Some of the Islanders’ success is due to the supporting cast, a revelation on the Dallas blueline, a big night for Canucks checkers, tough times for Crosby; lots of lineup notes, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. Fake Yeezy 350 V3 . HEROES Ryan Strome – The Islanders’ winger had a goal and two assists against the Penguins Friday, and even though he was held off the scoresheet in Saturday’s rematch, Strome has seven points (4 G, 3 A) in the past six games and is the most efficient scorer in the league. Among players to play at least 100 5-on-5 minutes this season: 5-on-5 Point Production PLAYER TEAM PTS/60 Ryan Strome N.Y. Islanders 4.04 Jakub Voracek Philadelphia 3.85 Rick Nash N.Y. Rangers 3.67 Ryan Carter Minnesota 3.58 Nick Bonino Vancouver 3.55 Nikita Kucherov Tampa Bay 3.53 Filip Forsberg Nashville 3.49 Tyler Johnson Tampa Bay 3.38 Tyler Seguin Dallas 3.30 Vladimir Tarasenko St. Louis 3.26 (By the way, how about that Ryan Carter?) John Klingberg – The Stars rookie defenceman had a goal and an assist against Los Angeles Saturday, giving him six points (2 G, 4 A) during a four-game point streak and he’s played 23:36 per game in seven games since being called up from the AHL. On a Stars defence that has been looking for answers through the first quarter of the season, it appears that Klingberg is one. Hansen, Horvat & Dorsett – Canucks RW Jannik Hansen scored three goals against Chicago in Vancouver’s 4-1 win Sunday, giving him five goals in the past three games. His centre, rookie Bo Horvat assisted on all three while Derek Dorsett picked up a couple assists. Incidentally, Hansen is also off to a Cy Young-calibre start, with eight goals and one assist this season. Cy Young PLAYER TEAM G/A RATIO Matt Beleskey Anaheim 9:1 Jannik Hansen Vancouver 8:1 Mike Hoffman Ottawa 7:1 Michael Raffl Philadelphia 6:1 David Clarkson Toronto 6:1 ZEROES Sidney Crosby – Buried in the defensive zone Friday against the Islanders (13 shot attempts for, 29 against, 31.0%), No. 87 had the worst possession numbers among the Penguins and it was a rough weekend against the Islanders overall, with 25 shot attempts for and 44 against (36.2%) – unusual considering Crosby’s Corsi at even strength this year is 56.9%, the second-best of his career. Ryan Johansen – Columbus’ No. 1 centre had no shot attempts in 17:17 at Philadelphia Saturday and had the worst possession stats (7 for, 15 against 31.8%) among Blue Jackets forwards. Adam Larsson - In just 11:58 of even-strength ice time against Edmonton Friday, Larsson was on for three shot attempts for and 17 against (15.0%). He has a positive Corsi and has been holding down a regular spot on the New Jersey blueline, but it was a rough night nonetheless. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Jay Bouwmeester – The St. Louis blueliner was hurt on the weekend, suffering a lower-body injury after stepping in a rut on the ice, ending his ironman streak at 737 games. With Bouwmeester out of the lineup Sunday, Chris Butler made his Blues debut. Mike Green – The Capitals defenceman suffered an upper-body injury against Buffalo Saturday. If Green is out, Jack Hillen is next in line to join the lineup, but Karl Alzner may be the one bumped into a top-four role for Washington. Johnny Gaudreau – The Calgary rookie played a career-high 24:25, and picked up an assist for the third straight game, against New Jersey Saturday. Gaudreau averaged 14:29 of ice time per game in October and is up to 17:06 in November, scoring 12 points (2 G, 10 A) in his past 12 games. Drew Doughty – Played a season-high 33:07 for the Kings at Dallas Saturday. It was the 10th time in 21 games this season that Doughty played at least 30 minutes. At 28:58 per game, he ranks second in the league, behind Minnesota’s Ryan Suter (29:19). Jason Demers – Played 25:32, partnered with Trevor Daley, and scored a goal in his Dallas debut Saturday. Matt Calvert – Returned to the Columbus lineup Friday against Boston after missing a couple weeks with an upper-body injury, then scored a goal Saturday at Philadelphia. Kevin Connauton – Acquired on waivers from Dallas, Connauton was inserted into the Columbus lineup on Friday and Saturday and averaged 16:53 of ice time in two games. Nikita Nikitin – The Oilers defenceman was benched Friday, then scratched from the lineup Saturday, as Keith Aulie returned to the Edmonton lineup. Roman Polak – Injured Saturday night against Detroit after an awkward fall against the boards, the Maple Leafs defenceman suffered a lower-body injury. Only Dion Phaneuf has played more than the 21:07 per game that Polak has played for the Leafs this season and now Polak is expected to miss at least four weeks of action. Scott Laughton – The Flyers rookie played a career-high 15:01 against Columbus Saturday, leading Philadelphia with six hits. John Mitchell – The checking centre was out of the Avalanche lineup, joining Alex Tanguay and rookie Dennis Everberg on the shelf, so Colorado had call-ups Andrew Agozzino, Ben Street and Tomas Vincour in Saturday’s lineup. They’ve since demoted Agozzino and recalled Paul Carey from the AHL. Corban Knight – The Flames called up the 24-year-old centre from the AHL, where he had eight points (5 G, 3 A) in 16 games for Adirondck. In his NHL season debut, Knight skated 6:33 on the Flames’ fourth line. Luca Sbisa – With Dan Hamhuis hurt, Sbisa played more than 21 minutes for the Canucks in both games over the weekend, pairing with Kevin Bieksa. Alexander Khokhlachev – The second-round pick in 2011 was inserted into the Boston lineup Friday and Saturday after scoring 16 points (5 G, 11 A) in 15 games with Providence. Tyson Strachan – The Sabres keep rolling out Strachan for big minutes and he was buried in the defensive zone (7 shot attempts for, 37 against, 15.9%) against Washington Saturday. Strachan played 22:39 at even strength, more than any other Sabres player. Jiri Sekac - The Canadiens rookie right winger played a career-high 17:53 at Boston Saturday, then played 17:48 against the Rangers Sunday. SHORT SHIFTS Oilers D Martin Marincin was on for 30 shot attempts for and two against (93.8%) in Friday’s 2-0 loss to New Jersey.

For a Bruins team that could use an offensive boost, is it possible that an 18-year-old could be the answer? Riley Sheahan – The second-year Red Wings centre has fuor points (2 G, 2 A) in the past four games, on a good streak with linemates Tomas Tatar and Justin Abdelkader. Jussi Jokinen – Even though he’s been held off the scoresheet in back-to-back games, Jokinen has 12 points (2 G, 10 A) in the past 13 games, and is the reliable veteran presence on a line with youngsters Vincent Trocheck and Jimmy Hayes.
