The Staals draw the calls... Penalty Plus/Minus in the playoffs

Thanks to a prompt by Greg from The Puck Stops Here, I've calculated the Penalty Plus/Minus rankings for the playoffs so far, and the Staal brothers who are still playing (Eric in Carolina, Jordan in Pittsburgh) are leading the way with +6 figures each.

Feel free to comb through the Google Spreadsheet below to see how your favorite team and/or player is doing. What are some of the things that jump out at me? Ryan Getzlaf being tied for the worst value (-7) is partially a reflection of playing lots of ice time in two extended series, but all the same, a center who is relied upon for offensive performance shouldn't spend that much time sitting in the box.
