Bryce Salvador, Coming out of Nowhere.

Just how amazing has the point scoring exploits of Bryce Salvador been, unprecedented. Entering this season's playoffs Salvador had a total of 4 points in 50 career playoff games. Through five games of the Stanley Cup Finals he has 14 points in 23 games. Salvador's career high scoring season was in 2008/09 with 16 points in 76 games. Has such a low-scoring defenseman ever had such a ridiculous scoring output in the playoffs? Not even close. No other defender in NHL history whose career high was less than 30 points has scored 14 points in a playoff year.
