I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but the key here is that this small sample comes from Nylander joining Matthews’ wing (Muzzin-Zaitsev is the d group with at line).

Don't know the numbers but the eye test tells me Muzz and Z have been a lot better lately and that's a good thing because we'll need them.

What if Muzzin is the type of player that unlocks Zaitsev's powers?
Gardiner-Rielly
Muzzin-Zaitsev
Dermott-Hainsey/Marincin

PPP had a fun breakdown of the defensive deployment earlier in the day.

It shows how carefully the coaching staff curates the D-group's deployment and usage per game situation.

This is what can happen when you've got a guy back there that has a slap-shot. Muzz faking and stepping forward then finding Auston was just a great move.
