We know from the Penguins impressive team numbers, they were an Offensive force through the playoffs. Let's see how that Offense was distributed among the forward group, the D core and the individuals.

The Penguin Forwards ranked:

The Individuals:

Crosby, Malkin and Kessel contributed Offensively well beyond any other threesome in the playoffs. They combined to deliver 42.5 % of the Pen’s Offense, with the rest of the Offense coming by committee from the remaining forwards and defensemen.

Letang was the Pen’s Offensive leader on the blue line. He was second only to Brent Burns of the 12 D that made the Finals. He contributed almost half (44.7%) of the Offense coming from Pittsburgh's D men.

NOTE: Letang was 3rd among all D men in Positive Offense but had the 2nd highest cost of offense of any playoff D man. Also interesting, Duncan Keith led all playoff defensemen in Positive Offense but had the highest cost of offense of any playoff defenseman.

Dumoulin was 2nd in Offense behind Letang but a ways back, ranking at 30 among all playoff D men.


Stay tuned for more breakdown of the playoffs.
