NEW! Head to head charts for Corsi, Danger Adjusted Fenwick, and Time On Ice. Also experimenting with showing ‘average unblocked shot distance allowed’ for defensemen (individuals and pairs).
- To be outworked by a lousy team playing 5 in 7 is beyond pathetic. Just look at the chart below. The Flames were the better team from start to finish. That is horrifying. Hang your heads in shame.
- Andrew Ference cannot play another game for the Oilers. Cannot. Sitting Fayne for Ference is something that TMc has to wear.
- Cam Scrivens. You know, I wrote in my goalie articles during the summer that Talbot would be elite, but I was worried about the ‘starters dip’ that chewed up Dubnyk and Scrivens. I thought after his really strong start to the season that we’d be OK. Man, I’m really worried again. That was terrible, even before the horrendous last goal.
- Is there a professional sport out there with worse reffing than the NHL? (I’m including the NBA and the NFL)
Game at a Glance
|CF%||SACF%||FF%||DFF%||SF%||Avg Dist F||Avg Dist A||RelDist%|
(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 last goal is clearly an example where using just the distance does not always give an adequate reflection of the actual shot. The danger rating should be, what, 0.01?
Shot Type and Distance
SA, SF, SF% – Shots For, Against, %; DIST F, A – Average shot distance for and against; REB F, A – rebound shots for and against.
The average CGY shot was from 33 ft away, while the Oilers shots averaged 35 ft away – the Flames were 4% closer. Again, not acceptable, and an absolutely pathetic effort by the Oilers. The histograms below show the breakdown by distance range.
Even Strength / Shot Count and Distances (ft)
|For||3 / 16.7||–||10 / 44.6||2 / 24.0||–||–||1 / 10.0|
|Against||7 / 35.3||–||10 / 40.8||2 / 22.0||3 / 19.3||1 / 9.0||1 / 30.0|
All Situations / Shot Count and Distances (ft)

Distance of Unblocked Shots Allowed
I’m trying out a new data display – showing the average distance of shot allowed and average ‘danger rating’ and Danger Fenwick rate per 60 for the defensemen and defensive pairings.
The DFA/60 clearly shows Ference and Gryba in their own area code of badness – though I’m a bit surprised to see how far ‘Anton Sekera’ went to try and match them.
I dropped pairings with less than 2:00 min TOI.
|Klef B. Davidson||17:25||14:57||17.7||36.7||0.63|
|A. Sekera D. Nurse||15:53||15:24||45.2||31.6||0.96|
|Ference E. Gryba||11:32||11:19||49.3||32.6||0.93|
Player Head to Head Charts
Note: all of the previous tables of Fenwick and Corsi, along with breakdowns of players, defensive pairings, and forward lines is now embedded in the game summary CSV downloaded at the bottom of the page. Instead, I’ll simply be publishing the head to head time, Corsi, and Danger Fenwick charts.
