|TEAM||Team Shooting %||Team Save %||PDO|
Any thoughts from the commentariat before we prematurely bury the Los Angeles Kings? They’re just four points out of a playoff spot.
The Anaheim Ducks, though, have the dubious distinction of being the team furthest from “1” in the current rankings. Time to sell your stock in Viktor Fasth, if you have any.
A note on Calgary here: While they do have a low PDO and their Fenwick Close score is actually at a respectable 53.56%, they’ve played a large number of home games to start the season and I don’t think they fit the traditional mould of a team unlucky to start the season that’s going to rebound. I doubt their FenClose stays that high. Next week will be the first that I think legitimate conclusions will be able to be drawn from FenClose scores, so I’ll add those to the chart.
EDIT: I originally forgot to add this excellent tweet from our man who does Graphic Comments each week. The Canucks dropped two games this week after out-shooting and out-playing opponents, but getting some pretty lousy goaltending. Their PDO dropped from 1.046 to 1.025 this week:
Well, guess it’s been Pretty Damn Obvious that the #Canucks were due to lose a couple like the last two.
