G15 2016-11-11 Remember the sacrifice, but not this game

Game Notes EDM vs DAL


Dallas Stars (Head Coach: Lindy Ruff) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #211, Rogers Place, 2016-11-11 07:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Stars 3-2

Referees: Graham Skilliter, Trevor Hanson
Linesmen: Mark Wheler, Trent Knorr

Three Stars: Kari Lehtonen; Tyler Pitlick; Tyler Seguin

  • So the first Dallas goal was in the first minute of the game (again), and the second was in the first 10 seconds or so of the first powerplay. something something ready to play something.
  • Fact is, the Oilers often look like they sh*t the bed in the entire first game back from a long road trip, so maybe just doing that for parts of all three periods is actually an improvement. Plus the Stars are on a 5 in 7 and missing 6 of their top 9, so no doubt they went for the fastest start possible.
  • Truth be told, this felt like a bit of a trap game, like the Buffalo game. The Oilers had two big sags in the game, and gave up goals on both. Plus that putrid first PK. Both teams had their moments, and I’m still wondering how the puck stayed out of the Dallas net in the last minute, but despite the excellent fancystats, overall I didn’t think it was a great game for the Mighty Oil.
  • Eberle’s ‘also in picture’ on the losing goal was oh so Gagner-esque.
  • Talbot hasn’t been the problem lately, but he hasn’t been superhuman the way he was earlier in the season either. Lehtonen, for all his leaky reputation, was stellar this game.
  • The Stars may be a bit of a tire fire defensively, but their forechecking and checking through the neutral zone is really quite ferocious. The Oilers caved against it quite a bit. I’ll be interested to see whether @Wheatnoil’s zone exit data matches my impression this game.
  • Slight breakaway aside, Looch still looks mostly down in the dumps to me, but I saw some nasty physical presence from him, which is a must from him. Needs to get going again pretty quick.
  • “Smithers, who is that dashing Finn on the ice?” “That’s Lauri Korpikoski, sir. He’s one of your bench-moisteners from sector 7-G.” “Korpikoski, eh?”
  • Pyler T’s 20% sh% aside and the Nuge line’s incredible possession, I’m still finding the Oilers often somewhat tough to watch when McDavid is not on the ice.

  1. Hi G. First time posting on your site. I really like your stat of D shots given up. From what I see these are straight up, non filtered, no BS, no nothing….. just an opponent that takes a shot in the heat of the battle. No QOC, no TOI, no BS, no rel, no blocked, no nothing.

    Just shot location and type of shot ! Is that correct? Doesn’t matter if it was blocked, wide, on net, off net, blocked, off a foot or wide by a foot. In the heat of the battle, a guy wound up and took a shot at net. That’s it.

    Is my understanding of your explainer correct

    1. Hi Lloyd! That’s correct, no filter or anything else, these are shots on net given up when that given D pairing was on the ice.

      The other stats I provide give other aspects of the picture, but the shot maps I find are really the most intuitive one by far.
