|TEAM||Team Shot %||Team Save %||PDO||Fenwick Close|
- The Montreal Canadiens dipped just under a percentage point in PDO thanks to their inability to beat Ryan Miller this week, resulting in a 3-2 overtime loss and a 2-1 regulation loss to one of the league’s worst teams, despite out-shooting the Sabres 31-13 and 34-14. Those two wins also propelled Buffalo from a .999 PDO to a 1.004 PDO. The Sabres also had a shootout win over the Maple Leafs.
- Vancouver’s goaltending doesn’t appear to be .913 anymore—the team won four games in the last week, with their goaltending jumping seven points. Cory Schneider was in net for each game.
- Everything Pittsburgh is shooting is going in. To be fair, we do know that star players can expect higher individual shooting percentages than not-star players. Chris Kunitz is shooting 26.4%. Paul Martin is shooting 17.1%. Brandon Sutter is shooting 15.8%. Chris Kunitz is not a star player. Paul Martin is not a star player. Brandon Sutter is not a sprinkle.
- Something about the Ducks two-game losing streak, which does not at all prove that the Ducks are “regressing” in any way. The Florida Panthers also have a two-game losing streak and they have a lower PDO than them all.
- Florida is also somehow a plus-possession team. Did not see that coming.
- Go home, Columbus. You’re drunk.
