Great teams have bad games.

I don't and never did. They are a Mickey Mouse team that nobody cares about it.

Sure, but they're not a great team. They're a good team.

I think they're a top 4 team in the East easily with chance of finishing 1st in conference. Ridiculous scoring and defensive depth.

Kershaw you're usually a fan of advanced stats, why are you overlooking them in favour of the Devils?

They are not outshooting their opponents, their Fenwick when close is average (50.88, 13th. NYR: 54.04, 4th).

It's not as dramatic as for the Hawks and especially the Ducks, but they are riding percentages that will come down in the end.

Still a PO team, mind you, but certainly not an elite team.

Yeah exactly. They're good but not great.

I hadn't checked up on them in awhile. The Rangers greatly outchanced the Isles and Caps, two terrible teams which might've inflated their totals. Even then, their fenwick is still middle of the pack.

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.

The 2nd period started out 2-1 Avs. It is now 6-4 Avs at the end of the 2nd.

Wrong Streit. Brian Strait hurt his ankle. Mark Streit is just fine.

The Devils are coming back down to earth. They can go on a win streak they have a pretty soft schedule, but still they got 1 point between the Isles and Sens and got embarrassed by the Isles 5-1.

Also Kershaw if the Rangers played back to back games like that you'd be all over them.

So 2 of the 3 lowest scoring teams (3rd being Kings) in the league combine to score 11 goals in a game between them.
