The New York Rangers complete the Western Canada portion of the 5-game road trip
with a meeting against the Vancouver Canucks
The Blueshirts aim for a 4-game road win streak, something it did only once last year (5 GP - Nov. 30-Dec. 18).
The Rangers have allowed 1 or fewer goals in each of their first 5 wins of a season for the 3rd time in franchise history.
Tonight will be Barclay Goodrow’s 500th career NHL game. He will become the 20th undrafted player currently active in the NHL to play in 500 or more games.
New York has recorded a power play goal in 6 of its first 7 games.
The team’s 30.4 percent power play percentage ranks 6th in the NHL and plus-7 special teams goal differential ranks 5th.
The Rangers have been over 50% in the faceoff circle in 5 of 7 games. Their 53.9 faceoff percentage ranks tied for 5th in the NHL. (Thank you, Mike Peca!)
The Blueshirts have allowed the 2nd fewest (tied) goals in the NHL with 13 and 2nd fewest GA/GP (1.86).
The Rangers have allowed the fewest shots per game in the NHL (24.9).
The Rangers have scored a combined 8 goals in the 2nd period over the last 3 games.
Their 10 second period goals this season are tied for the 4th most in the NHL.
In the 3rd period, New York has allowed the fewest goals in the league (1).
33.9% of all points recorded this season have come from defensemen, the highest mark in the NHL.
Against Vancouver, the Blueshirts are 2-1-1 in their last 4 matchups and 6-4-1 in their last 11 contests against them.
Artemi Panarin has points (4G-11A) in 9 of his last 10 games against the Canucks.
The Rangers are 3-0-0 against Pacific Division teams thus far.
GOOD MORNING, everyone! 🌟
I thought it would be good to get the thread going early.
See you guys later! Should be a good one.
