CBS Sports’ power rankings: Fancy stats back up Larkin’s offensive pop

CBS Sports’ Austin Nivision posted a set of power rankings today, and he reports that Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin’s “fancy stats” back up his offensive flourishing:

21. Red Wings: Dylan Larkin is on pace for a career high in the goals category. On the one hand, that is driven by a 19.2 shooting percentage that is roughly 10 points higher than his career average. On the other, Larkin is 12th in the NHL in individual expected goals at five-on-five, so he is doing something right.
