The Commute Sports
Sports Data Visualizations and Analysis for the Average Sports Fan
A goal for this site is to create more interactive content for everyone. I decided to start with this: an interactive dashboard looking at individual shot data from the NHL.
While teams do score with the extra attacker, about 34% of the goals scored in the last 5 minutes are against the team who pulled the goalie.
The next day however Model 1 and Model 2 went 23-7. They both correctly picked 77% of bets right.
The extremes of the Fenwick measure are some very dominant and very poor teams. The 2014-15 and 2013-14 Buffalo Sabers certainly take the cake for some of the worst teams recently.
There clearly is one large outlier last season. The Tampa Bay Lightning had 62 wins and a Corsi of 236
The most extreme angle on either side is from the Chicago Blackhawks whose on wing shots were from a median angle of 22.6.
We see Jonathan Quick with a median goal angle of -8.1, meaning most of the goals he allowed last season was on his glove side.
What I find interesting are the small pockets outside of that cluster…
