Most goals without a power-play score (NLL)

When I worked in the NHL, I used to like to look at who piled up some goals without the benefit of a power-play goal. I always figured that such players represented untapped offensive talent.

Here's the list of the leaders in the NLL from 2016:

Name - Team - Goals
Miles Thompson - Georgia - 19
Chad Tutton - Georgia - 14
Jordan MacIntosh - Georgia - 13
Mitch Jones - Buffalo - 11
Chris Wardle - Colorado - 10
Chad Culp - Buffalo - 9
Karsen Leung - Calgary - 9
Kevin Brownell - Buffalo - 8
Ilija Gajic - Colorado - 8
Josh Gillam - Rochester - 8

And here are the ones from 2015; Kevin Buchanan is your two-year champ:

Name - Team - Goals
Kevin Buchanan - New England - 21
Joe Walters - Rochester - 20
Joey Cupido - Colorado - 16
Karsen Leung - Calgary - 11
Mark Cockerton - New England - 11
Corbin Tao - Minnesota - 11
Joel White - Minnesota - 10
Andrew Suitor - New England - 10
Cliff Smith - Vancouver - 8
Creighton Reid - Colorado - 8
Brock Sorenson - Toronto - 8
Mitch Jones - Buffalo - 8
Jordan Gilles - Colorado - 8

Most Bandits goals in three consecutive games (1992 - 2016)

Buffalo's end-of-the-season explosion of goals - 57 in three games - prompted this check of the record book. It turned out it didn't crack the Top Ten. It was a different era then. Buffalo didn't come close in 2016:

Goals - Dates
69 - 12/30/00 to 1/20/01
69 - 2/28/92 to 3/13/92 (three straight 20-goal games)
68 - 3/7/92 to 3/21/92
67 - 2/10/96 to 3/2/96
66 - 2/24/96 to 3/9/96
65 - 2/8/92 to 3/7/92 (three straight 20-goal games)
64 - 1/20/01 to 2/3/01
63 - 2/3/01 to 2/16/01
62 - 1/6/01 to 1/27/01
60 - 1/25/92 to 2/28/92

And we have to check the lowest three-game totals in recent history too (1992 to 2016); the Bandits only had one game in 2016 with fewer than nine goals:

Goals  - Dates
22 - 3/21/14 to 3/29/14
22 - 4/12/14 to 4/19/14
23 - 4/7/07 to 4/14/07
25 - 3/23/13 to 4/6/13
25 - 3/31/07 to 4/13/07
26 - 3/15/14 to 3/23/14
26 - 3/9/13 to 3/23/13
27 - 4/9/11 to 4/23/11
27 - 1/9/10 to 1/22/10
27 -  3/2/08 to 4/12/08
