Probably the most points from the D.

We're one of the few teams to have two #1 D.

Our defense was really good. Now every mistake end up in the net. Pucks deflect off our players into our own goal. Everything is happening !
Fewest shots isn't always indicative of how great a D is. But how a system is playing, how the entire team, including the forwards buy in the system and helps their D's and so on. We've also had the most powerplay minutes so it cuts down on the ES minute against us. Offensively, we're great thanks at 2 guys. And Markov defensively, isn't a #1D.

My point is that on a condensed 48-game season and next year on a longer 82-game season, we will see the flaws of that D. Aging Markov who isn't as fast, and smaller D who keeps being pounded, at one point, it has to show.
