Interesting bit on advanced statistics rankings for playoff teams on NHL.com
8. Pittsburgh Penguins (51-24-5) LW: 9
MVP: The guy with 103 points.
Surprise: Matt Niskanen and Olli Maatta have each been thrust into larger roles than expected because of injuries and have arguably been the most valuable players on the team that weren't the first player taken in an NHL Draft.
Disappointment: Sure, the vast amount of injuries has been crippling at times, but the biggest disappointment can be summed up like this:
This team performs like a Cup contender during shifts that involve Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, and looks like a non-playoff team during shifts that don't.
I was surprised to see Philly so low...
