I was really wondering if this was thread worthy after seeing it on NBC now, but I think that's pretty amazing. Anyone know the Rangers and NHL records for consecutive games of 30+ shots?

Adding another finisher who can convert at a higher rate than the current group would be a spectacular thing for this team.

Still a lot of low percentage shots in there (especially by Callahan and Richards at times), but good progress being made.

I think they create good opportunities. Every team has a lot of low percentage shots.

Yup, the Rangers are ranked 29th in the league in shooting percentage. The Rangers have plenty of players who are adept at passing the puck (Zucc, Brassard, Richards, Stepan, even Kreider has shown some decent passing ability). Now they need to focus on acquiring some finishers.

That's why I think it's funny when people use that stat to predict wins.

I also wonder how big that shot differential would be without that SJ game.

I mean, for the most part, it matches up pretty well.

At the bottom, Toronto&Colorado have had puck luck, Caps are living off of losers points

At the top, we've had back puck luck, Devils have bad shooters, Jets have bad goaltending

If you recognize that some teams are special cases, it's pretty acurate

I feel like "bad shooters" kind of debunks the stat. If teams can have bad shooters it doesn't seem like a special case. Seems like that's a legit hole in the stat.

I mean shot differential is a pretty big factor in determining ROW and goal differential. Using this years numbers only. Obviously not everything lines up perfectly but find something better that can be used that doesn't include goals for or against in it (obviously can't predict wins based on looking at goal differential since goals are what gives you the win.)

So it explains less than half of the ROW? Seems like a decent but not overwhelming amount. Maybe I'm just bitter about being an outlier.

0.45 is a pretty big correlation for one single simple stat in a complex game that can have huge amounts of variance based on bounces, penalty calls, and the like.
