The table below shows ChanceBot.com's Power Rankings and Playoff Index for the NHL.
Power Rankings provide a calculation of relative team strength based on performance to date.
The strongest team is given a strength of 0.0, and all remaining team strengths are relative to this standard.
The difference between two teams' scores indicates the expected average goal differential in a series of neutral-ice games played between the two teams.
The Playoff Index for each team gives the probability (expressed as a percentage) that the team will make the playoffs.
These probabilities are calculated by simulating the remainder of the season while taking into account team strength, home-ice advantage, and historical trends.
|Team||Power Ranking||Playoff Index|
|New York Rangers||-1.54||68.70|
|New York Islanders||-1.92||38.98|
