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 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.

    It appears we just have to lift the puck to beat him. Glove hand side works, but no need to be picky.

    What’s with the panic – The boys will score and Carey will stop the pucks – They ALL Have to work TOGETHER – It’s not a one man show. TEAMWORK Works!!!!!!! If they work as a team they will succeed – if not they will not go anywhere. I know they will get together as a TEAM. They are an awesome team – just work together – pass the pack – “SHOOT” and they will go in. Protect your goalie and they WON’T GO IN! GO HABS GO!!!!!

    This is ok, but how about you bring other things into the equation? such as: screened shots, deflections, cross crease passes, back door plays etc…

    stop over analyzing everything
