At the end of one period, there’s no score between the Rangers and Islanders. Surprisingly, it was the strong play of the new third line for the Blueshirts that dominated the action. Look at the performance of Tanner Glass, Oscar Lindberg and J.T. Miller at even strength. It’s not a misprint. They were the best line.
Notice too Dylan McIlrath at the top of the chart with a plus-10 shot differential. He is usually on the plus-side of the ledger. While I’m not a big Corsi advocate, it doesn’t lie. What you watch with your own eyes is pretty accurate.
