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

would you have believed any of it?
