First Half Numbers

from John Kreiser of NHL.com,

4 -- Teams that have not lost a point when leading after two periods. Carolina and Pittsburgh have the best perfect record at 9-0-0; the Hurricanes are also the only unbeaten team when leading after one period (4-0-0).

7 -- Goals allowed by the Boston Bruins' penalty-killers, the fewest in the League. Boston is tops with a 91.9 percentage, and its PK unit has chipped in with three shorthanded goals as well.

8 -- Power-play goals by the Colorado Avalanche, the fewest in the NHL. Colorado has scored as many power-play goals as Pittsburgh's James Neal, who's tops among all players with eight.

.871 -- Save percentage by St. Louis' three goaltenders, the poorest in the NHL. The Blues have allowed 69 non-shootout goals despite permitting a League-low 23.3 shots per game.
