Duh, Sens were 4-0-0 against Bruins during regular season. My issue is not with Bruins. Rather it is the reliance on fancy stat numbers. For some reason, Sens do better against strong possession teams. I think it is part of the Boucher approach.

In game 1, for example, Sens were very strong dominating the Bruins in all zones and they lost. In yesterday's game they reverted to to their traditional style.

More specifically, on appearance (I have not seen the chart) but it would appear to me that Bergeron, Marchand and Pasternak/Backes dominated possession against Phaneuf and Ceci. The Bergeron line is probably the best possession line in hockey. Yet at the end of the night Phaneuf ended up +3.

Dion was CF-16 CA-22 (42%) ..thats not very good
but 3 goals for and 0 against on the night. I see Stone is also, I would suspect thats a big reason why if he was on the ice with Stone a lot.

ceci was 38%

series now shifts to Boston, matchups should favour the Bruins.

some interesting points from Yost.

Series to date: Ottawa's at 61% EV shot share with Erik Karlsson on the ice, 41% with him off of the ice.


Travis Yost‏Verified account @travisyost
Bergeron, who is the king of this, is at 60%. (Boston 47% with him off.)

Travis Yost‏Verified account @travisyost
Bergeron career against Karlsson he's about 53%. Insanely good. But for some context, vs. guys Bergeron's played against regularly, he's ..


Travis Yost‏Verified account @travisyost
Replying to @travisyost
..around 60%. This is part Boston was/is very good at EV and has been for years, part Bergeron is just freaking nasty.


bergerson vs Karlsson might decide the series

Personally, I'd go with the better two way player, Bergeron.

Meh. A lot of potential. Got to realise it

To an extent, they already have. Their D was pretty good this year.

Similar to the Leafs, they improve throughout the year. They were better in the second half. A little behind the Leafs, but they still improved. One of the best teams down the stretch.

Maybe Dion should have stopped and ragged the puck, in OT, to get his fancy boy stats number up where you think they should be .................. but he just one timed the puck, what a dummy, he must have known his fancy boy stats needed padding ...........right?

I'm actually in the lead of my playoff pool by a decent margin, with team corsi being one of the stats taken into consideration.

Let me know when the NHL changes it's method of ranking teams in the standing, and the playoff seeding, based on super interpretive fancy boy advanced stats............. until then the Results on the scoreboard is what matters.


BTW, it's not "my" P% ...... it's the NHL's.

The loser points leader leafs finished with fewer Wins, than the two teams behind them in the Conference............ so failure to win in overtime and shootouts is what propelled the crapple laffs into the playoffs.

I believe one of the first comments that they'd be dead last, with less points than last year.

Now bear with me here, because this is going to get complicated.

Maybe it's not one or the other?

Maybe you can use one to help provide insight to the other?

Coming down the stretch I predicted that the Leafs would be a dangerous team to play in the playoffs. I also predicted that they would win games against the Caps and if they split 2-2 after 4 games, it will be the Caps that begin to panic.

Great. that only makes the crap that's been spewed all year (and before) even more stupid.

I think it's starting to pain many senaturds fans, to realize they're team is going nowhere, and are a distant second thought, when it comes to NHL teams in Ontario. Knowing that they're the inferior organization, and team, will prove difficult, when watching their team from across the province competing for cups for the next decade.
