I don't think this stat tells the WHOLE story, but it just goes to show that this young team is DEF headed in the right direction. Particularly, such a young defense that plays so well. I honestly think a legit #1 line (aka - the elusive front line center next to Gabby) could vault this team to serious contenders within a year or two..
I agree... this is an impressive stat that cannot be overlooked. This team has to be considered one of the better teams in the NHL that can realistically make a run at the cup this year.

Look at these stats compared to the rest of the NHL and tell me this is not a team that can make a run in the playoffs

Goal differential: 4th best in the NHL
Goals scored (GF): 6th most in the NHL
Goals against (GA): 7th least in the NHL

Very impressive..
