The Rangers are having a good season. They may repeat their past success, but it's too early to tell. Now NY sits third in the Capital One standings with 64 points after 50 games. Sure, they're in the playoff zone. Note that the team does not lose in the main time in four meetings. Before the pause for the NHL All-Star Game, they got two wins with one defeat in overtime. After the break, in overtime, they beat Calgary with a score of 5-4.
Vancouver, on the other hand, is no wow. They again are in danger of missing the playoffs, occupying sixth place in the Pacific Division standings with 44 points after 50 meetings, out of the playoff zone. As a reminder, there was a recent change on the Canucks coach staff, with Rick Tocchet taking over for Bruce Boudreau. Under his guidance, Vancouver played four games - two victories and two losses. After the break, they lost to New Jersey in overtime, 4-5.
