Indeed. But that's why I use adjusted 5-on-5 for the graph, to minimize the influence of score effects as much as possible. It's part of why the first period looked and "looked" so good—we just kept pushing no matter what, even when we took the lead.

It is!

I get the idea behind it but how exactly does one "adjust" for 5-on-5? ... probably not the best place to ask, but I've always wondered.

When you ask 93,,, sometimes it's best not to know his answer. :P

 

Hanley had 9:14 TOI. so far.

It's a complex formula involving Quantum Therriens and the Bettman Theorem.  Better not to know.

30,000 feet explanation:

Smarter, more talented people than I have worked out the probabilities that a team in the NHL will be at one of the seven score states (>= -3, -2, -1, Tied, +1, +2, <= 3). Therefor, we can weigh the events which happen at a certain score state based on the probability that the home/away team would produce them at that level.

Therefor, we can weigh the events which happen at a certain score state based on the probability that the home/away team would produce them at that level.

I think I actually get it on some very basic level, had to read it over and over again for a few minutes, but then I tried to wrap my head around the first few paragraphs of that link and went to the fridge.

If tonight is the turning point, and we play like this more often than we play like we have in the last half decade, there's a lot to be happy abou;. There's no real tangible reason why it can't be, either.

That said, because of a few self-inflicted and "intangible" reasons, I doubt it will be.

If you can out-play and out-possess a Corsi juggernaut like LA, then you should theoretically be able to do that to any other team as well. The Habs have the skill and speed to be able to do it, and for the most part it's been Therrien standing in the way of this type of success with his "grit first" and "we must play DD the most at all cost" and "rah rah for Murray and Bouillon and Weise." He's still got 4th liners up and down the line-up but at least now they're guys with enough speed that they don't hurt us as much (and in fact are actually playing well, though I have my doubts that any of Byron, Danault, or Mitchell will stay at current pace and score 25 goals a year.)

Basically, if you're interested in exactly how a game went down as a sort of sports historical sense, all situations is what you want to look at it. You can tell exactly what happened when.

I'm not so interested in that. We're watching the game, after all. Adjusted 5-on-5 is a way to see into the game and maybe project a bit into the future.

 

Also, Dustin Brown is a scumbag.
