10 stats after the first quarter of the season: 1. 13-6-1: 2nd best record in the East, 1pt back of a team that we are 3-0-0 against... 2. Best GAA in the league with 1.80. 3. 10th best offense in the league with 2.80 Goal/game. 4. 4th best in the league and best in the East 5 on 5 GF/GA with 1.46. 5. 2nd best PK in the league with 87.5%. We killed what? 32 in a row now? Total domination. 6. PP is middle of the pack at 15th but is producing at a good % with 19.2%. 7. Loui is getting in the groove. 2g-5a in his 6 games point streak. The team is 11-3-1 when he's in the lineup. 8. For those keeping scores: Loui+Smith= 7g-16a-23pts in 35 gms and Seguin+Peverley= 16g-16a=32pts in 39gms. 9pts behind with 4 gms less played... 9. Rask is a pure God: 11w, 1.64, .944, 2SO... Only Harding has better stats than him this year. 10. Marchand: 7pts in 20gms. Sure he's not playing any PP so it's tougher to get points but there is something wrong with him this year. When he finds back his groove, this team will be even tougher to beat. All in all, a very good first 20 games and it could even have been better with uncharacteristics losses against NJ+Ottawa when leading by 2 goals and that SO loss against Dallas caused by a dive that resulted in a penalty shot late in the game. With the emergence of Krug and Hamilton, Loui and the 2nd line that is finding their groove, the dominance of Rask and the 1st line, the Godly PK, Chara, Julien and the added scoring provided by the 3rd line, it sure looks good for the next 62 and the playoffs. This team is clearly the team to beat in the East. The road to the SCF pass by Boston. Enjoy the ride fellow B's fans!
