Stats To Chew On

Michael Del Zotto is a team-leading plus-5

Michael Del Zotto is a team-leading plus-5

- It would be folly to call tonight’s game against San Jose a must-win, but it’s true that only one team outside the top-eight on November 1st has made the playoffs in the last two seasons.  New York currently has nine points, three behind the eighth-place Tampa Bay Lightning.  Of course, the Blueshirts have also played fewer games than any team in the league and endured a whirlwind road trip to open the season.

- Only Columbus has fewer wins than the Rangers.

- The Blueshirts are the only team in the league without a home win.  Only two teams have fewer than two home wins.

- Only the New York Islanders have scored fewer goals than the Rangers.

- Former Rangers that have more points than anyone on this year’s squad: Jaromir Jagr (11), Vinny Prospal (10), Pascal Dupuis (9), Nik Antropov (9), P.A. Parenteau (9).

- Notable NY Rangers without a goal this season: Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Wojtek Wolski, Derek Stepan, Erik Christensen.

- Only Buffalo, Edmonton, San Jose and Los Angeles have allowed fewer goals than the Rangers.

- After going 9-3 in the shootout last season, the Blueshirts are 0-2 this year.  New York wouldn’t have made the playoffs without the nine extra points picked up in the skills competition a year ago.

- The Rangers rank 24th in offense, 20th on the power play, eighth in team defense and seventh on the penalty kill.

- Marian Gaborik is on pace to score 46 goals.  He had 22 a year ago.

- As he has since the beginning of the year, Michael Del Zotto still leads the Rangers in plus/minus with a plus-5 rating.  Steve Eminger is a team-worst minus-7.

- Brandon Dubinsky has 41 penalty minutes this season, fourth in the league.

- Dan Girardi has fallen to second in the NHL in average ice-time with 28:12 per game.  James Wisniewski took the top spot after returning from suspension, but he’s only played three games for Columbus.  Ryan McDonagh ranks 13th in the league with 25:12 of average ice-time.

- Ryan Callahan has 37 shots on goal this season, which puts him in the NHL’s top-12.

- New York still hasn’t outshot an opponent in a game this season.  The Blueshirts rank 29th in shots per game with 23.8 and have yielded the most shots on game with an average of 33.1.

- The Rangers have scored only four first period goals, the fewest in the league, and four second period goals, the second-fewest in the league.

- New York has cut back on penalties, but still leads the league with an average of 18.67 penalty minutes per game.
