-Lars Eller Facts: Eller is such a boss against the Jets he got a point on the power play with Boullion on the ice against them. Twice

-10 minutes into the 2nd Galchenyuk showed a glimpse of future greatness with a dazzling display on the rush. Unfortunately no dice.

-Ryder is such a vulture in the offensive zone. In the best possible sense. Vultures are cool.

-Subban tops the league in both goals and points by a defenseman. He's no longer just the king of fancy-stats, he's the king of the regular ones too.

-Teams relatively equivalent 5 on 5, maybe an edge to the Canadiens but the Jets seem to have more shot attempts. But the Habs are running the table on special teams so far.
