Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy breaks down the most clutch players in the NHL this season with Marian Gaborik making the list…
…Rangers haven’t had too many pure goal scorers recently, so Gaborik has been fun to watch this year.
…i’m also stunned by his shootout percentage this year. This is the same guy Torts refused to use in the shootout with the season literally on the line in Philadelphia two years ago. I have a feeling Torts wouldn’t make that same decision if seeding came down to a shootout this year.
…Richards was probably close to making this list with his seven game winners, but assuming his 0-for-8 in the shootout was the reason for leaving him out.
Speaking of Rangers being recognized, Henrik Lundqvist was voted as the 13th best player in the NHL in a The Hockey News players poll.
