Vancouver vs Detroit: A Graphical Post-Game Analysis

Pretty exciting being a part of a game where two teams fight for the coveted prize of “Whose goal-tending sucks worse?” and discovering—after 60 minutes of straight shoot-outs—that your team wins that contest. Not a great night for Vancouver, and even Red Wings nation had difficulties finding comfort in their win.

For my own post-game analysis, I decided on a carefully-plotted, statistically sensitive chart that would help us all see that game in proper context:

Tonight the Canucks face the Minnesota Wild and I’ll be co-hosting the Liveblog at the Canucks.com Fanzone starting at 5pm, along with a few other people.

After all, it’s baseball… I don’t even care who wins as long as the ballpark hotdogs have mustard.
