The number in bracket indicates league rank. For most of the misc stats I've only included the road numbers because of concern for scorers bias.

Some of my observations:

  • Although we were only 4 points better than last year there's a few underlying numbers that suggest the team improved a lot more. There is a big improvement in goal differential and Fenwick tied.
  • Not a whole lot of change in goaltending performance which was below average for both teams.
  • Special team results were also pretty similar. This years team got was not able to generate as many shots on the powerplay although they had a much higher shooting % which kept the overall results similar.
  • One area for concern are the penalties taken and drawn. Both show noticeable dropoffs.
  • A lot more hits from the Jets
  • Missed shots were high for both teams.
  • The takeaway and giveaway numbers have both improved
