Numbers for Nerds
The Anaheim Ducks secondary scoring machine started last night in Minnesota. Now we need to get the big engines going. The Winnipeg Jets have scored an impressive amount of goals through two games. The Ducks' play the past two games doesn't inspire anyone in thinking this will be a low-scoring affair.
Team Records: Ducks 1-1-0, Jets 2-0-0, Ducks 2011-12 Record vs Jets 0-1-0.
Team Leaders: Ducks – Jakob Silfverberg – 2 goals, Mathieu Perreault – 1 goal, Nick Bonino – 1 goal, Saku Koivu – 1 goal. Francois Beauchemin has the most assists on the club with two, but otherwise the team’s points leaders are Silfverberg, Perreault, and Bonino. Everybody’s favorite disaster, Cam Fowler, is already a team leading minus-3 in plus/minus – and yes, it isn’t a telling stat overall, but he’s currently a minus-60 in his career.
Jets – Through two games, the Jets have seven players with goals. Out front is Devin Setoguchi, Bryan Little, and Michael Frolik with two apiece. Big Dustin Byfuglien leads the team with four points. An interesting stat is Evander Kane’s 11 shots on goal through two games – if a guy with his skill keeps shooting that much, look out. (Note, Fowler leads our team with eight shots on goal.)
Goalies: Ducks – Viktor Fasth figures to start the second half of the road back-to-back. He’s 0-1 and has a 6.00 GAA and a .793 SV%. If Hiller goes after last night’s performance, he’s 1-0 with a 2.77 GAA and a .909 SV%.
Jets – Ondrej Pavelec should be in net in Winnipeg. He’s 2-0 and has a 3.50 GAA and a .905 SV%.
Power Play: Ducks – 1 for 5, 20.0 PP%, Bonino has the only PP goal.
Jets – 2 for 10, 20.0 PP%.
Penalty Kill: Ducks – 4 for 8, 50.0 PK%
Jets – 4 for 10, 60.0 PK%
