Tyler Seguin Has Been On Quite The Roll

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A blue-chipper in Big D, Landeskog coming on for Avs, and a rare puck possession night for an enforcer; Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking.

HEROES

Tyler Seguin – The Stars’ game-breaker scored another pair of goals in a 3-2 win over Edmonton, giving him 10 goals in the last nine games, and a league-leading 17 goals on the season.

Since arriving in Dallas last season, Seguin ranks third in the league with 52 goals and is tied for second with 110 points in 101 games and he does a lot of his damage at even strength, with 38 of his goals coming at even strength (tied for second) and Seguin and linemate Jamie Benn are among the league’s most efficient even-strength scorers.

Among players with at least 500 5-on-5 minutes since the start of last season:

Afternoon Line- Pierre LeBrun On The Edmonton Oilers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

...are trades the answer right now? As another rival executive suggested, is the smartest thing at this point not just to take a knee and get in the lottery chase given this year’s draft class?

On the surface, it’s probably what makes the most sense. But eight years of hockey hell has also eroded some of the goodwill (loyalty?) of the fan base in Edmonton. Can you afford to take a knee and not risk further brand alienation? Or would fans in Edmonton, a pretty savvy hockey community, understand that it would be worth it given the draft class?

Playing The Boards

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jamie McLennan of TSN,

I've noticed - more than ever this season - that there's been lots of goals and scoring chances created by pucks missing the net, off the end boards and coming back in front of the net (video link here)

With the nets being more shallow and blocked shots and lanes getting to the net, teams - particularly their defencemen - are looking for set plays and ways to get the puck down low for a scoring chance. 

Earlier this season, I watched Cory Schneider allow a goal where the shot went wide and the puck hit the yellow dasher. It came back so fast that by the time he reacted, he actually knocked it into his own net. 

Now those plays happen, especially if the goaltender isn't sharp that night. But in today's game, it's becoming more of a normal play.

The Colorado Avalanche Have Won Four Out Of Five Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

We've asked before, but is this finally the turnaround the Colorado Avalanche have been waiting for?

The Avs rallied from a 3-0 first-period deficit to beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-3 in overtime Tuesday night, their fourth win in five games. For the second straight game, goalie Reto Berra was pulled in favor of Calvin Pickard, and just like Saturday night versus Carolina, Pickard backstropped the Avs to the comeback win.

Daniel Briere's overtime goal was a lucky one, his centering pass going off Coyotes center Martin Hanzal, but you figure the Avs are due a few breaks after what has been an incredibly tough opening two months. Are they on the road back? We shall see.
