Crunching Numbers: Sabres Outshot by Devils, Win 4-1

New, comments

The Sabres scored two goals in the first six minutes of the game on their way to a 4-1 victory in New Jersey against the Devils.  After the two quick goals it was the Devils that had more chances but Ryan MIller was once again outstanding. 

There were some really interesting statistics when I broke down the numbers.  Obviously the Sabres scored three even strength goals and they allowed the Devils to score none.  Was tat because of good defense or good goaltending?  It was probably a combination of both but the numbers show it was good goaltending.

The Sabres had some key players on the ice for plenty of Devils shots but I have to believe that many of them were not quality shots.

S Miss = Shots missed the net Tot SA = Total Shots Ag. Including blocked/missed
SOGF = Team Shots while on ice Corsi = Difference in Total Shots

 

The Corsi number is a statistic that what created by Sabres goalie coach JIm Corsi. It is the difference in total shots for and the total shots against. It factors in all shots that were on net, attempts that were blocked and shots that missed the net. The idea is that it is a better reflection on a players two-way play because it shows puck possesion as opposed to only shots on goal.
