So if Habs win one more game Rangers can't catch them and Buffalo would have to win both their remaining games to pass Montreal. Looks like Montreal - Boston since I believe Montreal will win won of their last two if not both.
Skinner is still a cut above, and should (deservedly) win it imo.
Great game by the boys! Showed a lot of character, now, hope we get to play the Bruins the 1st rounder.
Skinner wouldn't have gotten that many points in Montreal. He plays in complete anonymity in Carolina. Subban plays in the most intense hockey market, where he could have been blown away by the pressure. He rose to the challenge and plus! 14 goals by the guy, with a defence-first team, in the hotbed of hockey, playing as a Number 1 as a rookie, AND without any support really (Markov being out, he's the target), he deserves even more. Skinner will be good, very good. I don't doubt it. But PK has the makings of a SUPERSTAR.
Subban is tied for #1 with Wideman for PP goals by a defenseman
6th with Chara for goals by a dman
28th for points
65th for hits
26th for takeaways with 37
(-)28th for giveaways with 55, still a much better average (-18) compared to fan darlings Doughty -52 (69gv/17tk), and Keith -56 (94/38), although they do play 3 minutes and 4 minutes more per game.
