It's not a coincidence that only JVR and Briere put pucks in the net during the playoffs. They were the only two forwards they were consistently around the net.
If you want to score goals in this league, there is no secret. Go to the net. Find the rebounds, win battles.
Richards, Giroux, Hartnell, Versteeg, Leino et. al. need to take some lessons.
They are pretty goals. His goals are the result of soft hands. His goals against are due to the fact that he won't work both ends of the rink.
