That is ridiculously low and won't keep up. That's the kind of stat-line that 4th line grinders like George Parros have.
Another example is Mike Richards. Right now he's sitting pretty at -6 while his goalies have posted a .784 SV% while he's on the ice. Richards is generally considered a very solid two-way player.
Again, no way the SV% stays that low.
Plekanec has been on the ice for 8 ESGA and Markov for 9 ESGA as well.
For comparison sake, only three players finished below .900 on the team last year, and only two guys who played more than 25 games. Dumont finished with a .750, but that was only 3 games. Could have been something like 3 saves on 4 shots. Gionta (.894) and Emelin (.897), where the only others.
Basically, it's an oddity to this point. Just like Price/Budaj have combined for a 1.000 SV% while Ryan White & Yannick Weber have been on the ice.
For Plekanec and Markov, i noticed that too.....but both are playing 20 to 25 minutes a game and against the top offensive line!!!!
And at least, both are producing offensively!!!
