Canucks' Sloppy Second Periods: A Closer Look

So, how bad have the Canucks been in the 2nd periods this season, since everyone keeps talking about it?

Let's break it down a little, and remember that these stats are only from the 2nd periods of Canucks games this season.

In their past 5 games:

-4 goals scored, 5 goals against

-42 shots on goal, 65 shots against

-5 power plays for, 13 power plays against

Record: 3 wins 2 losses

In the 5 games prior to that:

-4 goals scored, 0 goals against

-43 shots on goal, 48 shots against

-9 power plays for, 8 power plays against

Record: 3-2

In the 5 games prior to that:

-4 goals scored, 4 goals against

-43 shots on goal, 60 shots against

-3 power plays for, 6 powerplays against

Record: 3-2

In the 5 games prior to that:

-1 goal scored, 4 goals scored against

-38 shots on goal, 56 shots against

-7 power plays for, 7 PP's against

Record: 3-2

In the 5 games prior to that:

-3 goals scored, 5 goals against

-62 shots on goal, 32 shots against

-8 power plays for, 4 against

Record: 3-2

And finally, the 4 games prior to that:

-5 goals scored, 4 goals allowed

-47 shots for, 39 shots against

-7 power play chances, 7 power plays against

Record: 1-3

GRAND TOTAL:

-29 games played

-21 goals scored, 22 goals scored against

-275 shots on goal, 300 shots against

-39 power play chances, 45 power plays against

-The Canucks were outshot in 15 of the 29 games played.

So what am I saying?

1. Statistically, the numbers don't show an atrocious failure in 2nd periods by the Canucks. But stats never tell the whole story. There is style of play and momentum plus stats that I left out that also come into play. I'd post them all, but I don't have that much time to spare. I just wanted to paint you a bit of a picture.

2. I have too much free fucking time on my hands and suffer from insomnia.
