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 individual game tables, so let's get at it!

Here is the Fenwick timeline for the Winnipeg Jets vs Boston Bruins on Febuary 17th, 2013:



One Shot Kills:

The story of this game is pretty darn simlilar to that of every game on this losing streak. The game was close and in this case was a real back and forth affair, but once again the Jets came up short. On the bright side, for two games in a row the Jets were right in the mix versus a very good teams, that part doesn't suck.

I can't explain the number of missed shots, but it is very clear that the Jets need to get a better percentage of their shots on the net. The Jets are struggling to score and struggling with shooting percentages, more shots on net can't hurt either of these issues. It is becoming apparent to me that the missed shots inflate the Jets Fenwick beyond what we see on the shot clock. Noel and team need to figure this out.
