Devils Gomez and Parise Key to Offense

Unless you’ve been underground during Round 1, you know who you need to rely on to get the job done offensively for the New Jersey Devils.

On a recent perusal of the http://www.nhl.com stats section, I was pleasantly surprised, however, to see that Devils lead the league (in the playoffs) for Points, Goals, and Assists. Not to mention two more Devils in the top 3 for Goals and Assists.

Of course now that you know that, picking the 5 players that meet such criteria come in to your mind.

For Points, Scott Gomez actually leads the playoffs with 9.

In the Goals category, Zach Parise leads with 6 goals. Brian Gionta is actually tied for second with 5, tied with the now-eliminated Vincent Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

And last but not least, the Assist leader of the playoffs is Scott Gomez with 7. Patrick Elias is in a three-way tie with Nicklas Lidstrom for Detroit and Joe Thornton for San Jose with 6 assist.

Pretty interesting stats for a team whose defensive style is the gripe of hockey fans league wide…
