The Rangers have a better record playing Torts' style than when they're not.

I know I'm someone who has suggested he be fired, but these stats definitely made me do a double take. Sometimes the eyes aren't flawless.

Also, we SERIOUSLY need to be better on the road. 11 goals in 7 games Gaborik has 0 goals and 1 assist in 7 road games. Richards has 1 goal and 2 assists. Nash has 1 goal and 2 assists, but only in 5 games, so it's not horrible like the other two - still needs improvement.

32 goals in 11 home games. Pretty good offensive numbers, like 2.95 GPG.
Unless Tortorella's style is "score more goals" then I think the correlation is a stretch. They're #1 in league in goals against on the road with 18 scored. I think the 11 goals and 7.7% PP on the road tells the real story. Team just can't generate any offense and struggles to get into the game mentally. That, IMO, isn't a system issue. It's a compete level issue.
