Friday Stat Sheet

A few stats for your perusal this Friday evening. And for comparison's sake I'll throw in how they ended up last season, and how they finished in 01-02. * Power Play: the Wings have skyrocketed to 22nd (15.4), thanks to their current hot streak with the man-up. They've now scored a PP goal in 7 straight games. 05-06: 1st, 22.1% 01-02: 2nd, 20.3% * Penalty Kill: Still lingering in the middle of the pack at 17th (82.4). 05-06: 3rd, 85.5% 01-02, 7th, 86.0% Hard to imagine either unit falling below their present rank, and both will most likely end up top 10 by season's end.

*The Wings are 9th in the league in points (40), but 5th in winning percentage at .667.  Naturally, that doesn’t take into account OT or shootout losses.  If that were the case, their percentage would be right at .600.

05-06: 1st in points with 122, 1st in winning percentage at .756
01-02: 1st in points with 116, 1st in winning percentage at .707

* Detroit now sits second in goals against/game (2.17) but maintain a strong lead in shots against (22.4).
05-06 GAA: 3rd, 2.51.  Shots against: 3rd, 26.6
01-02 GAA: 3rd, 2.28.  Shots against: 13th, 26.3
 
* The Wings also lead, by a wide margin, in winning percentage after scoring first (.867).
05-06 WP after scoring first: 6th, .745
01-02 WP after scoring first: 2nd, .739

* And the Wings lead the league in faceoff percentage 54%.
05-06 Faceoff percentage: 3rd, 52.8
01-02 Faceoff percentage: 9th, 51.4

Oh, and just for fun…here are Hasek’s stats for this year, 05-06 and 01-02.
06-07 GAA: 1.90, SV%: .910, Shutouts: 4
05-06 GAA: 2.09, SV%: .925, Shutouts: 5
01-02 GAA: 2.17, SV%: .915, Shutouts: 5

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
