Drew Stafford hasn't scored a goal since March 31, a span of 17 games.

Even more amazing: Of the 300 players without a goal this season, nobody has come up empty more times than Stafford, who has 40 shots on goal, good for 29th in the league. "You just have to keep with it, keep working. You can't give up," Stafford said. "You can't let the negativity creep in. You can't show up to the rink the next day and be moping around because that just brings everyone else down. It's times like these that a good thing I like to say is, 'The game reveals your character.' Stafford, who had 51 goals over the last two seasons, is in the second year of a four-year, $16 million deal. He has a mere five assists on the season.
