Last week, I introduced my Offensive Statistical Contribution Rating (OSCR) statistic.  It uses a compilation of offensive  statistics to measure which players had the biggest impact on team’s chances at winning.  A more detailed breakdown can be found here.

Here are the OSCR ratings from Rangers victory over Hearts.

Player OSCR
Barrie McKay 2.60
Joe Garner 2.25
James Tavernier 1.39
Kenny Miller 1.33
Jon Toral 0.87
Martyn Waghorn 0.86
Joe Dodoo 0.54
Lee Hodson 0.53
David Bates 0.49
Clint Hill 0.40
Josh Windass 0.20
Jason Holt 0.06
Jamie Barjonas 0.06

In addition to the match winning goal, Barrie McKay added six key passes for 0.69 Expected Assists.

He also chipped in two Secondary Shot Assists & a team high nine Controlled Zone Entries.

Tavernier & Miller’s impact is even more impressive considering they did not get on the official scoresheet.  Tavernier had three key passes for 0.16 Expected Assists, three Secondary Shot Assists, two shots, & seven Controlled Zone Entires.  Kenny Miller got the assist on Garner’s goal & had three key passes for 0.37 Expected Assists.  He also added a Secondary Shot Assist & three Establishing Passes (basically the pass that sets up a Secondary Shot Assist)

For those more visually inclined, here’s the OSCR ratings in graph form
