The Rangers have the:
(1) longest current winning streak in the NHL (at 3 games);
(2) greatest positive goal differential (+3) of any team currently not in the playoffs (and there are two teams in the playoffs — Ottawa and Montreal — with negative differentials and one team — Nashville — with a lower but still positive differential);
(3) 10th best winning percentage in the NHL since the Olympic Break (.594); and
(4) and are one of only two teams (Boston being the other) that can make the playoffs with a losing home record (currently 16-17-6).
**On an unrelated, but certainly more important subject, I received two very welcomed and touching comments from close relatives of Steven McDonald on my post about the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award. Check them out.
