  1. And, once again, Couture had 2 points (2 assists, on both goals 3 and 4), 5 assists in total.
  2. First of all, I think everyone is watching whether the Flames will be able to secure the deal for the new stadium. If not, then to Houston, or KC, or elsewhere in the Central they will go. Second, the league may just swap Arizona out into Central. Third, the league may relocate Arizona somewhere, too. I can't believe Bettman will run a 9+7+8+8 league, even the MLB gave up on such a disbalance. In a very long shot, however, I can see an NFL-like setup with 8 divisions: * VAN, EDM, CGY, SEA * SJS, ANA, LAK, VGK * WPG, MIN, CHI, STL * ARI, COL, DAL, NSH (crazy travel) ----------------------------------- * BOS, MTL, OTT, TOR * BUF, NJD, NYR, NYI * PIT, PHI, DET, CBJ * WSH, CAR, TBL, FLA 8 division winners and 2x4 best teams in each conference qualify. Schedule: In your own division: 4x3 = 12 games Outside your division, select division, rotates: 4x4 = 16 games Outside your division: 3x8 = 24 games Outside conference: 2x16 = 32 games Total: 84 games, too.
  3. It would rather be Interconference: 2x16 = 32 Intraconference, Interdivision: 3x8 = 24 Intraconference, Intradivision: 4x7 = 28 For the total of 84, where they already had been some time ago.
  4. Just relax and train Gudas for a Cindy Crosby welcome.
  5. Website A Page - A Day, Part VI - Warm Welcome Original post Prologue Part I Part II Part III Part IV Part V With nothing else to do for about half an hour, why not to resume the series? Have you wondered if it is your team, or your goalie, who always has the first career goal scored against them? Now you can check if your feeling is right. On the page 'Warm Welcome' of the League section on the website we present a look at the first goals scored against different teams and goalies. With the two left items in the top menu you can select the span over which you want to see the statistics. Want one season only? Select the same season for the start and for the end. Then you can toggle the view by the team or the goalie the first goal is scored against. For example, for the 2016/17 season, team view: # Team Goals Allowed 1 Dallas Stars 7 2 Carolina Hurricanes 7 3 New Jersey Devils 7 4 Tampa Bay Lightning 6 5 Ottawa Senators 6 6 Detroit Red Wings 5 7 Pittsburgh Penguins 5 8 New York Rangers 5 9 San Jose Sharks 5 10 Vancouver Canucks 5 11 Colorado Avalanche 5 12 Nashville Predators 4 13 Boston Bruins 4 14 Buffalo Sabres 4 15 Winnipeg Jets 4 16 Arizona Coyotes 3 17 Columbus Blue Jackets 3 18 Edmonton Oilers 3 19 Montreal Canadiens 3 20 Anaheim Ducks 3 21 St. Louis Blues 3 22 Los Angeles Kings 2 23 Washington Capitals 2 24 Calgary Flames 2 25 Minnesota Wild 2 26 New York Islanders 2 27 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 28 Chicago Blackhawks 2 29 Florida Panthers 2 30 Philadelphia Flyers 0 Take a look. You might be surprised. Or not.
  6. Original post. Part I After completing the first part of the lemma research - penalty box - the second part was shorter, easier, but just as useful. I decided to find out the share of time teams spend on average while at even strength, on power play/shorthanded and with empty net. Then given this number, and the number of goals scored in each such situation, I was able to calculate the frequency of EVG/PPG/SHG/ENG or the reverse of it which I called the difficult of such goal. I scanned the database of all games between the 1999/00 season and today, and all the goals extracted from these games. Penalty shot goals were ignored, regardless if during the game itself, or in post-game shootout. The EN time was calculated as total game time minus goaltender TOI. PP/SH time was deducted from the recorded PP TOI of the players. The EV time would naturally become the total game time minus EN minus PP of both teams. Then I calculated the difficulty of scoring a goal in each of these situations through the following formula: DiffTYPE = ( GOALSEV / GOALSTYPE ) x ( TOITYPE / TOIEV ) where the difficulty of the EV goal is considered "1". Here are the combined results of the difficulties in a table: Season EV PP SH EN 1999 1.000 0.502 3.506 0.162 2000 1.000 0.473 3.387 0.146 2001 1.000 0.492 3.635 0.153 2002 1.000 0.468 3.585 0.167 2003 1.000 0.445 3.127 0.221 2005 1.000 0.535 4.247 0.272 2006 1.000 0.506 4.000 0.228 2007 1.000 0.458 3.597 0.187 2008 1.000 0.438 3.745 0.183 2009 1.000 0.456 4.044 0.192 2010 1.000 0.450 3.517 0.177 2011 1.000 0.460 3.568 0.169 2012 1.000 0.430 3.890 0.169 2013 1.000 0.453 3.209 0.198 2014 1.000 0.427 3.564 0.171 2015 1.000 0.415 3.284 0.158 2016 1.000 0.419 3.252 0.178 2017 1.000 0.427 3.052 0.168 If you divide 1 by these values you can get the relative frequency of goals scored in each situation. The dataset containing this data is available on the website, on the Request Analysis page. So why did I need these two lemmas? That blog post won't be ready any time soon, and I better resume the "Page A Day series'.
  7. Original post Nothing derails from the regular blogging like a research that you've been so eager to start, but were putting off to finish simpler and more materialistic stuff, but then you couldn't hold it off any longer.But then, I realized that in order to do that research I need to perform a lemma research. Just like its mathematical namesake, a lemma research is one that is done for the sake of a bigger one, yet producing a useful result by itself.So I noticed that I needed the penalty box data. Who was in the penalty box during a power play goal? More specifically, who was responsible for that goal, i.e. who left the penalty box as the result (or had a non-matched 5-minute major penalty during it). Once there was a feed that had penalty box data, but it was only since 2010 or so, and it seems to have become discontinued. Therefore I gathered the game data I already had and just went through the power play goals from 1987/88 through now, and tried to match them with penalties, while weeding out all the cancelling and all the irrelevant (e.g. misconduct) ones.I am glad to tell that I was able to create a consistent, at least at first look, dataset. But before that I had to go in and correct penalty box entries for about 160 goals manually. About 35 of them were just forced to enter the penalty data manually, because any algorithm assigning the player in the box to the goal would be ambiguous. However I also discovered about 125 goals (120 pre 1999/00, when extra reports were introduced, and only five since) that should not even be marked as power play goals. There was no matching penalty. Of course, the mistake can be on the penalty data in the NHL report: the time of the penalty may be reported wrongly. But until further notice, these goals should not be considered PPG: GameID P Time Scorer Team 198720125 3 9:19 BOB SWEENEY Boston Bruins 198720134 3 18:58 RICK TOCCHET Philadelphia Flyers 198720239 1

  8. ProloguePart IPart IIPart IIIPart IVOriginal Post Well, the pace didn't last long, but we're back with Part V - Rink Repair StatisticsProbably, this is the least hockey related page of the website, but hey, we can do it, and it's actually pretty easy, so why not?The STOP events as listed in the Play-By-Play HTML summaries since the 2002/03 season on the NHL.com website contain the reason(s) for the stop. While most of them are game-based, such as ICING or OFFSIDE, one of the more rare ones caught our eye: RINK REPAIR. We decided to collect these stops and rank NHL home teams as well as NHL arenas by the amount of rink repairs that happened. We filter out the occasional venues, such as outdoor stadiums for NHL special events or the foreign arenas for the European showdown games.Since we already parse practically all events from the Play-By-Play summaries (or PL), and classify them by types, we already have a collection of STOP events. And we also detect and catalog the reasons for the stoppages, so it is an easy Mongo query to extract all rink repairs incurred. We then aggregate them by locations and teams, and create SQL tables for easy quick display of the data.And so we were able to assemble a nice set of tables displaying the level of maintenance in the rinks around the league. Here's a look at the 2016/17 season: Arena Repairs BARCLAYS CENTER 8 XCEL ENERGY CENTER 3 CANADIAN TIRE CENTRE 2 VERIZON CENTER 2 PEPSI CENTER 2 FIRST NIAGARA CENTER 2 NATIONWIDE ARENA 2 CENTRE BELL 2 WELLS FARGO CENTER 1 SCOTTRADE CENTER 1 ROGERS ARENA 1 REXALL PLACE 1 PRUDENTIAL CENTER 1 CONSOL ENERGY CENTER 1 BB&T CENTER 1 JOE LOUIS ARENA 1 HONDA CENTER 1 So the claims that the Islanders' current home has the worst ice has been substantial. For the last three years, actually, Barclays Center ranks among highest. Naturally, the old arenas like Canadian Tire Centre or Rexall Palace also seemed to get a lot of rink repairs during the games. You can switch the year of the display or the mode between 'By Team' and 'By Arena'. As with all the displayed tables on our site, there are links below it to see it in a pristine form, the direct link to the page for the selected season, and buttons to share it on Twitter and Facebook. Once again, it doesn't seem like a highly meaningful piece of work, but we consider it fun, and it took about quarter an hour to implement altogether. TODO: Aggregate show by a period rather than a single season Include arena ages (requires manual input of construction years)
  9. Well, there are two graph/graph-like pages. One is the one referred in this post, another one is West vs. East (see next blog post ) I can't pay for the services, sorry. Thanks for the offer, though. Credit or data is the only compensation I can suggest.
  10. ProloguePart IPart IIPart IIIAnd now we're putting two in a row with West vs. East.PART IVThis page shows the results of games between Eastern and Western Conference teams. The data is available from the year 1993, when Western and Eastern Conference were formed, from the Boxscore files.Shown from left to right: Regular West wins OT/SO West wins Ties(up to year 2005) OT/SO East wins Regular East wins Stanley Cup Winning Conference A total tally is available as well. As of the date of this post the standings are:WEST 2802 Reg. W - 595 OTW - 444 T - 541 Reg. W - 2570 Reg. W EASTWest holds a formidable lead which eroded a bit in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons. Before that the last time East won the count was back in 1998/99! The 2009/10 was the most lopsided season with the final score of 155-115 in West's favor.West won 14 times, East - 6. Once, in 2011/12 there was a tie with 134 wins apiece.The Stanley Cup winners are divided more evenly, however, with West holding the edge 13-10.There is no data for seasons 1994/95, 2004/05 and 2012/13 because of full or or partial season lockout. Also, the win-loss count from the Finals are not included.WE NEED YOUR HELP!If you are an experienced Webmaster, especially with Javascript and CSS we would greatly appreciate the potential tidy-up and enrichment you could provide to these graphs.

  11. Hey, and thanks for the interest. I'd like to have the graph more responsive, like showing the actual number on the bar when the mouse goes over. Also in the screens with composite stacked bars, I'd love to have the ability to have the components as checkboxes, and toggle them on/off on the graphs when necessary. And, of course, any advice, and for overall design as well, is welcome.
  12. Despite all the delays we move on to League's Yearly Tendencies.PART IIIThis view shows stacked bars of various event counts per season in the NHL.All the stats are presented per game, since the amount of games played varied every season. For the first time we encounter the stat selection menu, on top of the graphs. On this page it features the following options: Category of the stats Stage of the games (Regular or Playoff) Available stats are: Shots Goals (available since 1987, from Boxscore reports) Shots on Goal (available since 1987, from Boxscore reports) Misses (available since 2005, from PBP reports) Blocks (avaliable since 2005, from PBP reports) Icings (available since 2002, from PBP reports) Margin of victory (available since 1987, from Boxscore reports) Penalties Minor Major Fighting Misconduct Match Penalty Goals per Game The stats are available for regular season, playoffs and both stages combined.The PBP reports from the NHL dating before 2005 are wildly inconsistent, thus we didn't use them for MISSES and BLOCKS.We are using the wonderful d3js library for producing these graphs.WE NEED YOUR HELP!If you are an experienced Webmaster, especially with Javascript and CSS we would greatly appreciate the potential tidy-up and enrichment you could provide to these graphs.
