Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 28-31-13 Rangers 'should have' 31 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 18 good wins vs 4 bad losses. They have won 31% of their road games and were expected to win 37%. At home they have a 47% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 48%. Losers of 4 in a row they have a 42.4% chance of seeing that extend to 6 straight. In the pre-season, the Rangers were expected to be a below average team (#19) in power rank, and they have managed to be even worse. In simulations where the Rangers played every other team (neutral ice in playoffs) they won just 37.4% of the time (#28 in the league). Their peak rank was #19 in the league back on 6/11.

Their average goal differential is -0.57 which ranks #26 in the league, which is the same as how they rank in points. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #18 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #29 in road games. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -1.43 which ranks them #28 over this stretch, slightly worse than the season overall.
