Couturier does it all for the Flyers, Perry has a hat trick, Scrivens saves the Oilers and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. Bruno Caboclo Raptors Jersey . HEROES Sean Couturier, C, Philadelphia – Helped the Flyers to a 5-3 win at Pittsburgh, scoring a goal and two assists, matched up for much of the game against Sidney Crosby - who was held without a point, incidentally - and Couturier started most (71.4%) of his even-strength shifts in the defensive zone. Corey Perry, RW, Anaheim – Three goals, in the Ducks’ 4-1 win, was too much for the Sabres to keep up with. Perry had seven shot attempts (6 SOG) in the game and is now tied with Rick Nash for the league goals-scoring lead, with eight. Ben Scrivens, G, Edmonton – stopped 32 of 34 shots, including 13 in the third period, to defeat the Washington Capitals 3-2. In Scrivens’ first three appearances this year, he stopped 56 of 70 shots (.800 SV%); in the next three, he’s saved 82 of 87 shots (.943 SV%). ZEROES Buffalo Sabres – Maybe they should be given credit for breaking their scoreless drought, when C Tyler Ennis found the net with 5:06 remaining in the third period at Anaheim, but one goal in three games is hardly worthy of praise. Through seven games, the Sabres have scored eight goals and are shooting 4.9% as a team. Jordan Eberle, RW, Edmonton – Generated one shot attempt (missed the net) in 19:30 against Washington and was beaten down in possession (7 shot attempts for, 22 against, 24.1%). Craig Adams, RW, Pittsburgh – It isn’t so much that Adams had a zero Corsi Wednesday against Philadelphia, because he played all of 6:13 at even strength, but it’s a continuation of a recent bad run that includes three shot attempts for and 14 against (17.6%) in the past three games. PLUS/MINUS Capitals D John Carlson scored a goal and registered a team-leading seven shot attempts (3 SOG)…Ducks G Fredrik Andersen stopped 22 of 23 shots by the Sabres and has a .951 save percentage in six starts… Brayden Schenn, C, Philadelphia had a strong possession game (13 shot attempts for, 1 against, 92.9%) at Pittsburgh…Penguins C Brandon Sutter was minus-4 despite having a solid possession game (12 shot attempts for, 9 against, 57.1%)…Oilers D Jeff Petry played more than 20 minutes, but did register six giveaways. FIRSTS 29-year-old Flyers C Pierre-Edouard Bellemare scored his first career goal, and put five shots on goal, while playing 15:49 at Pittsburgh. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Capitals C Jay Beagle got into his first game of the season, played 15:47, and had strong possession stats (19 shot attempts for, 8 against, 70.4%) at Edmonton. Much of the data included comes from,, and Scott Cullen can be reached at Tracy Mcgrady Jersey .Stanton suffered fractures in his face and other injuries when he was hit by a pitch Sept. 11. The Marlins are confident hell fully recover and be ready for spring training, and they hope to reach a long-term agreement with him. Jakob Poeltl Raptors Jersey . Louis Blues brought in the premier unrestricted free agent centre, and did it without breaking the bank.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney wanted to find out more about his teams collective character ahead of Saturdays season finale against the Revolution. And he certainly did, but not in the manner he imagined.After keeping the post-season bound Revolution at bay for much of the first half, Toronto found themselves on the wrong side of a controversial call that allowed Lee Nguyen to score the game-winner and were forced to stomach a 1-0 loss at Gillette Stadium.On the play in question, Jose Goncalves played a ball down the wing to Chris Tierney, who appeared to be in an offside position when the pass was made. The linesman raised his flag, but referee Ricardo Salazar never blew his whistle, as Tierney played it inside the box for Nguyen, who took a couple of touches before he slotted it through in front of a pair of Toronto defenders who had their hands raised.I thought we were excellent, Vanney said. I think that the missed call that ends being a goal was a kick in the groin for our guys, emotionally because, at the end of the day, were digging deep to play with everything that we have in this game.Although the goal stood at the end of 90 minutes, Vanney was pleased with the way his club — which was eliminated from post-season contention last week — performed against the second-place Revolution.Leading up to what many had deemed a meaningless match for both sides, Vanney stressed the importance of possession and playing sound defence. And to Torontos credit, they stayed faithful to that approach.On the last night of a disappointing regular season, the Reds held the possession at a 59.3 per cent clip and completed 82.5 per cent of their passes. By taking care of the fundamentals, they were able to create opportunities.In the eighth minute,, Dominic Oduro crossed it inside the area, where Gilberto blasted it full volley off the crossbar, signalling to the 32,677 on hand that Toronto wouldnt go quietly into the off-season. Pascal Siakam Raptors Jersey. We dominated the ball, and we were focused and committed to the match, Toronto captain Steve Caldwell said. I think, overall, 50/50 (balls) we were excellent. But we probably couldve created more chances.Despite winning the possession battle, Torontos opportunities would be few and far between for the duration of the game. Gilbertos shot would be the only shot on goal for the guests before halftime, and they wouldnt fare much better after the break.Torontos best chance at equalizing came in the 75th minute. Mark Bloom crossed it ahead for Luke Moore in front of frame, where he snapped a header that Bobby Shuttleworth tipped over the bar.We came into second half forgetting about what had happened (on Nguyens goal), Caldwell said. We had a lot of the ball, and we left a little bit behind (defensively), which we had to do to get chances.While the gambles going forward didnt hurt Toronto on the scoreboard, the advances failed to produce the equalizer. But even though they came up short, Vanney credited his players for their collective effort.In Vanneys view, the team never deviated from the game plan — take care of the ball — even after Nguyens controversial goal. They couldve sulked about it and let their emotions get the best of them. Instead, they recommitted themselves after the break, and went toe-to-toe with the playoff-bound Revolution for the final 45 minutes.Im proud that they went with what we tried to do, Vanney said. I thought they were doing it very well, and that for me shows a lot of character and a lot of thought and togetherness.
