This is a feature that will run about every two weeks with improbable stats and situations in the National Hockey League.
If i told you in September:
- James Neal would be the Penguins leading scorer
- Teemu Selanne would be leading the Anaheim Ducks is goals, assists, points and penalty minutes
- The Edmonton Oilers would not just lead the Northwest Division, but have the stingiest defense in the NHL
- rookie Senators defenseman Jared Cowen would lead the NHL in hits while averaging just 16:26 in TOI/G
- The only team in the western conference to allow more goals than the Vancouver Canucks would be the Columbus Blue Jackets
- that Dan Ellis, Brian Elliot, Al Montoya, and Devan Dubnyk would be well above Ryan Miller in save percentage
- that Matt Cooke would have more goals through the Penguins first 15 games than suspensions and more points than penalty minutes
- on 11/6 Tuukka Rask would have less appearances, less wins, and a worse goals against average than Rick Dipietro
- of the four conference finalists the only one in a playoff spot on the first weekend of November would be the San Jose Sharks
- the marquee-less Dallas Stars would be the first team to ten wins, own the conference lead, and that star studded New York Rangers would have less goals, a worse differential and
- Vladamir Sobotka would enter play on Sunday with more assists than Ryan Kesler
