Carey Price’s Goals Allowed: November 2010

In the second installment in this series, it’s time to visually inspect the goals allowed by Carey Price in the month of November 2010 (you can find Carey Price’s October 2010 goals allowed here).

November 2010 was a tremendous month for Carey, as the moustachioed one posted a 9-4-1 record with 3 shutouts and an aggregate save percentage of .947, this despite facing an average barrage of slightly more than 32 shots per game.

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.
