You were just waiting for me to come up with an answer here right? There's been 222 goals scored so far in the SEL in 42 games, that works out to be 5.29 goals a game, compared to the NHL's average of 5.14 in last year's regular season.

Interestingly, Frolunda has given up just 7 goals in 7 games which of course works out to be 1.00 goals a game, the rest of the league is averaging 2.79 goals against a game.

Lundqvist beat out the second best goalie in the league today, Rostislav Stana..or rather he was the 2nd best goalie, he's now third. Lundqvist is head and shoulders over everyone else at the moment:
