Midseason trends: Welcome to the year of the comeback Very interesting article with some analytics which I consider good to follow. Based upon the article... - 13.2% of games have involved a team coming down from a multigoal deficit. Florida Panthers have only won 4 of 13 games where they had the lead yet has won 6 of 15 when getting scored on first. Lol. - A big part in the uptick of scoring is that powerplay have been up for almost every team including the Lightning who are sporting a 30% PP. Sounds like instead of having two solid units, teams are loading the first unit and letting them play like 70% of the PP. - Anaheim, Philadelphia, Arizona, Dallas, Ottawa, and LA all lead the league in most man-games lost. - The healthiest teams have been the Sharks, Blue Jackets, Wild, Leafs, and Jets in that order. - Highest PDO teams: Toronto, Washington, NY Islanders, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, and Tampa Bay in that order. - Lowest PDO teams: Florida, Carolina, Arizona, San Jose, and Minnesota in that order. Most Post/Crossbar Shots: Vancouver, Chicago, Minnesota, Vegas, and Detroit in that order. Lowest Post/Crossbar Shots: Nashville (22) , Colorado (21), Ottawa (21), NY Rangers (20), and New Jersey (13!) in that order. Toughest Schedule thus far: New Jersey (0.11), Vancouver (0.07), Edmonton (0.07), Chicago (0.07), Ottawa (0.06), and LA (0.06) in that order. Easiest Schedule thus far: Tampa Bay (-0.14), Columbus (-0.11), Vegas (-0.11) ,San Jose (-0.09), Winnipeg (-0.06), Florida (-0.06) in that order. My take away from this is that there is no wonder why Kucherov keeps putting up 3 points a game, why Ottawa is currently dead last, and that Toronto's success is just a mirage.
