I don't think the bolded is accurate. What Harrington brings to the table can't be measured on the stat sheet. Or it can, but you have to look elsewhere. Namely, Vincent Trochek has 1 goal in the series versus the Knights. He lead the OHL in scoring in the regular season, and was tearing it up in the playoffs before the Knights' series.

They showed a stat last night on Sportsnet during the game. Other than Tom Wilson, who has been on fire, the majority of Plymouth's big guns have only scored 1 goal or less in the 4 games prior to last night, including the aforementioned Trochek. IMO, a lot of that has to do with Harrington's play as a shutdown defender.
