Interesting numbers for Jokinen (PP goals against), Harrison (penalties taken vs drawn), Skinner (penalties drawn), Gleason (PKs ended by drawing a penalty), Faulk (penalties taken) and Sanguinetti (PP goals for).
Could have sworn I remember Faulk taking a penalty in a recent game. John (or Tripp) made a comment about that being his first one of the year.
In relation to the other statistics, I have a theory (albeit a ridiculous one ):
Jokinen has been less than stellar to start the season. We know it, he knows it, his teammates know it. Thus, when Jokinen adds to that..."usefulness"...by taking a penalty, it becomes difficult for his teammates to get past it. "God, it's bad enough you're not scoring, but now you're putting us down a man...Oh ****, they scored"
On the exact opposite side of the coin, whenever Sanguinetti draws a penalty, his teammates are so surprised that he contributed anything positive to the team, they make a concentrated effort to take advantage on the ensuing PP, because it's such a rare event, you can't pass it up.
04:13 Eric Staal - Penalty Drawn
06:08 Jordan Staal - Penalty Drawn
07:25 Riley Nash - Min PK (tripping) +1 PP Ended, +1 Goal Against
11:09 Ruutu - Min PK (interference)
19:32 Harrison - Min PK (boarding)
12:30 Eric Staal - Min PK (closing hand on puck)
07:40 Semin - Penalty Drawn +1 Goal For (I'm 99% sure that the puck went in before PP time expired, even though it officially counted as an ESG. The goal was recorded at exactly 120 seconds after the penalty, and that includes the time it took the timekeeper to stop the clock.)
10:51 Pitkanen - Min PK (high-sticking)
16:27 Pitkanen - Min PK (interference)
