G9 2015-10-25 Oilers vs Los Angeles – shot and distance data

NEW! Head to head charts for Corsi, Danger Adjusted Fenwick, and Time On Ice.

I’ll be continuing to refine the format and presentation of this page.  For this go-round, I’m publishing mostly charts, and the full volume of detailed data is available as downloadable CSV’s if you want to use the numbers for any follow-on analysis.  Let me know if you find any errors, this is very much in development.  Feedback and suggestions welcome.


  • Another weak start … need to start faster, boys.
  • Hope Schultz is OK.  Yeah, I know he was terrible tonight.  But who’s going to replace him, Ference?
  • Klefbom looks lost out there.  Again.  SNAP OUT OF IT! (in fairness, the numbers do suggest that Klefbom was brutal in his pairing with Schultz, but did just fine without him.  By my eye, I thought he struggled for much of the game, though, with or without Jultz)
  • Sekera is starting to look like the guy we hoped to get when he was signed.
  • Man the Kings just get away with murder.  If you haven’t seen it, this vine shows definitively that McDavid’s shot was a goal – and it wasn’t close. (h/t Striatic @ Lowetide)

The numbers below are probably a fair reflection of the game.  The Oilers were beaten by a better team – with liberal help from the men in stripes.

Goal Overview

(Note: “Danger” is my calculation of how dangerous this shot is relative to an average shot, given shot type and distance.  This is the number used in “Danger Adjusted Fenwick” below and in the chart above)

The average LA shot was from 37 ft away, while the Oilers shots averaged 33 ft away, or 10% closer.  The histograms below show the breakdown by distance range.
