Giroux Loves the Helpers

Monday, January 16, 2017


As we cruise through the middle of January we have a couple of new thresholds broken by pair of forwards representing the City of Brotherly Love.

 

Claude Giroux is your power play assists leader with 17, and he's also the first player to crack the 20-point plateau as he sits with 21. His teammate Brayden Schenn meanwhile has become the first player to hit the double-digit goal mark with 11 to lead the pack.

 

What's interesting to note about them is that the Flyers will only play two games this week as their bye week kicks in. Meaning their leads are tenuous at best as 15 teams will play four times through Sunday. If you want to get an early start, look to Buffalo, Dallas and Tampa Bay as they all play on both Monday and Tuesday.

ANAHEIM

Cam Fowler: 11 points (5 goals) in 154:57 of power play time this season

Corey Perry: 15 points (2 goals) in 143:18

Ryan Kesler: 15 points (7 goals) in 140:49

Sami Vatanen: 11 points (2 goals) in 136:54

Ryan Getzlaf: 13 points (2 goals) in 129:41

Antoine Vermette: 6 points (3 goals) in 86:41

 

The Ducks went 1/10 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 31/145 or 21.4%. Mark it 1/21 with the extra-man over the last two weeks for the Ducks. This has been the way all season long for them, stretches of both great success and failure. Fowler leads the way in time and with seven of the 17 shots on net over the span, indicating that opponents have been particularly efficient in defending Anaheim's man-advantage.

 

 

ARIZONA

Oliver Ekman-Larsson: 12 points (5 goals) in 170:26 of power play time this season

Radim Vrbata: 8 points (2 goals) in 119:44

Martin Hanzal: 6 points (3 goals) in 104:25

Alex Goligoski: 4 points in 90:52

Max Domi: 4 points (a goal) in 69:54

Tobias Rieder: 4 points (2 goals) in 64:34

 

The Coyotes went 1/6 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 18/124 or 14.5%. Arizona has now gone 2/12 over the last two weeks, which increased their season's efficiency rate by a whole one-tenth of a percent. That it would be so meager is actually rather impressive, as is Domi's place in the top-six despite not having played since Dec. 8th.

 

 

BOSTON

Torey Krug: 12 points (2 goals) in 149:55 of power play time this season

David Krejci: 9 points (5 goals) in 141:26

Patrice Bergeron: 6 points (4 goals) in 133:01

Brad Marchand: 11 points (3 goals) in 118:16

Ryan Spooner: 7 points (2 goals) in 117:19

David Backes: 4 points (2 goals) in 107:04

 

The Bruins went 5/13 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 24/144 or 16.7%. Krug led the way with two goals and four points during the week of excellence, as Marchand also picked up a pair of helpers. Bergeron, Krejci, and Frank Vatrano put the remaining pucks home.

 

 

BUFFALO

Rasmus Ristolainen: 16 points (a goal) in 153:03 of power play time this season

Sam Reinhart: 11 points (5 goals) in 144:44

Kyle Okposo: 15 points (6 goals) in 142:08

Matt Moulson: 12 points (7 goals) in 113:47

Ryan O'Reilly: 13 points (3 goals) in 106:05

Brian Gionta: 1 point in 78:25

 

The Sabres went 1/8 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 29/136 or 21.3%. Mark it 4/20 over the last two weeks on the man-advantage for Buffalo. O'Reilly led with three points (all helpers) as Jack Eichel scored two goals. Okposo and Reinhart potted the other two markers, and Ristolainen joined the trio with a pair of points himself over that span.

 

 

CALGARY

Sean Monahan: 9 points (4 goals) in 144:34 of power play time this season

Mark Giordano: 10 points (2 goals) in 132:41

Johnny Gaudreau: 10 points (2 goals) in 124:38

T.J. Brodie: 6 points (a goal) in 122:29

Dougie Hamilton: 7 points in 106:44

Troy Brouwer: 8 points (3 goals) in 104:25

 

The Flames went 1/8 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 30/148 or 20.3%. After a pair of excellent weeks on the man-advantage the Flames cooled off a bit but they're still 8/31 over the last three weeks, which ranks tied for the third-most goals over that span.

 

 

CAROLINA

Jeff Skinner: 12 points (5 goals) in 102:04 of power play time this season

Victor Rask: 7 points (3 goals) in 100:48

Noah Hanifin: 7 points (2 goals) in 95:55

Justin Faulk: 5 points (a goal) in 95:26

Teuvo Teravainen: 7 points (3 goals) in 91:26

Lee Stempniak: 4 points (2 goals) in 88:16

 

The Hurricanes went 0/6 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 21/122 or 17.2%. Carolina's man-advantage has cooled off of late, going 1/19 over the last three weeks. They don't lack for talent, but they are lacking for opportunities of late. Which may indicate that they're having trouble keeping the puck in the first place, or aren't playing very dynamically.

 

 

CHICAGO

Patrick Kane: 13 points (2 goals) in 173:07 of power play time this season

Artemi Panarin: 14 points (7 goals) in 159:51

Duncan Keith: 10 points (a goal) in 159:37

Brent Seabrook: 10 points (2 goals) in 140:42

Artem Anisimov: 7 points (4 goals) in 119:12

Jonathan Toews: 7 points (3 goals) in 105:04

 

The Blackhawks went 2/10 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 26/140 or 18.6%. Brian Campbell, Keith and Kane put each put a puck home each as Panarin joined the latter two with a pair of points to lead the team over the last two weeks. Such as it is for Chicago, the big boys are either clicking or not much is going on.

 

 

COLORADO

Tyson Barrie: 6 points in 137:39 of power play time this season

Nathan MacKinnon: 7 points (2 goals) in 130:40

Mikko Rantanen: 7 points (3 goals) in 117:27

Matt Duchene: 6 points (2 goals) in 110:39

Jarome Iginla: 6 points (2 goals) in 102:41

Gabriel Landeskog: 2 points (both goals) in 82:89

 

The Avalanche went 0/6 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 18/138 or 13%. The sun continues to set on the Avs this season, and it appears more and more likely a shake-up is about to occur as both Duchene and Landeskog are on the trade block. While prospects like A.J. Greer do give reason for excitement, he, or anyone else, don't qualify as reasons to believe their man-advantage will suddenly turn around either.

 

 

COLUMBUS

Zach Werenski: 16 points (3 goals) in 127:25 of power play time this season

Alexander Wennberg: 18 points (2 goals) in 120:25

Nick Foligno: 17 points (8 goals) in 119:40

Cam Atkinson: 19 points (9 goals) in 119:38

Sam Gagner: 14 points (6 goals) in 115:15

Brandon Saad: 2 points (a goal) in 71:34

 

The Blue Jackets went 2/11 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 33/127 or 26%. Mark it 5/25 over the last two weeks on the man-advantage. Werenski, Wennberg, Foligno and Seth Jones share the lead in points with two each, but it's Atkinson who has the only two goals in the bunch.

 

 

DALLAS

Tyler Seguin: 16 points (7 goals) in 154:07 of power play time this season

John Klingberg: 10 points (2 goals) in 147:51

Jamie Benn: 12 points (6 goals) in 140:57

Patrick Eaves: 11 points (8 goals) in 132:22

Jason Spezza: 13 points (a goal) in 115:26

Devin Shore: 3 points in 91:43

 

The Stars went 1/8 on the power play during the 14th week of action, bringing the season's sum to 26/153 or 17%. Dallas has gone 3/14 with the man-advantage over the couple of weeks. Klingberg and Spezza lead with three points, as Seguin Eaves and Cody Eakin contributed a point each.
