Article up on the Athletic on the Jets PK woes: What is the problem with Winnipeg's penalty kill? I mentioned this stat the other day - the Jets aren't just bad at limiting chances (xGA/60) on the PK, they're in a class of their own. "When it comes to giving up shots and shots with the highest chance of going in, Winnipeg is an island." Good news, everybody: "Overall, Winnipeg has played 24.23 minutes against 3F2D power plays and given up 86.7 shot attempts per 60 minutes while doing so. Thanks to impossibly sterling .950 save percentage and two shorthanded goals, Winnipeg is actually outscoring opposing 3F2D power plays." Bad news, everybody: "Against 4F1D power plays [this is where most of the minutes have been played], Winnipeg gives up 93.2 shots per 60 minutes, or just over three shots against every two-minute penalty kill. Worse than that, they give up 149.1 shot attempts per 60 minutes, roughly five shot attempts per two-minute kill. Those numbers are league leading — and not in the good way ... In short: Winnipeg gives up more shots, more shots from further away both as a total and as a proportion of all shots against, and more rebounds both as a total and as a percentage of total shots." There's a good rundown of what a typical Jets PK formation looks like and what each player is trying to do. He points out that the Jets PK is operating as designed (getting in shooting lanes, preventing cross-seam passes, 'keeping it to the outside'...but it's pretty easy to open up lanes with some movement) - the theory is to allow quantity vs. quality. Unfortunately: "In practice, the Jets are getting pillaged in terms of quantity and quality."
