Captain Brian Gionta not only led all wingers with an overall mark of 68, but he also ended the season with the top grade of any Montreal player.

1. Brian Gionta (68)
2. Max Pacioretty (67)
3. Mathieu Darche (66)
4. Travis Moen (64)
5. Andrei Kostitsyn (62)
6. Mike Cammalleri (62)
7. Tom Pyatt (61)
8. Benoit Pouliot (60)
9. Ryan White (60)

#21 Brian Gionta

Gionta's 68 was 5 percentage-points above the season average. He was the top point producer of any winger, and led the group in offensive-zone passing percentage (87%). Gionta also led the group in successful defensive-zone puck-battles, and defensive-zone blocked shots. He was among the leaders in successful neutral-zone puck-battles.

#67 Max Pacioretty

Pacioretty had the second-best success-rate for offensive-zone puck-battles and shoot -ins. He was tops in neutral-zone puck-battles, but was only able to get 40% of his shots through to the net.

#52 Mathieu Darche

Darche led the group in offensive-zone puck-battle winning percentage, and was among the leaders in successful shoot-ins. His defensive-zone puck-battle number was below average, as was his defensive-zone passing. That said, he had 4 more defensive-zone takeaways than giveaways.

#32 Travis Moen

Moen excelled where he should. He led the group in defensive-zone puck-battle winning percentage, while his success-rate for dump-ins was substantially better than the other wingers. His offensive-zone passing success rate was below average, while his defensive-zone passing grade was a brutal 38%.  Unfortunately that wasn't his lowest passing success-rate, as he completed only 14 % of his neutral-zone pass attempts.

#46 Andrei Kostitsyn

Kostitsyn had the second-most points and second-most shots among the group of wingers. His offensive-zone puck-battle winning percentage was slightly below average, while his success-rate when attempting to beat players 1on1 in the offensive-zone (OZDEAK%) was only 29%. Kostitsyn averages only 1 defensive takeaway for every 4 d-zone giveaway, but has the second-best success rate for defensive-zone passing.

#13 Mike Cammalleri

Cammaleri has the second-lowest offensive and defensive-zone puck battle winning percentage. His giveaway to takeaway ratio in both the defensive and neutral-zones are nearly 1 for 1 (very good), while his passing percentage in all 3 zones is below the team average. Cammalleri also has the lowest success-rate for shoot-ins.

 #94 Tom Pyatt

Pyatt has the lowest offensive-zone puck-battle winning percentage and the second-lowest defensive-zone puck battle winning percentage. His success-rate for defensive-zone passing and his success rate when attempting to carry the puck into the offensive-zone lead the group.

#67 Benoit Pouliot

Despite his size, Pouliot remains among the least successful forwards when battling for loose pucks. His success-rate for puck-battles in all 3 zones is below average, while his winning percentage in the neutral zone is the lowest among the team's wingers.

#53 Ryan White

White has the lowest success-rate for defensive-zone puck-battles to go along with the second-lowest rate for neutral-zone puck-battles. White's giveaway to takeaway ratio in both the defensive and neutral-zones are close to 1 to 1 (excellent), while his success-rates for dump-ins and skate-ins are well below average.

#21 Brian Gionta

Gionta's high grade against Boston is the product of his work through the neutral-zone. Number 21 was successful with 92% of his carry-ins and 88% of his dump-ins, while winning 63% of his defensive-zone puck-battles. Add his 4 points and 17 shots to the previously mentioned totals and we see whey the captain is leading the troops against the Bruins.

#52 Mathieu Darche

Darche has been a beast against Boston when it comes to puck-battles. Number 52 has won 60% of his offensive-zone puck-battles, and an impressive 73% of his defensive-zone puck-battles.
 

#67 Max Pacioretty

Pacioretty has 8 points and 11 shots against the Bruins. He was successful with 85% of his dump-ins, but won only 42% of his defensive-zone puck-battles.

#32 Travis Moen

Moen has made smart puck-plays against Boston. He's successfully skated the puck into the offensive-zone on 92% of his attempts, while successfully completing 84% of his dump-ins. That said, number 32 has won only 40% of the neutral-zone puck-battles he's engaged in.


#94 Tom Pyatt

Pyatt's low rating is due to his limited ice time, minus-2 rating, and 40% success-rate when engaging in defensive-zone puck-battles. Pyatt has had particular trouble along the half-wall in the defensive-zone. That said, Pyatt is a natural centre, and most of his troubles have come on his off-wing.

 #67 Benoit Pouliot

Pouliot has played better against Boston than the rest of the league, save maybe for Minnesota. He's won 55% of his offensive-zone puck-battles, 63% of his defensive-zone puck-battles, and a surprising 70% of his neutral-zone puck-battles. His giveaway ratio against Boston is 2 takeaways for every 3 giveaways; also better than his overall season average.

#13 Mike Cammalleri

Cammalleri's grade is the product of a minus-4 rating, only 1 point and 5 shots on net against Boston. He's won only 44% of his offensive-zone puck-battles, and successfully dumped the puck into the offensive-zone with only 67% of his attempts. That said, he's been above average in the neutral and defensive-zones; winning 63% of his defensive-zone puck-battles and a solid 75% of his neutral-zone puck-battles. His work in the neutral-zone leads all players in this group.


#53 Ryan White

White has been used sparingly against Boston. Partly due to a late call-up, but mostly due to some substantial penalty minutes. His main negatives have come in the faceoff circle, as he's lost all 3 of his offensive-zone faceoffs, as well as 3 neutral-zone giveaways. These metrics may not seem like much, but when ice time is limited, each metric becomes that much more important.

#46 Andrei Kostitsyn

Kostitsyn's grade is the result of a minus-6 rating and his disappointing work battling for pucks.  He's won only 48% of his offensive-zone puck-battles, 38% of his defensive-zone puck-battles, and an absolutely brutal 29% of his neutral-zone puck-battles against the Bruins this season. Number 46 average a 67 rating through the final 4 games of the season. Hopefully, he can carry that average into the playoffs.
