This is just a straightforward list of combined goals per game for each NHL team and its AHL affiliate. The NHL uses live scoring, so the stats used are as of 1930 EST (or so) yesterday. The AHL stats are as of Saturday’s games. For Sharks fans it shows exactly what’s been seen with their eyes–the organization isn't scoring enough goals.
NHL/AHL/Combined goals per game
Tampa Bay/Syracuse 3.44
Detroit/Grand Rapids 3.12
Edmonton/Oklahoma City 2.93
Los Angeles/Manchester 2.81
Colorado/Lake Erie 2.77
New Jersey/Albany 2.65
St. Louis/Peoria 2.59
Florida/San Antonio 2.58
Winnipeg/St John’s 2.47
San Jose/Worcester 2.42
(I originally posted this to Sharkspage, but this probably a better place for some discussion about it)
The silver lining is in the last two games especially the last game the Sharks looked much faster. I have to hand it to Clowe, although he hasn't scored he is playing a much quicker game. Havlat however... teaching and old dog new tricks comes to mind...
Anyone play role playing games? Well the Sharks may have leveled up.
