NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 15 Stamkos scores 500th goal, Canucks hire Tocchet, All-Star rosters finalized and more
One of my favorite stats is plus/minus. The team with the most players in the top six almost always wins during the playoffs. In the regular season, that's not always the case.

NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 3 Bruins hotter than ever, Islanders scoring, Devils growing, Thompson shines
This is the third week in a row I’ve talked about the Boston Bruins, which wasn’t planned, but it’s hard to ignore their play.
Two weeks into the season, we have three teams with no regulation losses, the Dallas Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues, and one team with no regulation wins the Vancouver Canucks.
The Edmonton Oilers started this season the same way they played most of last season.
