This edition of the NHL statistics corner covers the busy weekend of hockey.A team like this Calgary Flame, Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals are very busy.The performance of these three teams is very good, there is a lot to talk about, and let’s take a look at the Edmonton Oilers and Florida Panthers Continue their home success and dominance. All of this, and more from the NHL, will be available at any time.
Oilers’ strong play, home record, consecutive points and first place
Conor McDavidThe 17 winning streak at the start of a season is the eighth longest winning streak in NHL history. In addition, the Oilers started 8-1 at home for the first time since the 1985-86 season. Their 20 powerful goals (20) this season are the second most in the first 16 games in team history. This team has many similarities with the glorious years of the 80s, when their offense could not be stopped and everyone benefited. So far, Ken Holland and Dave Tippet have done a great job, creating a competitive team that is worth seeing every night (“How an unpopular hockey player helped build this A strong Edmonton Oilers team”, Edmonton Magazine, November 21, 2021).
The Oilers recently scored their first goal in eight games, but in the first seven games, they still maintained a 4-3-0 record. This data only reflects the resilience of the team this season and how they will never withdraw from the game with the talent they have. Speaking of the Oilers’ first time, Philip Broberg recorded his first career score and an assist in his first game in the NHL.
Flames’ record closure
Andrew Mangiapane He is now the fastest player in the history of the Flames to score 13 goals in a single season. He is also the first player in team history to score 15 points in the team’s first 19 games since Jerome Iginla in the 2001-02 season. The last two games, like the whole season, were friendly to Manjapane in the goal department. However, this is not luck, because he has always been a force, especially in the away game, and the last two games only increased this advantage because he added three goals to the total number of goals. Mangiapane continues to challenge Iginla’s team to score goals, which is a remarkable feat.
Brad Richardson scored his first goal in history at the UBS Arena, the New York Islanders’ new stadium. A Fire player (formerly known as the Atlanta Fire) scored the first goal in the islanders’ old stadium. Morris Stefaniw did this at the Nassau Coliseum on October 7, 1972. Fortunately, both Fire teams happened to be the first opponents of the Islanders in the new arena. Elias Lindholm also played the 600th game of his career, playing the 226th for the Flames.
The Fire became the first team since 1929 to record 7 lockouts in the first 19 games of the season. The last time this happened was when offensive forwards were not allowed to pass the ball. If you only count their lockouts, the Flames will rank 23rd in the league in wins. According to Sportsnet statisticsThe system in which Darryl Sutter engages his team produces absurd numbers on defense. Even in those years with the lowest goals, we didn’t see a team as dominant defensively as this Fire team.
Ovickin added another team to his scoring list
The Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin scored his 375th away goal, first against San Jose Sharks goalkeeper Alden Hill, ranking in the number of goals scored by the NHL (151) ninth. He is only behind Jaromir Jagr (178), Patrick Marleau (177), Mark Messier (164), Ron Francis (157), Wayne Gretzky (155), Dave Andreychuk (154), Mike Gartner (152) and Teemu Selanne (152) ) ). With many new goalkeepers entering the NHL these days, he has the ability to climb more on this list.
Ovechkin scored a goal in the first game against the Seattle Sea Monsters, which was the 17th team he played against for the first time. This brings his total number of goals in his career to 745, which is still rising rapidly.
The Panthers dominate the ice at home
The Panthers are the fourth team in NHL history to score 10 consecutive victories at home. The Chicago Blackhawks had a home record of 11-0-0 in the 1963-64 season, while the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens both started 10-0-0 at home in the 1925-26 and 2016-17 seasons. The Panthers’ consecutive hits are still intact, but without Alexander Barkov, this will be a difficult task.
The Panthers have scored at least 4 goals in each of the first 10 home games, one game away from tying the NHL record of 11 consecutive home starts. The Philadelphia Flyers set this record in the 1992-93 season. .Not only did their goalkeepers really strengthen this year, but they also Offended by everyone, Even players that you don’t think will be produced. Their dominance is almost historic, so please pay close attention to their next home game.
Maple leaves start fresh with the help of Wall
The Maple Leafs played 74 games against the New York Islanders at Nassau Stadium and recorded zero lockouts. In the first game of the UBS Arena, the islanders’ new building, they won a game. 74 consecutive games in his own building without being turned away by a team is impressive, but this may be a new start for the Maple Leafs organization.
Joseph Wall is the first goalkeeper in Maple Leafs history to be eliminated in the first two away games of his career. In the absence of Petr Mrazek, when starter Jack Campbell needed a night’s rest, Wall has strengthened well and provided Toronto with a stable game.
