I have a bit of a question regarding the stat in general. If Kessel has two assists than how is he +0 for the year on when Montreal only scored once last night? I always thought +/- was the comparison of goals for vs against. Could someone enlighten me? Shouldn't he be +1? How does the stat work?
BTW, Kessel has never been a minus player in his whole career... at least not until he joined the Leafs.
