G64 2016-02-28 – Oilers vs Brooklyn Tree Sweaters (?)

Game Notes EDM vs NYI


New York Islanders (Head Coach: Jack Capuano) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #936, Rexall Place, 2016-02-28 07:30:00PM (GMT -0700)

Oilers 3-1


Referees: Dan O’Halloran, Greg Kimmerly
Linesmen: Scott Driscoll, Ryan Galloway

Three Stars: Cam Talbot; Taylor Hall; Anton Lander

  • The losing streak is over!
  • That was full value for the win. Many people suggesting it was all about the effort, but I thought the effort against LA and ANA was decent too.   The difference is that NYI are a good middleweight on the road, while LA and ANA are top heavyweights at home.
  • The fancystats call it mostly even or even edge to Isles, but that’s where the gameflow helps.  In fact, the Oilers were the better team for almost the entire game, but it was the huge pushback by the Isles in the last five minutes that evened it up. Doesn’t hurt that Talbot was by far and away the superior goalie.
  • Speaking of which.  TAL-BOT.
  • Kassian was called for a clean shoulder to shoulder hit.  Meanwhile, the hit that injured Poo (watch it in slo mo) was a slash, a trip, a hit from behind, AND interference all rolled into one delightful package. No call.  This is a regular happenstance.  You don’t have to buy into any conspiracy theory – most if not all are nonsense – but there is NO WAY you can convince me the Oilers get a fair shake from the referees.  Not just costing games, but costing players their health. It’s garbage.

I’m debuting some cool new charts and tables today, along with reducing some of the other tables, check them out and let me know what you think.

Defensemen

He scored the last goal, but Davidson (by the numbers) was a little less solid than usual, paired with the rookie Oesterle.  That said, again, the gameflows are quite helpful.  The pairing held their own most of the game, except for a disastrous shift right in the middle.

Quite a decent game from Nurse. Never really noticed him, and that’s usually quite a good thing for a rookie D.  Sekera & Fayne were terrific.

Defense Pairings WOWY

Each pairing (>2:00 EVTOI) is shown, along with how the individuals on that pairing did without each other on the ice. The axes show DangerousFenwick rates for and against. Note the reversed DFA axis. This lets the chart read naturally, where bottom left is bad and top right is good The dotted line shows the breakeven line.
