A Second Look: Florida Panthers vs. Edmonton Oilers

New, comments

What do the advanced stats say about Florida's third straight victory?

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

It's pretty nice to win three in a row, in Canada, isn't it, eh?  Should give all of those crying for relocation a chance to rethink their stance, or at least just quiet down for a little bit.

Corsi Timeline

Overall, the Florida Panthers played a good game, and fell victim to score effects in the third.  The Edmonton Oilers have just gotten some poor goaltending this year, and even though they're a 50% Corsi team, they're not going to win many hockey games if they keep getting save percentages around .900%.

Shot Plots

Edmonton was kept to the outside for most of their shots, while Florida had a lot of shots right down the middle of the ice.  Good game for the Cats in this regard.

Player Performance

Florida

Top performers were Jonathan Huberdeau and Brian Campbell.  Thanks to the score effects, most of the team did well, though the line of Tomas Fleischmann, Dave Bolland and Sean Bergenheim got caved in, as did the Dmitry Kulikov - Willie Mitchell pairing.

Edmonton

Edmonton's first line of Jordan EberleRyan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall was dominant, and the Justin Schultz - Oscar Klefbom pairing had a good showing.  Most of the team was below positive, but the line of Boyd GordonMatt Hendricks and Rob Klinkhammer had an atrocious game.
