3. Special teams = exceptional.


It's true at every level of hockey: if your special teams are polished, you give yourself a great chance for success. The Falcons are clicking on both sides of that coin so far; their power play unit has shaken off a 4-for-50 spell, and answered that with five power play goals in their last three games (all victories). Springfield holds a 5-1-0-0 record in November and it wouldn't be so strong without the penalty kill, which has killed of 19 of its last 20 assignments. The Falcons' PK is an AHL-best 90.5 percent (57-for-63).
