players with who dominate a particular team
 
So I was watching the Preds-Nucks game at the start of this week, and they showed a graphic stating that Daryl Weiss has something like 6 of his 14 career points against the Preds, and it got me wondering about any other players over the years who have put up sckewed point totals against particular teams.

Anyone else have any interesting examples? or conversely, dominant players who were consistently shut down by a particular team?

edit: just realized the typo in the thread title ughh.

Goalies: Antero Niittymaki's 17-0 vs Thrashers and Osgood's 18-0 vs Lightning come to mind.

Most players have teams they do better at against than most but these 3 examples are just plain crazy outside of the norm.

I know Loungo always gets pumped up playing in Montreal but don't think he has a crazy stat split like the ones above.

Darryl Sittler vs the Flyers. And I mean beyond that one Freak Show of a night. He seemed to morph into a Giant Killer against the Black & Orange. Its an interesting phenomenom. Certain players do actually perform better against certain opponents. Maurice Richard against Detroit. Pretty much all of the Bruins against Montreal in the 70's. Pride, hatred, integrity, the intangibles....

Alexei Morosov absolutely owned Martin Brodeur for some reason - and by extension scored a lot against the Devils over the years - and didn't do much else with his NHL career.

Every player the Rangers ever traded away or gave up on because of moronic GMs? Mike Ridley for example.

Joe Sakic killed the Flames for years on end.

Moog, Neely, Brodeur and Leclair and every mediocre Quebecois backup goalie against the Habs.

Beville 04-19-2013 06:51 AM

Tim Thomas against Ottawa...

Heck, anyone from Boston who wears pillows on their legs really...

Big Phil 04-19-2013 05:40 PM

John Leclair would routinely torch the Habs after he was traded. It was almost expected.

SashaSemin28 04-19-2013 06:21 PM

Semin vs Carolina and Ottawa spring to mind

In 39 career regular season games against the Ottawa Senators, Dominik Hasek had a GAA of 1.49 and a .950 save percentage. And his record against them in the playoffs was slightly better.

Steve Yzerman scored a number of significant goals in his career on Patrick Roy, including his 500th.

Hammer Time 04-19-2013 07:41 PM

Tim Thomas vs the Northwest Division

14-8, .958 sv%, 7 SO (this stat-line includes the 2011 SCF)

He played just 5% of his games against NW teams, but got 19% of his career shutouts against them.

And the Canucks... Hejduk too.

Gretzky killed the Canucks all the time too. It was alway terrible when, at the beginning a game against Vancouver, it would be announced that Gretzky just needed X number of whatever to reach some arbitrary milestone... and he would always seem to do it. Even if the number he needed seemed ridiculously large.

thevil 04-19-2013 10:17 PM

Johan Franzen seems to save all of his goals for the Avs...

in the last couple of years, for some reason, it's been alex steen who has been the canucks killer.

i feel like every team thinks gretzky and sakic killed them, but man oh man, hejduk. people act like he was nothing without forsberg, but if they saw what he always did against vancouver in his prime, they'd think he was guy lafleur.

he hasn't done much against us in this decade, but there was a vintage hejduk / vancouver game a couple of years ago where we got a one goal lead, then he makes a beautiful pass on the PP to even it up, then we go up again, and he skates through two guys to set up david jones with bank pass off the end boards, then we score, before hejduk ties it up on the PP at the end of the 2nd. game eventually goes into OT and they win. this was the year when we destroyed the entire league and won the presidents trophy, but that one night, 35 year old hejduk killed us for (hopefully) the last time. http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...20102011,2,690

adam deadmarsh used to kill detroit in much the same way. and as mentioned above, neely owned patrick roy for a good stretch.

So in games where he didn't get a SO, he was only 7-8?

Go big or go home eh?

As a Canuck fan I can attest to the above. The peak Oilers really racked up points against the Peg, Canucks and Kings.

I have nightmares about Devon Setoguchi.
