Judging by fenwick/corsi alone it looks like the devils outplayed the rangers, but the rangers actually won the game pretty handily 4-1. Am I interpreting this wrong and, if so, how should these results be interpreted?
Score effects take hold. Teams trailing by more than two goals are more likely to take more frequent attempts

The Devils did outplay the Rangers handily. Just wasn't their day.
