Stastny and his line were effective dumping and chasing and cycling but it never amounts to anything. Avs never have any traffic in the slot (compare to Sharks, who circle our slot non-stop).

It's a bit too easy to defend against, especially for big and strong teams like Sharks.

The best chance Stastny had was in transition when he found Landeskog who had that great pass in the slot. There his passing and quick thinking got rewarded. Grinding behind net is something he is decent at, but it's not all that effective.
