Interesting stat, if Getzlaf was scoring at his career avg shooting %, he would have 21 goals this year. If he was scoring at the same % he shot at last year, he would have 29 goals.

Almost always when a player has a career best/worst goal scoring year due to an abnormally high/low shooting percentage they'll bounce back to about their career average the next year. Which is a good sign for Getzlaf.

Ryan, on the other hand is shooting at his career average and has taken 75 less shots than last year. He needs to work on not being so invisible most of the time and generally chances consistently. I thought he was pretty good tonight but he's in one of his goal scoring disappearing stretches with only 3 goals in his last 13 games.
