The Rangers KZB line is hot and improving the team’s playoff chances
What a game last night for the KZB line as they combined for 3 goals and 5 assists led by Chris Kreider’s 2 goal and 3 point night. The Rangers have inserted themselves into the playoff picture on the strength of this line that has totaled 44 points in the last dozen games.
Money Puck is a website that calculates not only odds to make the playoffs, but also game predictions, expected goals, and more. It should be a staple for any hockey fan. Based on their calculations the Rangers playoff chances took a huge jump from 17% to 23.1%. That’s a nice pickup of 6.1 points.
The Rangers next game is Friday against Carolina and per Money Puck the Canes are favored to win by 58.4%. I’m pretty sure the Rangers don’t care about the odds.
