- Not going to talk about the embarrassment that is NHL refereeing. It was a good effort from a still-sick team and the Oilers deserved better.
Game at a Glance
The data is interesting this game – this is the first time that I’ve seen Dangerous Fenwick swing the opposite side from Corsi. Or to put it another way, despite losing the shot attempt battle, the Oilers had the more dangerous overall shots. Some of which you can see in the fact that the Oiler shots were closer overall.
|CF%||SACF%||FF%||DFF%||SF%||Avg Dist F||Avg Dist A||RelDist%||GF%|
(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 first goal is rated high danger, but it really wasn’t. The flaw in a distance rather than location based danger measurement.

Distance of Unblocked Shots Allowed
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.
Another tough game for Nurse, at least by DFA/60. I’m convinced he’s sick. Fayne was OK most of the night, despite his soft play on the Talbot giveaway.
TMc had the blender going a bit more this game, with a number of combos going. By the Danger statistics, Reinhart looked a hell of a lot better with Sekera than he did with Gryba, albeit in very minimal time. Sekera also looked better than he did with Nurse. Gryba and Klef looked good too, but not much time either.
|E. Gryba Klef||02:25||5.0||52.0||0.23|
|A. Sekera G. Reinhart||03:19||14.5||41.5||0.40|
|M. Fayne Klef||11:12||16.1||40.8||0.76|
|G. Reinhart E. Gryba||09:22||60.9||30.6||1.19|
|A. Sekera D. Nurse||10:55||87.4||31.0||1.13|
I drop pairings with less than 2:00 min TOI, but these are what cause the difference between the individuals and the main pairings.
Player Head to Head Charts
New chart format, adds TOI and EV CF% to each chart. Note: all 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.
Great game from Teddy P, and it shows.
