I expect that number to start to grow as our forwards start scoring more at ES (can't get any worse since we are dead last in the league right now for ES GF).
I watched that game and yes Eberle scores that goal 99 times out of a 100.
Yes the lack of 5-5 scoring does fall more on the forwards, not winning enough face offs in a crucial factor.
But the bottom line is that Schultz was brought in for his offense, he has to provide it 5-5 as well for the team to get better.
Being the best Dman on a team does bring responsibilities. Surrounding Schultz and those skilled forwards with some grit and size will help long term as well for the team overall.
