Powerless - 04-12-13

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Pascal Dupuis reached the 20-goal mark last night and did so with a rare power-play goal in a 6-3 rout of the Lightning.

Dupuis joined a group of just eight players, most of whom are all-stars, who have reached the 20-goal mark in each of the past two seasons. What makes Dupuis' accomplishment stand out amongst his peers is the fact he has produced offense with relatively few chances on the power play.

(Note: Each players' power-play goal totals and average power-play time on ice are combined over the past two seasons.)
