G30 2015-12-11 Oilers vs New York sort-of-ex-Sathers – shot and distance data

Commentary

WOW, that was a fun game!  Old time hockey for Glen Sather I guess.

  • We WON ONE FOR THE GOALIE! The goalie didn’t lose it for us. The goalie didn’t win it for us. The team ran up the score on last years Pres Cup winner (and previous years Stanley Cup finalists) and one of the top two goalies in the world. Man. MAN!!!!!
  • I am worried about Nilsson fatigue after 7 in a row. No data to support it, but given that a b2b back carries risk of poor performance, you have to think that long streaks might catch up to goalies as well.
  • Heretofore, I shall be typing Taylor Hall as Tay!or Ha!!  The letter ‘l’ just isn’t good enough.

I replaced the table with the charts, think it might be more useful, let me know.

Rumour has it that Padawan Klefbom might have a broken finger.

The injury played hell with the pairings.  The run and gun score masked a mostly OK defensive performance.

Sekera Nurse were super high event, but gave as good as they got.

Check out the Tay!or Ha!! line. Also the Korpikoski line had its best game in … ever.  Guess a hat trick can do that.
