Canucks in this mirror are closer than they appear - Neilson Numbers for Game Four


Sorry for the lateness of this entry, 'nucks fans, but here's something for those who would prefer to chew on some numbers than gnaw on their fingernails in the waning minutes to Game Five. The Neilson Numbers for Game Four are currently up at the Cult of Hockey, courtesy of my co-writer and blog founder David Staples.

The somewhat good news from a Canucks perspective is that the scoring chance battle has been much closer than on the scoreboard. Boston did have the advantage in Game Four, but just by a 17-13 margin. Both games were closer than the scoreboard indicated.  (But you knew that already!)

David has also summarized scoring chance and error totals from Games 1-4 in this post, which I believe will also be featured in the print edition of the Edmonton Journal tomorrow, where David has a weekly advanced stats piece.

I'll be scoring Game Five myself this evening and will try to have it posted fairly early tomorrow for those following along.

Anybody's guess what I'll be writing about. This series hangs on a kinfe edge, regardless of the cumulative score. Tense times, I'm sure.
