Numbers for Nerds

The Edmonton Oilers have scored 24 goals over the course of their last six games, most notably a 7-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes followed immediately by a 6-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators. If the Edmonton offense has found their groove and is ready to look like the Edmonton offense of last year, the Ducks will need John Gibson to be as stellar as always. Side note, John Gibson is currently 29-17-7. He has never had a 30-win season in his career.
