And to that Montreal fan, Kuba-Cowen played together on the PK but never at even strength.
Colorado was 15th in GAA, 12th in PK %. Jan Hejda and Ryan O'Byrne led Avalanche defensemen in shorthanded ice time (3:03, 2:52) by a lot, and both started the whopping majority of their shifts in their own zone. O'Byrne had the smallest percentage of offensive zone starts in the entire league (32.8%), and Hejda wasn't far behind at number three (35.9%).

More clear that he/they had a positive impact?
