Winnipeg Road Pirates Take One From The New Jersey Devils
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 @ New Jersey Devils on Febuary 24th, 2013:
A Devil Of A Good Time:
Another chart that ends with a tie. It is odd how often that has happened this year. The most striking thing about this game chart is that the Jets continues to pour on the pressure after they took a one goal lead. In many prior games, the Jets shut down completely after taking the lead. Does this mean our boys are playing a little less scared? I don't know, but it is encouraging. The Jets have been a pretty darn good team at 5 on 5. More confident play is good!
