Numbers for Nerds

So, Winnipeg's offense is stupid good, per the Stat Pack above. A power play at 25% and their leading scorer with more assists than our leading scorer has points. Moral of the story, do not make silly mistakes defensively. You will be picking the puck out of your net and you will lose if you turn the puck over or if you take too many penalties. Hockey gods be with the Ducks for this one.
