The Numbers Don't Lie

In the New York Times article on yesterday's loss, Dave Caldwell offers some real ugly numbers for the Rangers offense...

"In their last four games, only one of which they have won, the Rangers have taken 139 shots and scored only 7 goals, and they are 1 for 12 on power plays. Rangers Coach Tom Renney says his team needs to start crashing the net more often, poking at rebounds."

...wow Tom do you think?

...7 goals on 139 shots is atrocious. For all you number geeks, that's a 5% shooting percentage. Like I said in an earlier post 'Shooter Tutor.'

This team is awful right now. I agree the only option right now is the shooter tutor.

I still have faith in this team. If you think they're awful go root for the islanders or devils

This team has been winning on above average defense and outstanding goaltending. However, there last 3 losses ( isalnders, dallas, and florida) both goalies let in a weak goal through the 5 hole, which all turned out to be the difference in getting a point or a Win. The offense needs to start scoring to help out the amazing effort by both goalies or this team will start to drop in the standings.
