I don't see a consistent pattern but I do think it leans in favor of the theory that Ennis was successful because he was playing sheltered minutes (which doesn't mean he can't develop into a player who has success against better checkers). His 3-point game against Colorado and 2-point game against Montreal are noted.
I'm not sure why you come to that conclusion? I count 9 out of 17 of those points where I'd consider the defenders the top pairing for the opponent. If that's the case, it's indicative that opponents rolled D pairs against the three scoring lines, not that FES feasted on matchup problems.
