Numbers For This Season

from John Kreiser of NHL.com,

0—Penalty minutes assessed in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 6-3 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 6. It was the only game of the season—and the first in the NHL since April 2, 2010—in which no penalties were called.

5—Overtime goals by Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos, the most by a player in one season since the NHL re-instituted overtime in 1983. He also had 55 goals in regulation to become the NHL’s first 60-goal scorer since Alex Ovechkin in 2007-08 and just the second since 1995-96.

12—Shootout wins by New Jersey, the most in the NHL—Minnesota was second with 11. The Devils did it with offense; they matched the record for best shooting percentage (15 or more tries) set by Dallas in 2005-06 by going 28-for-49 (57.1 percent). Montreal had the most shootout losses, with 12.

8.4—Average penalty minutes by Nashville in its 82 games this season, the fewest of any team in the NHL. The Predators took 689 penalty minutes, 10 fewer than second-place Detroit.


Now I can see Detroit has a chance in this first round!!!

Don’t know about you, but the standings columns on this article are mighty screwed up! Apparently the Pens took the East, and Chicago sits 13th in the West.
