Numbers For Nerds

Among defense and offensive problems, the Dallas Stars have also hit a bump in the road when it comes to special teams.

They are currently sitting at 16th in the league (17.1%) on the power play, as opposed to 4th place (22.1%) in the past 2015-16 season. On the PK, they are currently sitting at 28th (76.4%), as opposed to 10th place (82.3%) in the past 2015-16 season.

Yikes.
