The teams with the best Power play units

The special teams have been a big story in NCAA Hockey this season. Many of the top teams in the country have strong power play units, and that has helped them to rack up wins. Here are three teams that have been especially dangerous with the man advantage.

1. St. Cloud State
The Huskies have the best power play in the country, converting on 29.4% of their opportunities. They have scored 33 goals on 113 power play chances, and that has been a big reason why they are one of the top teams in the nation.

2. Providence
Providence has been nearly as good as St. Cloud State on the power play converting on 28.9% of their chances. The Friars have scored 30 goals on 104 power play opportunities, and that has helped them to compete for a spot in the NCAA tournament

The teams with the best penalty kill units

In order to have a successful season it’s important for a Hockey Team to have a strong penalty kill unit. The penalty kill is when the opposing team has a power play and the team tries to prevent them from scoring. The teams with the best penalty kill units are usually the ones that make it far in the playoffs.

So, who are the teams with the best penalty kill units in the Ecac Mens Hockey standings? As of right now, the top three teams are Cornell, Yale, and Clarkson. All three of these teams have a penalty kill percentage of over 80%. This means that they’re doing a great job of preventing their opponents from scoring on the Power Play
