The Edmonton Oilers’ Putrid Performance Against the Central Division

Over at Cult of Hockey, Bruce McCurdy ran the numbers about the incredibly putrid performance of the Oilers against Pacific Division rivals.

In a couple of previous articles, I ran the numbers to show how teams did against only a subset of the better teams, Corsi-wise.

Bruce’s article made me wonder how the Oilers did Corsi-wise against the Pacific Division.  Is it as bad as the pts% suggests it is?

Pretty easy to change the script to find out.

So without any more fanfare, EV Corsi% (this is for the first 1166 games, so up to about a week ago) for teams vs each division.

With some goaltending, the Oilers’ future against PacDiv may not be as gloomy as the points performance suggests.    It’s those SOBs over in the Central we have to worry about … (Mind you, score effects might have something to say …)
