The Kings in the playoffs are scoring 3.52 goals per game on average 5 on 5 and allowing 1.01 - that differential is tops in the playoffs by a mile (and why the Kings are winning a ****-ton of games). Given that, possession becomes a good secondary indicator of how a series
vs. the Kings
will sort itself out long term.
NJ has the highest 5-on-5 F/A in the playoffs at 1.75, the Kings are second at 1.53.
How can the Kings have 3.52 GPG 5-on-5 when their total GPG is 2.85?
