    Wow. What a sad attempt at looking at some "statistics." Yikes, awful awful article. This could be almost entirely noise for all we know. Nowhere is there any "correlation" involved; or any meaningful statistics of any kind.

    This particular article isn't the best but the author isn't wrong- I've read some much more well-written articles that have supported the claim

    PK is far more important than PP. Everyone knows that.

    A bad PP means 2 minutes are burned, but nothing is actually lost. If you're really good at even strength, that 2 minutes off the clock probably isn't all that important to you.

    A bad PK means a puck in your net. When that happens a lot, you lose.

    You can survive a bad power play, but a bad PK will kill you more often than not. Simple as as that.

    What?

    The bold is very true...

    You take a bad penalty and fail to kill it, or fail to capitalize on a PP - that could cost you the season...

    I will say this - championship teams will always get through the "adversity" of a bad call or a bad penalty.
