  • The Canucks HAVE a 2nd line!
  • Alex Burrows, Chris Higgins and Mike Santorelli were a terrific 19-7 in SCD at ES.
  • Burrows is definitely overdue to score.
  • Burrows has had a knack for finishing and IS getting quality chances.
  • Perhaps his timing is off from missing games due to injury.
  • Christopher Tanev and Ryan Stanton were the best D-men 8-3 in SCD at ES.
  • The pair had low chances games as they were on the ice for a very low 3 chances against.
  • Conversely, Corey Perry and Dustin Penner had high chance games.
  • Perry was on the ice for 13 chances (7-6) SCD and Penner for 10. He was 6-4 in SCD at ES.
  • No other Anaheim Duck stood out in terms of SCD.
  • Statistical Three Stars:

    1. Fredrick Andersen {+2 goals rating}.
    2. Alex Burrows
    3. Mike Santorelli

    Honorable Mention: Dustin Penner (because I love pancakes!)

    OFFENSIVE ZONE ENTRY SUCCESS RATE (OZE%) (Even Strength)

    Most Advanced stat analysis centers around the idea that possession of the puck is huge key to long term success. {Accordingly, Offensive Zone Exit Success Rate (OZE%) attempts to identify the skill of gaining puck possession in the opponents defensive zone}. Offensive Zone Exit Success Rate (OZE%) is expressed as a percentage-{Successful Possessions Gained ('Carry-ins'+'Dump-wins') / Total Attempts at entry}.

    • Overall, the game was even in terms of OZE%.
    • However, OZE% clearly shows the Canucks dominated the first period.
    • It was good to see Vancouver decisively win at least one period in the neutral zone battle.
    • The team was unlucky not to score or receive any power plays in this period.
    • The Canucks also had ~16% more Ozone attempts as they carried the play all night.
    • Did fatigue contribute to Anaheim's improvement in the final two periods?
    • The Canucks had a very high total of 33 successful 'carry ins'. And, 15 in the 1st period.
    • The Canucks had 18 successful 'dump ins' (out of 46) for an ave. rate of (39%).
    • The Canucks aggressive forecheck was moderately effective .
    • The Canucks also won the puck battle game decisevly.
    • The Canucks 'should' have had more scoring chances.
    • Anaheim also had a very high total of 32 'carry ins - buy only 6 in the first period.
    • The Ducks had only 12 'dump in' wins out of 44 for only a rate of (27%).

    DEFENSIVE ZONE EXIT SUCCESS RATE (DZE%) (Even Strength)

    Most Advanced stat analysis centers around the idea that possession of the puck is huge key to long term success. {Accordingly, Defensive Zone Exit Success Rate (DZE%) attempts to identify the skill of exiting the defensive zone successful with possession}. Defensive Zone Exit Success Rate (DZE%) is expressed as a percentage-{Successful Exits with possession / Total Exits Attempts}.

    • The Canucks were also better at DZE% in this game.
    • However, the Ducks sat back in the final period to protect the lead.
    • DZE% shows us that the Ducks are vulnerable on the defence.
    • The Canucks should do well next game versus the Ducks, with their aggressive forecheck and when they are not as tired.

    EXPECTED SCORE

    {Expected Score is calculated by assigning an approximate percentage value to each shot attempt. It's goal is to capture a truer picture of the game}.


    VANCOUVER

    ANAHEIM


    TOTAL EXP. SCORE= ES (PP) {SH}

    TOTAL EXP. SCORE= ES (PP) {SH}


    3.4 = 2.7 (.7) {0}

    2.5 = 2.3 (.15) {0}

    • Expected Score suggests the most likely outcome was Vancouver 3 - Anaheim 2.

    GOALTENDER RATING - EXPECTED GOALS AGAINST

    {Expected Goals Against is calculated by estimating an expected score value to every save made}.

    • Eddie Lack had an Expected Goals Against {EGA} of ~ 2.
    • Lack's rating was +0.
    • Fredrick Andersen had an {EGA} of ~ 3.0
    • Andersen's rating was + 2.
    • The Ducks won the goaltending battle by nearly 2 goals!

    TURNOVERS (EvenStrength)

    • It was a very sloppy game.
    • Vancouver had another high total of 28 turnovers.
    • I remain concerned about the Canucks high turnover totals.
    • I'm hoping fatigue is a main factor.
    • The Ducks had a even higher total of 33 turnovers.
    • My guess is that the Ducks are playing above their heads, and they are good as their record.

    THE DECIDING FACTORS

    • The Ducks goaltending and luck were the key factors in the game.
    • The Canucks won every stat battle in the game!
    • Once again, the Canucks did not receive the penalty calls they deserved.
    • Burrows, Kelser and Henrik all drew clear penalties and, Garrison's first penalty was not a high stick.
    • The better team ought to draw more penalties- it isn't happening enough in Canuck games.

    Be sure to Vote.

    My prediction right now is the Canucks finish fifth - just out of the playoffs. I really hope my math is wrong?! However, if Mike Gillis gets a legitimate center and the team gets more power plays they could finish as high as third.
