The boxscore says Gaborik only got 1g, 1a. The empty netter was unassisted.

those stats are correct, although, i would say, he should have had a second. so many chances, seems a bit laissez faire in 1-0 chances, as he is in the shootout. (might want to try shooting high stick side rather than use that backhand to five-hole move-the move seems beneath him).. he is obviously till the MAN, but i dare say he could be scoring 2 goals a game more frequently.
