I'm sure CK is very proud of his Corsi score.... (whatever that is)
When you say MDZ do you mean Zuccarello? That threw me off a bit, lol.

Also, Corsi is a possession metric.
Quote:
Corsi: A statistic originally invented by Jim Corsi, who was the goaltender coach for the Buffalo Sabres. Corsi is essentially a plus-minus statistic that measures shot attempts. A player receives a plus for any shot attempt (on net, missed, or blocked) that his team directs at the opponent's net, and a minus for any shot attempt against his own net. A proxy for possession.
