EDITOR'S NOTE: You've arrived at the CBJ Power Rankings, our weekly breakdown of the top-five players, statistics, trends and many other Blue Jackets-related categories. If you're looking for the traditional power rankings, you've come to the wrong place. We'll go in-depth and outside the box, and hopefully give you something to think about.
We're talking about offense, friends. Goal-scoring and tons of fun...and in the heat of a playoff race that looks like it's going right down the wire, several teams around the NHL are looking to their top guns to score the clutch goals and keep their postseason hopes alive. The Metropolitan Division has seen a lot of goal-scoring this season, but five players stand out as the best lamp-lighters in the division.
Once again, we're back on a Monday morning to break it down for you. Let's look at the Metro Division's top goal scorers, shall we?
2013-14 GOALS: 36
A healthy Sidney Crosby has provided the Pittsburgh Penguins about exactly what you'd expect him to do: scoring a ton of goals and be one of the NHL's best offensive players. Check and check so far in 2013-14, as Crosby leads the Penguins in goal-scoring and has teamed up with line mate Chris Kunitz to account for a significant chunk of the team's offense. Those two have combined for 70 goals in the Penguins' 75 games, which is, y'know, pretty good.
