STAT OF THE DAY: Mr. October

Every weekday afternoon ,when we actually remember ,we'll be taking a look at various stats about the Penguins. Feel free to email us if you have any you want to share.

Today's stat comes from our good friends at Pensburgh.


A big time James Neal stat.


Jimmy for Pensburgh with some homework here:

Here’s a tip for you guys – in the last two months of October James Neal has 13 goals and 13 assists in 24 games. He’s a very fast starter. So I’ll say he unleashes a rocket an assist from Malkin for the first goal of the year….And it’ll be the power play, no less


How sick is that? Calling the first goal of the year.

Noticed this too. Seems like the NHL isn't quite ready to put the Atlanta Thrashers to bed. Look at this from James Neal's split stats page on

Apparently James Neal played against the Jets when he was like 12.
