G54 2016-02-07 Oilers at Oilanders – shot and distance data

Game Notes

I’m trying to make some sort of clever joke around the fact that Oilers and Islanders sounds vaguely similar, both teams wear Orange and Blue, plus we have IslANDERS NILSSON and ANTON IsLANDERs … but I can’t.

  • So. Anders Nilsson. Where to from here?
  • I don’t have much of a recap after that.  Reading the fancystats at this point feels like reading an accident report for a car crash you just witnessed.
  • Before you pile too much on today’s team [lack of] effort, I will point out that the gameflows do show clearly that the Oilers had the better of the chances early and late, but packed it in for a while after giving up two soft goals.
  • Asking a team on the second of a back to back and third game in four days, on the road, to try to recover from that kind of letdown might be asking too much.
  • The pushback through the rest of the game was actually pretty impressive, and you can see how much closer the Oiler shots were than the Islanders shots. Take that with a grain of salt, as this kind of data cannot account for screened shots, of which the Isles had quite a few, which understates the danger of their chances.  Still, when it comes to balance of play, this wasn’t some grossly one sided train wreck.  This result is, more than anything else, from bad goaltending vs good goaltending.  
  • Most of the rest of the nonsense you’ll hear from the mainstream media is post facto rationalization in the context of two beatdowns in a row.  IMO, the beatdowns didn’t have much in common. The Montreal loss was actually more of a team-wide trashing, this was all about [lack of] goaltending early.
  • I’m not saying it was a good game – it wasn’t – but it was better than the score indicated (just as the CBJ and OTT scores were not nearly as good as the scores indicated). This is why you look at the stats underneath – to try and get an objective look at what happened.
  • So if your opinion of this team is based on these last two beatdowns, then you are being as foolish as someone who based their opinion of this team after the two beatdowns of CBJ and OTT. Seriously.
  • They get a day off to practice before NJD. I expect a better effort all round on Tuesday.

Game Flows

Looking at the game flows, you would NEVER know this was an 8-1 beatdown. That’s what happens when you get bad goaltending.  Sekera and Fayne look fantastic by the DangerFens; I didn’t think either were as good as the stats indicate, especially Fayne.

Rink Maps

Once again, TMc had the blender going, so my ‘top 3’ D pairings doesn’t show as much of the game as I’d like.

Danger Tables

Reinhart had such a weird game.  He was -4 on the night, but I thought he was in the right place on every one of those four. On the other hand, he had a pretty bad game, but where he did make mistakes, the team didn’t get burned (except for the two penalties).

  1. First of all griffin Reinhart needs to go to the ahl and stay there until he is fully developed. Darnell should get the same developement. Dont ruin them.
    Second thing is we have needed 2 true 1-4 dmen. We crapped the bed with Petry.
    Third thing is quit playing Shultz. He has been a liability most of his time here. The blame is not solely on his shoulder. Management and coaching play a part of his lack of success.
    Forth thing is quit with the excusses. If you have true heart and competivness you bring everything you have to the last whistle. You are playing for team and self pride.
