The defending champions’ roller coaster season included trading offensive star Percy Harvin in the midst of the team’s 3-3 start. That move that reportedly irked several Seahawk players, but one management saw necessary to save the team’s chemistry.Good games for Brassard, Tavares, Tokarski among others; lineup news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Derick Brassard – The Rangers’ centre scored the overtime winner and added an assist in a 4-3 win over the Red Wings. He’s second on the team with 11 points in 12 games and also has a 53.6% Corsi, his best since 2008-2009, despite – in the absence of Derek Stepan – starting fewer shifts in the offensive zone. Brassard Possession Stats YEAR CORSI% OZ START% 2007-08 54.4% 72.2% 2008-09 58.1% 64.1% 2009-10 48.4% 63.6% 2010-11 51.1% 60.5% 2011-12 47.4% 50.7% 2012-13 47.3% 47.2% 2013-14 53.5% 60.2% 2014-15 53.6% 51.7% John Tavares – The Islanders’ franchise player scored twice, including the overtime winner, in a 3-2 win at Anaheim. He’s tied for ninth in the league with 14 points in a dozen games and the Isles are getting 53.3% of the shot attempts during 5-on-5 play. Dustin Tokarski – The Canadiens’ backup might have expected an easier night in Buffalo, but ultimately he stopped 31 of 32 Sabres shots to earn the shootout win. ZEROES Cal Clutterbuck – The Islanders’ right winger was one of several Isles on the wrong end of the possession game, but allowing 30 shot attempts against (13 attempts for, 30.2%) in 14:53 at even strength, stood out for the wrong reason. Chris Kreider – Coming off a strong game, the Rangers’ left winger was on the wrong end of play (8 shot attempts for, 21 against, 27.6%) for much of the night against Detroit. He did have an assist, but didn’t register a shot on goal in 15:30 of ice time. Patrick Maroon – Left without Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, Maroon struggled possession wise (13 for, 27 against, 32.5%) against the Islanders. It’s not altogether surprising going from the top line to spending most of his time on a line with Nate Thompson and Tim Jackman. SHORT SHIFTS Red Wings D Niklas Kronwall had outstanding possession stats (28 for, 7 against, 80.0%) in the loss at the Rangers …Red Wings D Jakub Kindl had a goal and an assist in a 4-3 loss at the Rangers…Rangers RW Martin St. Louis had a goal andd an assist in the win…Islanders RW Kyle Okposo had a goal and an assist, and 70.dddddddddddd.7% possession in a 3-2 overtime win at Anaheim…Canadiens LW Max Pacioretty had eight shots on goal and game-best possession (25 shot attempts for, 10 against, 71.4%) at Buffalo… Islanders LW Matt Martin had seven hits in 9:21 of ice time, but spent most of his night in the Islanders’ end of the rink (4 shot attempts for, 14 against, 22.2%)…Sabres G Michal Neuvirth stopped 31 of 32 Canadiens shots. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW The Ducks were missing both C Ryan Getzlaf and RW Corey Perry, as both had the flu. Ryan Kesler (21:27) and Andrew Cogliano (17:42) were the top ice time forwards for Anaheim. Canadiens RW Jiri Sekac returned to the lineup for Montreal’s win in Buffalo, after being a healthy scratch for four games, replacing Rene Bourque, who was a healthy scratch. Red Wings G Jonas Gustavsson suffered a dislocated shoulder, so Petr Mrazek is on his way from the AHL to back up Jimmy Howard. Rangers D Matt Hunwick recorded a couple of assists and played 21:40 – ranking third among New York blueliners – in the win over Detroit. FIRSTS Dan Cleary – The veteran winger played his first game of the season for the Red Wings, scored a goal and had solid possession stats (11 shot attempts for, 3 against, 78.6%), in the loss to the Rangers. Eric Boulton – The Islanders’ enforcer dressed for his first game of the year, playing 7:48 in Anaheim. FANTASY FOCUS A couple players active tonight that are worth keeping an eye on: Matt Read – It’s been a slow start for the Flyers’ winger, as he has just one goal in 12 games, but he’s also generated just 15 shots on goal, so some of that lack of production is justified. Nevertheless, with Michael Raffl out, there is room for someone to move up the Flyers’ depth chart and that could be an opportunity for Read to get on track. Nino Niederreiter – Already off to a decent start, with four goals and six points in 11 games, Niederreiter has only been playing 13:34 per game for the Wild. With Zach Parise sidelined by a concussion, though, there could be a few more minutes of ice time available.
