Here’s a fun look at categorical snapshots of NHL clubs at the 48 games played mark in 2011-12.
It’s important to note, this isn’t focused on schedule or date of when they reached 48 games played, it’s a snapshot of each team at exactly 48 games regardless of when they played their 48th game.
Ottawa played their 48th game of the season earlier than the Boston Bruins. That was not taken into consideration.
I’ve housed all this in a google doc, with multiple tabs at the bottom of the different categories.

There are three major components:
1 – Offensive team stats like goals and power play data from 2011-12 at the 48 GP mark
2 – Individual player points for all NHL teams at the 48 GP mark of 2011-12. If a player didn’t reach 48 GP, they aren’t included in the listings.
3 – Player penalties accumulated at 48 GP
WHAT ABOUT ADVANCED STATS
Of course, we can’t just have traditional stats, that would be incomplete. Using the scripts from timeonice.com here are the stats for all NHL teams at the 48 GP mark.

Some notes on this:
Anaheim , Los Angeles and Pittsburgh all have 47 GP, due to each team missing information from each game and I didn’t add the next game as the 48th to compensate. I figured that one game can’t make that much of a difference from the overall totals. These results are adequately representative as a snapshot of each team at the 48 games played mark. Also, this is more fun and information rather than strict analysis, one game isn’t going be a difference maker.
Los Angeles is missing game number 20259 vs Anaheim.
Anaheim is missing the same game information on their side.
Pittsburgh is missing game number 20713 versus Washington, which is freaky enough, the exact 48th game.
