Tuesday Bullets

  • Trevor Lewis, Dwight King and Jake Muzzin have each only been on the ice for one even-strength goal-against.
  • Davis Drewiske has been on the ice for 2.
  • Slava Voynov has only been on the ice for 3. Which is crazy, given the ice-time he logs.
  • Alec Martinez has been out for 5. Rob Scuderi, 13. Drew Doughty, 15.
  • Muzzin and Voynov, in that order, lead Kings d in plus-minus/60.
  • That’s 14th (Muzzin) and 19th (Voynov) in the league, among d.
  • Voynov and Muzzin are 3rd and 4th among D in behindthenet.com’s pure “rating”, which is a magical algorithm of their various yardsticks — they are behind only Mark Fraser and Victor Hedman.
  • Among d with more than 15 minutes of icetime per game, it’s Hedman, then Voynov.
  • Doughty, Scuderi and Martinez are 6th, 8th and 11th (respectively) in the league in QUALCOMP among defensemen with at least five games.
  • That’s not good, since Martinez is hurt.
  • Clifford, Doughty, Scuderi, Carter, Williams and Gagne have the lowest QUALTEAM on the Kings, which kind of means they’re on the ice with the weakest teammates (though this metric strikes me as somewhat circular, since Doughty and Scuderi are on the ice together, bringing each other down).
  • Doughty and Scuderi pretty clearly get just about the toughest matchups in the league, and are expected to do it without an excess of support.

    Seems Scuderi finally found his game…and the Kings defense began looking sharp.

    Clifford deserves an award…how about the best overall effort for the 1st 10 games.

    I think the Stoll goal was actually a missed shot…looked like he was aiming for the glass and the cross bar got in the way.

    Best Stanley Cup Day (so far): Mitchell. Very cool.
