Analyzing hockey stats is a fascinating endeavor, but how do you actually analyze and determine the value of your team’s statistics?
There are two key factors in any analytics project: the numbers themselves and how the numbers relate to the real world.
The numbers, in this case, are the result of the NHL’s scoring, possession, and goal metrics, which are derived from game statistics and are updated weekly.
To understand the value the NHL provides to its fans, it’s helpful to first understand how the scoring, goal, and possession numbers are derived.
First, let’s look at how the goal scoring numbers are constructed.
Goal scoring is calculated by adding the goal scorers plus a “goal differential” or “point differential.”
This is simply how many points scored or allowed by the team.
For example, if the New York Rangers score a goal, they would add the “G” to their goal differential, while if the Minnesota Wild score a game-winning goal, the “M” would be added.
The team’s goal differential is then used to calculate a team’s score, which is then divided by the number of goals scored.
The goal differential of a team is the percentage of their goal scoring that is equal to or less than the opponent’s goal score.
This is done by multiplying the opponent team’s total goals by the goal differential.
This can be a complicated formula to explain, but it’s basically just the formula: x = 1 + (team’s total goal differential) / x.
The following table provides an explanation of how goals are scored: G = Goal Difference x + (Team’s Goal Differential) x = Goal Differentials Goal differential is the sum of goals a team scores, divided by its opponent’s total score.
For instance, if a team scored 1,500 goals, and its opponent scored 1.8, the goal difference is 1.88.
So, if Team A scores 1,900 goals, its goal differential would be 1.5.
Team B would score 1,600, so its goal difference would be 2.6.
Team A would score more goals than Team B, because Team B scored more goals, but its goal score differential would only be 1% higher than Team A’s.
So how do the teams’ goals compare?
Team A has 1,400 more goals.
Team C has 1.6 more goals per game.
Team D has 1 points more.
Team E has 1 goals less.
So the teams goals are closer than expected.
Team L has 1 more goals scored, but their goal score difference is 5.4 points less than Team D’s.
The reason why Team A and Team C have such different goal differential numbers is because Team D scored a goal more than Team L. This means that Team D is scoring more goals for its goal-scoring rate than Team C, and that Team L is scoring a goal less than expected because Team C scored a lot more goals and had a higher goal differential than Team E. So what are the other factors that influence the teams scoring?
Teams with high possession rates The goal difference in each team’s possession statistics reflects the difference in goals scored between the two teams.
When the possession numbers show a high differential between the teams, the team with the higher differential has a higher possession percentage.
Teams with a high shooting percentage The difference in goal difference between the possession and shooting statistics reflects both goals scored and the percentage goals scored by the other team.
If the shooting percentage is high in each of the team’s stats, the differential between their goals is higher, and therefore their score differential is higher.
Teams that score goals often have higher shooting percentages, so teams that score more are likely to have more goals in their possession statistics.
For each team, the percentage that their possession and scoring numbers show higher than the other teams is the difference between their goal difference and the other’s.
For teams that play in different leagues, there are different league-specific differential numbers, and these are used in the calculations.
The teams that have higher goal difference numbers tend to have higher possession statistics than the teams that are more often in the middle of the pack.
A team with a low shot percentage is generally considered to have a low goal differential and therefore a high shot percentage.
The average goal differential for each team in each league is also different for different teams.
So when comparing teams, it can be useful to look at the goal differences for teams that win more often or are in the playoff race.
The table below provides a comparison of the teams with the most and least goals scored per game in each conference, as well as a comparison between the number and percentage of goals that teams score.
In this table, the top three teams are the New Jersey Devils, Chicago Blackhawks, and Minnesota Wild.
The top two teams are Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings.
The bottom three teams in each division are the San Jose Sharks, Los
