I don't have the shot statistics (where does one find that?) but Zibanejad would probably be way up there, but how many of those shots have actually had the chance of going in? (yeah, yeah, every one of them etc..) Was the same when everyone was excited about how many shots Zibanejad had at the WJC when half of them where from the neutral zone.
No one got excited about anything Mika did before he scored the winner.

A handful of those shots went off the post and another were off well-timed one time shots on the powerplay. He also did it without being on the top PP unit. You know, leading goal scorers tend to score an above average amount of empty netters.

Silfverberg looked fine last night, I think he needs to get more assertive shooting the puck, however he needs to do that. That line altogether just needs to get more in control of the puck.
