Sabres Goal Trends - First Half

Grant Halverson

With the Buffalo Sabres having played half their quota of games for the season, this is a good time to take a look at what times of the game the Sabres have been scoring and conceding goals.

Data don't lie. And the data says that the Sabres are a miserable 2nd period team. The data also says that the Sabres seem to find their offense in the third period. Unfortunately, they ship almost as many goals too. They also rarely score first in the first five minutes of games and give up goals in bunches on the road. Tell us what else you can see here.

More data, broken down for home and away games as well as separating goals scored versus goals given up, can be found here. (The numbers in the parentheses next to the period are goals for and goals against; the four columns for each period represent 0 to 5', 5'-10', 10'-15' and 15'-20')

X = Goal For
O = Goal Against
