BW Charts for Jets vs Senators, Devils 1/16 & 1/17

Damn fancy pads.

It was a tale of two games on the scoreboard, one a solid shutout for Chris Mason & Co., the other a pretty humiliating defeat against a middle-tier opponent. Looking at the BWs, both games had a little different storyline than the final scores, something worth remembering as we go forward.

Key

Vertical blue lines -- Our goals

Vertical black lines -- Their goals

Shaded green -- Powerplays

Shaded pink -- Penalty kills

  • A 2-0 final score doesn't do the Jets' performance justice in this one. From the outset, we were outplaying and outshooting the Sens, including taking advantage of our powerplays (even though we didn't score in them).
  • The late "slide" should probably be viewed as a score effect, aka "protecting the lead." Of course, taking a penalty in the final minute doesn't help, but hey, we do shit like that.

  • Yeah, it was 5-1, and yeah we took an absolute dump within a 15 minute window of time. Pepper in a few penalties here and there and, on the surface, it looked horrendous on the ice.
  • Differential-wise, though, we didn't look too bad. You should always allow for score effects to take place in the 3rd period, but in the 1st and 2nd that was legitimately us sticking in there and trying to come back. It takes a lot to do that when the pucks had been flying into your net.
  • The brief possibility of a comeback in the 3rd (Thanks, Toby!) was blown by a Devils goal 5 minutes later. What I gather from both of these BWs is that the Jets are a solid team, even in defeat - though the question remains whether we can challenge the big dogs.
