Petro is helped a great deal by the system he plays in. Gets much more defensive help from his forwards.
You got it. Pietrangelo benefits from his system just as much as Karlsson benefits from his. Don't forget, Karlsson has to defend against Crosby, Ovechkin, Stamkos, Kovalchuk, Giroux, Malkin, Kessel. For as much scoring as the East does, that goes against Karlsson's defensive game as well. The top eight scorers in the NHL were from the Eastern Conference. The Western Conference didn't even have an 80+ point player for Pietrangelo and Doughty to defend against.
