The 13th most GF (Goals scored) in the NHL. (228 goals scored)

This is a team that can compete and win. Hank has to play elite in the playoffs in which he is capable.

I understand the goal scoring is not the 1984 Edmonton Oilers but the goal scoring is enough to get the job done and more. This team needs someone step up in the playoffs and needs Hank to play elite in the playoffs.

It would be interesting to see where Montreal ranked in goal scoring in the NHL last year also where the past Stanley cup champs ranked in the NHL in goal scoring for that year.
Canes- 3rd in goals scored the year they won
Ducks- 6th

The Rangers are 13th but that's including 10 6+ goal games which was leading the league in 6+ goal games a couple weeks ago(dont know where to check this stat now). Meaning that besides those 10 games, the Rangers struggle to score in most other games. If you're only 13th after having the most blowout wins in the NHL it's not really a good thing.. This also skews goal differential.
