The Edmonton Oilers are the most efficient power play team in the NHL despite being 29th overall in the league standings.
The Oilers are converting their power play at a 22 percent rate, with Nashville second at 20.8 percent. "Our power play has got confidence, there’s no doubt about that. And what I like about it, is that it has a couple of different looks to it," coach Tom Renney said. "But we can’t just rely on it, especially when you seem to get minimal opportunities on the power play. But it’s something that you have to be ready for, and work on, and take great pride in both sides of those specialty teams." In a strange twist, the Montreal Canadiens, 28th overall in the NHL, are the top penalty-killing team. Interesting.
