Carey Price’s Goals Allowed: October 2010

For your viewing, dissecting, and obsessing pleasure, I’ve put together a visual compilation of all the goals conceded by Carey Price in the first month of the 2010-2011 NHL season. Accompanying each visual is the meta-data about the goal, pulled directly from the NHL.com full play-by-play logs.

When analyzing the performance of a goalie, quantitative metrics like save percentage, goals against average, and won-loss record only go so far towards truly encapsulating the overall quality of that netminder. Qualitative assessments of each goal must be undertaken to paint a true picture of his performance.

I am far from being a goaltending specialist, but it is my hope that a technician can take this presentation and tell us a far more vivid and meaningful story about Carey’s strengths and weaknesses than the standard statistics allow for.
