Great week of hockey in the Atlantic, and tons of huge stories.
The New Jersey Devils are atop the standings so we begin our Journey there...
The Devils are 4-3-1. They have recorded 9 points.
Brian Gionta is money. He has 12 points to lead the team.
But what is going on with Mr. Brodeur? He has not been his normal lights out self. From getting booed at home, and then getting shelled in Ottawa, Marty is a mess this year.
Looking at the goalie rankings
Brodeur is 27th in the league. He is giving up 3.2 goals a game, and his save percentage is a muddy .895... which sucks.
Powerplay: 15.2% (19th in NHL)
Penalty Kill: 79.3% (21st)
PowerPlay: 19.1% (11th)
Penalty Kill: 80.0% (20th)
Powerplay: 19.6% (10th)
Penalty Kill: 76.4% (28th)
Their leading scorer is Mike Knuble...with 7 points. (Michel Ouellet has 7 points, too). They don't have a single player on the plus-side of the plus-minus stat category. Holy hell.
The Sabres bitch-slapped them 9-1 on national televion on Monday. They lost 4-1 in Tampa Bay. They lost to Florida at home.
Powerplay: 7.3% (5 for 44) (28th in NHL) WHATTTT?
Penalty Kill: 83.7% (15th)
