The grades from the West Coast road trip are in, and it made for slight better reading than before. The three stars of the week from Games 4-7 were Jason Pominville (4.06), Evander Kane (4.04) and Jack Eichel (3.78).
The were some low grades too, with the bottom three: Seth Griffith (1.74), Jacob Josefson (1.71) and Matt Moulson (1.62).
The Buffalo Sabres finally picked up a couple of wins, but had a couple of ugly losses over the last five games as well.
We’ll stick with Corsi For % as the advanced stat metric beyond just the goals, assists and +/-. For Phil Housley we also have the team’s overall Corsi For % as a measurable stat.
