Boychuk and Leddy dominating at even strength
It's been three weeks since Garth Snow acquired Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy and after seeing their contributions through the first seven games, it's hard to imagine where the Isles would be without them.
A few numbers:
Boychuk is 2-4-6 with a +5 , his 2 PP goals and 5 PP points are tied for the team lead.
Leddy is 3-2-5 with a +4
But check out these even strength numbers:
There have been 10 even-strength goals scored with Boyhuk on the ice; 8 of them by the Isles (80%)
There have been 11 even-strength goals scored with Leddy on the ice; 8 of them by the Isles (73%)
(The two forwards who have been the best so far: Grabovski (80% -- 4 of 5) and Bailey (71% -- 5 of 7).
