Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Zero points in 3:46.

Keith Yandle: 1 point in 2:21.


The Coyotes were 1-4 this week. Radim Vrbata scored with Antoine Vermette and Yandle assisting. It's interesting to see David Rundblad getting more ice time than Yandle. We will have to see if that will continue.

Sidney Crosby: Zero points in 3:53.

Jussi Jokinen: Zero points in 3:07.

David Backes: 1 point in 2:58.


The Blues were dynamite as they went 3-8 this week. Backes, Alexander Steen and Brenden Morrow scored with Shattenkirk, Pietrangelo, Stewart and Berglund drawing assists. The Blues use a lot of players on the power play so their scoring should be spread around this season.

Patrick Marleau: 1 point in 11:04.

Joe Pavelski: 1 point in 11:09.

The Sharks were 2-12 this week as Marleau and rookie Tomas Hertl scored. Pavelski, Matt Irwin, Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic had assists.  Burns was a surprising 10th in ice time during the power play.

Matt Carle: Zero points in 2:04.



The Lightning were 1-6 this week with Purcell scoring and the duo of St. Louis and Stamkos assisting. St. Louis and Stamkos should be among the league leaders by the end of the season. Sami Salo will see first unit time when not hurt.

Mark Scheifele: 1 point in 9:52.
