The only way I think these playoffs can redeem themselves would be for an offside review to cost somebody the final win in overtime or something and that then causes the NHL to blow up the review process.

Friendly amendment.

Could it be said that not having Ryan Johansen out there has seriously hampered Nashville's goal-scoring (potential).

Pittsburgh is Pekka Rinne's worst opponent -- he is 0-7-2 lifetime (regular & post season).

Rinne now has the dubious distinction of possessing the single worst game save percentage in Stanley Cup Final history (dating from the expansion era).

Pittsburgh's marvelous rookie Jake Guentzel holds the record for most points by an American-born player in the post-season with 19.

Plus, he also owns the record for most playoff game-winning goals in NHL history with 5.

Both those records are for rookies only, not all players. Seems important to note that.

Guentzel isn't even the American born player with the most playoff points on his team.

I've been severely misled on this Guentzel character.

Per Jeff Veillette, the top-10 under-24 scorers in the AHL this season:



Two of the top-5, Guentzel and Aberg, have had pretty big roles for their teams in the Cup finals. The other 3 top-5 players are all Leafs. I think that we're all in complete agreement that Griffith won't be getting another shot with the big team but that's pretty promising for Kapanen and Leipsic.

Quote
"Not the biggest, or the fastest, or the strongest, he succeeded in all three zones by being the smartest player out there; his hockey sense is high, high end. Possessing tremendous vision and anticipation, he also showed a nice two-way game too; breaking up plays on the backcheck, supporting his D down low and along the walls, stealing pucks. He is a decent skater, but uses his burst of speed and quickness to catch defenders flat footed; he is so adept at using deception- whether it be skating or in his puck skills- to his advantage. I cannot emphasize enough just how good his hockey sense is."

Smallish, cerebral, skilled forward with two-way compete that wrecked the AHL sounds familiar.

I suppose this is bordering on nikpicking but given that he was mostly in the NHL until January I'd wager a guess that Seth Griffith scored nowhere close to 44 points as an U24 forward in the AHL.

47 pts in 32 games as a 23 year old :)

But 0 pts this season.

And only 44 in 38 points as a 24 year old. Already on the decline!
