The Winnipeg Jets put forth a strong effort and played their way into a Fenwick lead before being undone by a 5 on 3.
Fenwick Timelines!! Many number munchers around the web will tout the value of Fenwick and Corsi when analyzing hockey. It tends to be the best long term predictor of future success and can offer a nice snap shot of just how effective a team has been.
Now before you turn off your brain and say "advanced stats are stupid", Fenwick is simply shots, posts and missed shots added together and it generally goes hand in hand with offensive zone time.
Now for your Winnipeg Jets: Thanks to some awesome work by Arctic Ice Hockey overlord Gabe Desjardins, via his hockey nerd haven www.behindthenet.ca individual game tables, so let's get at it!
Here is the Fenwick timeline for the Winnipeg Jets vs Pittsburgh Penguins on Febuary 15th, 2013:
Up and Adams:
The Jets first period struggles are very apparent here, but the late game takeover more than made up for it. The biggest takeaway here is how the Jets rebounded and actually built a bit of a cushion before the 5 on 3 that killed them.
As is always the case in a game this close, one bounce can be the difference and while Ondrej Pavelec wasn't awful he wasn't the best goalie on the ice. This has been the case if a few too many games this year.
