Habs Penalty Killing Stats 2009-2010

Habs Team Penalty Killing Efficiency: 258/311 or 83.0%, 12th in NHL
Total minutes shorthanded: 504 minutes
Average length of man-short situation = 1.62 minutes

Individuals with more than 30 minutes of PK

Forwards
---------
Pyatt...........45 min.....2 GA....92.8%
Gomez........158 min...11 GA....88.7%
Gionta........117 min...10 GA....86.2%
S.Kostitsyn.. 83 min.....8 GA....84.4%
Moen..........192 min...19 GA....84.0%
Plekanec.....224 min...23 GA....83.4%
Metropolit.....36 min.....6 GA....73.0%
Lapierre........49 min.....9 GA....70.2%
Others..........69 min....8 GA

Defence
--------
Mara............91 min.....7 GA....87.5%
Gill.............213 min....21 GA....84.0%
Gorges........259 min...26 GA....83.7%
Spacek.........86 min...10 GA....81.2%
O'Byrne........67 min.....8 GA....80.7%
Markov........100 min...12 GA....80.6%
Hamrlik........178 min...23 GA....79.1%
Others..........32 min....0 GA

Any lessons to be learned from these stats? Two little ones, perhaps.

First, Pyatt or Sergei could take a few of Plekanec's minutes on PK. It shouldn't hurt us at all on the PK, may even help, but it will also leave Pleks a bit more energy to be more effective 5-on-5 and on the PP.

Second, we might want Spacek to take a few of Hamrlik's minutes on PK. Hammer has been less effective there the second half, and the burden may be wearing him down a bit. A few less minutes on PK would leave him fresher.

I understand what you're getting at, but the #s don't mean everything. I'm pretty sure on a PK defensive zone draw a guy like sergei or pyatt wouldn't be a better option. It's not as simple as giving more ice time to so and so. Not to mention plek's sample size is greater than pyatt and sergei combined.

I will agree spacek is a pretty smart player and decent on PK, but hamrlik is more of a body presence and aggressive(a bit) along the boards, causing turnovers and such.

I have a feeling thats why O'Byrne is going to be out of the lineup for game 1. He has been MUCH better but he is still prone to switching to "angry O'Byrne mode" and he always takes a stupid penalty when he loses his cool. Am I the only one that noticed that when he makes a serious mistake(like blowing a tire and falling down on a 2v2 or a bad pinch) he goes nuts and usually takes a penalty?
