Pacific Division Update and Playoff Predictions

Jesse Cohen takes a look at the season so far and gives his predictions for how the Pacific Division will look come playoff time

With a little more than a quarter of the season gone, it's time to take a look at the LA Kings chances to make the playoffs. Today we'll focus on their competitors in the Pacific Division and later in the week evaluate the play of the Kings to this point in the season.

 

San Jose Sharks

Record: 15-9-1
Shot Attempt (Close): 55.4% (No. 1 in NHL)
Leading Scorer: Joe Pavelski (23 points)

The Sharks possess the most effective defense in the NHL. They rank No. 1 in goals against per game (2.04) and No. 2 in shots against (26.2). Add in the No. 11-ranked penalty kill (83.6%) and a league leading 55.4% "shot attempts close" it's not surprising that they find themselves at the top of the competitive Pacific Division.
