NHL Playoffs; The First Week

With the first week of the Stanley Cup playoffs spiralling into suspension filled delirium, let's have a look at some of the numbers and stats and not the 'torpedo head shots' and 'turnbuckling'.

  • With 5 points in his first 3 games so far, Danny Briere is now the top playoff point getter since the lock-out. The list is: Briere 98, Zetterberg 96, Crosby 87, Datsyuk 82, Malkin 77.

  • Over their last 8 playoff games going back to Game 3 of last year's Final, the Vancouver Canucks have a 1 and 7 record. They've scored 8 goals in those 8 games. Roberto Luongo in that stretch has a 4.31 GAA and .862 Save Pct.

  • Tim Thomas on the other hand, has a 1.20 GAA and .963 Save Pct. since the very same Game 3 of the Finals.

  • Speaking of goaltenders, Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 6 goals in a game and 7 goals in another against Philadelphia. The last time he surrendered 6 was on Feb. 14, 2009 when Vesa Toskala and the Leafs beat him 6-2. The last time Fleury gave up 7 goals was over 6 years ago on Jan 28, 2006.

  • Philadelphia Flyers rookies Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn and Matt Read have a collective 6 goals and 12 points in 3 games.
