    I'd love to hear your response.

    That's fair, but even if we did include those games and extrapolate them out to full 50+ minute games, it wouldn't tip the scales that much in the other direction.

    But we have to keep each game individual because every game is a unique event. There's a ton of varying factors that affect goalie performance game by game.

    Not all teams are equal, and not all goalies are equal. It has to be team to itself, and goalie to himself comparisons. Game to game data is really the only way to do it because aggregate data does not take into account all the variables.

    Here's the splits for when TEAMS allow 30 or more shots versus allowing 29 or fewer shots in the past 5 years.

    0-29 SHOTS: .895 SV%
    30+ SHOTS: .917 SV%

    Here are the gamelogs from 2013 through 2018.


    I would like to just clarify something about this table.
