The powerplay numbers are skewed a bit by the 9-1 Atlanta game that saw the Leafs go 7-16 with the extra man/men. However, you can see that this year's team is depending a bit less on the powerplay to create offence. The team has become, when they play, a much harder opponent 5-on-5 as evidenced by the even goal differential compared to a 4 goal deficit last year at even strength. The penalty kill had actually reached a level of improvement over last year but the last two games knocked it down to below last season's. The encouraging sign is that the Leafs have averaged just over one penalty a game less which shows that they are adapting much better to the new standard of officiating.
