What's hockey? I want pretty pictures and graphs.
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 @ Carolina Hurricanes on Febuary 22th, 2013:
Yes We Cane:
This is far and away the ugliest chart we have seen in ages, but the Jets got the win. The Jets were beyond overdue for a few bounces and they definitely got a few here.
The first period was a mess, but I am a little surprised at how even the Fenwick was. The Jets started the 2nd period with a little more bed crapping, but the Jets turned it around at about the 33 minute mark. From there on out, the rest of the game was pretty even.
The Jets weren't the better team last night, but an ugly win is a win.
