We're bad offensively is a blanket statement that doesn't hold up. This season, the team is bad 5on5 ... third worst goals for/against ratio 5on5, second worst goals for 5on5, t-24th in goals allowed. Yet this same team that is struggling mightily at ES has the 7th best PP% in the league ... t-9th in PP goals for while 27th in PP chances. Nystrom and Gaustad are one back of the team lead in ES goals behind Smith and Fisher.

The bipolar nature of the team is quite evident here .... good on the PP, invisible offensively at ES especially over the past month. Our best players aren't performing as our best players 5on5 but can suddenly get the job done with the man advantage.
