Power Play Report

Once Again it's Justin Faulk

by Michael Finewax
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

I know I keep writing about Justin Faulk but he thinks he is Bobby Orr this season on the power play.

 

The Carolina defenseman has scored a power play goal in each week this season to give him six this season. That’s amazing for a forward, never mind a rearguard.

 

Rickard Rakell has joined the top line in Anaheim alongside Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. He is also on the top power play and that should get a lot of poolies interested in the former first rounder.

 

Patrice Bergeron and defenseman John Klingberg are the only NHLers with 10 power play points as we hit the middle of November. That’s a 45-50 point pace for both and we know they won’t keep that up.
