For those of you keeping score at home, that means Tkachuk scored powerplay goals in the playoffs at one-fifth his regular season rate. Not good.
What sort of statistical mind**** is this? You compare his PPGPG in playoffs with his GPG in regular season? Tkachuk's PPGPG in regular season is 0.18. His posteason PPG rate drops by a half, not 4/5ths (not that halving his production is a good thing). His PP drop is worse than his ES drop, though (0.26 to 0.22).
