These are the 4on5 stats for the entire NHL, including GA/60, as posted at Behind The Net. The lower the number, the better your penalty killing unit is. And as you can see, I've sorted this from worst to best.

Because that's how I roll.

Anyway, you see that 10.6 value for Dallas? I'd like that lowered please. And while you're at it, let's see if we can elevate that 8.1 for Buffalo just a tad.

And Rangers? Drop the claws and antlers on them. Pretty please?
