The first week of the NHL's regular season has provided plenty of "buzz" fodder, be it good, bad, or otherwise. But in the interest of objectivity, let's let the numbers do the talking. Here are the cold, hard stats behind week 1 in the Pacific Division:
11 - teams in the NHL with as many or fewer goals than San Jose's Tomas Hertl
46.2 - Hertl's shooting percantage, with 6 goals on 13 shots
15/20 - players on San Jose who have tallied points through the first three games
2 - point total of Los Angeles Kings' leading scorers Jeff Carter, Jake Muzzin, Matt Frattin, and Anze Kopitar
28 - teams with fewer goals against than the Edmonton Oilers
6 - goals the Phoenix Coyotes have scored through three games

12:54 - average ice time of Calgary's Sean Monahan, lowest among players with at least 3 points on the season
+2 - shorthanded goal differential for the Vancouver Canucks, who have killed all 15 penalties faced through their first three games while scoring two shorthanded goals of their own
0 - powerplay goal differential for the Edmonton Oilers, who have scored as many powerplay goals (3) as they have conceded shorthanded markers. That's two more than they gave up in 48 games last season
54.6% - penalty kill percentage of the Anaheim Ducks, who have given up 5 goals on their first 11 shorthanded opportunities
19 - powerplay opportunities for the Phoenix Coyotes through three games, good for tops in the NHL
1 through 8 - spots held by Pacific Division players for Team Goals Against, led by Ales Hemsky who has been on the ice for 9 of Edmonton's 15 goals against this season
