Helm's hit parade
Here are some of the basics ...
- Helm leads the Red Wings in playoff hits with 66 entering tonight's Game 5 of the Western Conference final. Second on the team is Dan Cleary with 45. Helm has 47 percent more hits than Cleary in the same number of games and in 37 percent less ice time.
- Helm's 66 hits are fourth in the NHL for the post-season.
- Here's how much more frantic Helm's post-season pace has been: He has 66 hits in 15 playoff games. He had 37 hits in 15 regular-season games. And the ice time isn't the difference. He has 66 playoff hits in 161:35, 37 regular-season hits in 198:55.
- Last spring, Helm had 28 hits in 18 playoff games, 135:04 of ice time.
