Numbers For Nerds

The Islanders threw $38.5 million for seven years at Andrew Ladd who has "rewarded" them with three(!) shot attempts in the past three games. None of those were on goal. Bernier has started the year with a stellar 2.06 GAA and a .933 SV%. He will get a chance to improve on those numbers against a slumping New York team tonight.
