NHL Public Relations  @PR_NHL

The @NHLJets became the first team to post a series-clinching shutout win by a margin of 5+ goals since @SanJoseSharks in #Game7 of the 2016 Conference Semifinals vs. NSH (5-0 W). #NHLStats #StanleyCup


Its great seeing the league want to keep putting out the Jets name, but attaching "records" like this to truly historic events kinda waters down the message... 

We're we the first team to clinch a first round playoff series with only 2 left handed D playing in the final game?  Or some other less important "stat"?

2 back to back shutouts by a 24 year old,  most wins by an American goalie in a season... these are not "records" that anyone follows... might be an interesting tidbit for a colour guy to quote during a braodcast, sure, fill in empty air, but more than that?  Nah..





Is this a real stat?    I think the Wings won a Cup series with all left or right guys.

Can you explain?   Im not being a smartass i really dont get it.

I could be wrong, but I am assuming that he means that Hendricks is some sort of underdog like Rudy was and everyone is cheering for him?

Hendricks has been a catalyst all season, in or out of the lineup, the vet presence, the guy choosing the dressing room music, etc.  Now, during the biggest games of the year, he's in the pressbox.  So, maybe all the players lined up and said, "Put Matty in for me, coach" and put their sweaters on his desk... and Ehlers was the one chosen to sit.

Or maybe he was just feeling under the weather...  "malaise" as it were.

Interesting "colour guy" tidbit... in 2010, he apparently signed with the Caps to work under the tutelage of Bruce Boudreau...

That is quite the stretch if you are trying to compare Hendricks-Ehlers situation to the movie Rudy.

It was a bloody joke... wow... of course I don't think they would have done that for Hendricks.  Well... I'm pretty sure they didn't.  Although with this group...  nah.  But maybe...
