Dennis Wideman has been a big help for the Calgary Flames with the man advantage.
Calgary ranks sixth this season with a 29.4% power-play success rate. Wideman has personally chipped in with two power-play assists, but Flames coach Bob Hartley thinks he's done even more than the numbers imply. "Puck control. Vision," said Hartley. "Every other team, they really respect his shot. Obviously, if they don't pay attention to him, he's going to shoot. We all know the quality of his shot. And if they pay attention to him, that opens other guys. He's bringing us a totally new dimension." Wideman leads the Flames in total power-play ice time.
