Rangers - 17
Mitchell and Hags inserted into lineup and outshoot WSH 32-21 and win game 6-3, start of 5 game win streak and November that turned around the season.
Mitchell was a special player along with how Hags
in which they helped the Rangers move away from extensive shot blocking and starting to resemble some sort of puck carrying/distribution
. The Rangers simply had more puck on stick with those two on the ice and their record showed that. Mitchell highest RelCorsi on Rangers last year, Hags 2nd, Dubi 3rd. Now with 2/3rds of best puck possessing players gone,
team is mediocre
Well said, except
despite Hags, they still do too much shot blocking + not enough puck movement
tney are not mediocre, but subpar
