as good as the Rangers when tied, but they are a lot worse when they are trailing. I think the Close stat is a better reflection of a teams' performance, but to each and his own.
