The Canucks and Rangers came into this season with similar expectations.

In terms of shot metrics, Vancouver and New York are basically on par with one another. The Canucks average 50.8 shot attempts per 60 (CF/60) and give up 57.7 shot attempts per 60 (CA/60), giving them a Corsi rating (CF%) of 46.8%. The Rangers generate 53.8 CF/60 but allow 62.4 CA/60, giving them a 46.3 CF%.

The biggest difference between these two teams is the pace they play at. Typically, Ranger games are back-and-forth affairs with a high volume of expected goals (xG) and shot attempts. The Canucks play a below average pace in both shot attempts and expected goals.
