    "goals against average according to nhl.com: League Average: 2.96
    sv% according to nhl.com: League Average: .911
    what?
    how?
    Shots against average according to hockey reference: 33.4, highest in nhl history by 2 shots"
    -Blue Bull, 2017
    3.15. that's how many goals that have been scored on average by one team per game according hockey-reference.com in the 2017-18 season so far.
    That would be the highest scoring in the nhl since the new jersey devils revolutionized defensive tactics in the 1995 lockout shortened season. It would easily be higher than anything we have seen since the 2004-05 lockout (with the exclusion of the 2006 season, 3.08). the scoring isn't going away yet either. Last night, New Jersey beat Toronto 6-3 (9 Goals) and Colorado beat Boston via the same score. Anaheim beat New York (the islanders) 3-2 last night and the same goes for Pittsburgh beating Washington, and finally, Calgary beat Los Angeles 4-3 in Overtime. 33 goals in 5 games, or about 6.60 goals by two teams per game (3.3 by one). If youre wondering why it's like this, well the shots against are on nhl record pace this year. 33.4, 2.4 ahead of 1985-86 with 31.0.

    After hitting "See Translation," it told me it's still really early in the year and everyone is fresh. Also, slashing.

    The season has barely started. You can't come up with trends that mean anything.

    I don't know, maybe they found out that the only way to score more is to shoot more. the save percentage in the nhl is .911 which is very much similar to what we have seen over the last 6 to 7 years.

    If the referees continue to call slashing on the hands, more power plays....more goals. If the players stop impeding by slashing, more offensive changes, therefore more goals.

    Nick Kypreos twice in the last week has said he thinks there will be at least twelve 50 goal scorers (because of the slashing calls) and wisely Darren Millard asked him to name them.

    He said,

    Mcdavid
    Crosby
    Matthews
    Stamkos
    Laine
    Ovechkin
    Mallon
    kucherov
    Scheifle
    Seguin
    Benn
    Pacioretty (this one got a funny look from Millard)



    I think he's reaching but analysts always get excited early, can't forget Darren pang predicting tarasenko to get fiftyin fifty two years ago after two weeks.
