I figured I would take a break from hacking on the code and post what might be some fun or, depending how you look at, depressing shared ice time stats.
Datsyuk had 2:32:35 TOI. The Wings scored 12 goals and San Jose scored 4.
Zetterberg had 2:33:56 TOI. The Wings scored 13 goals and San Jose scored 3.
Ok. So Dats and Z had almost identical TOI during which time they kicked San Jose's ass. Let's dig deeper.
They spent 1:17:57 shared TOI. The Wings scored 10 goals and San Jose 0.
So I am not a hockey expert but I think we did well when Z and Pav played together.
Zetterberg had 1:15:19 TOI without Datsyuk. The Wings scored 3 goals and San Jose 3.
Pavel had 1:14:38 TOI without Zetterberg. The Wings scored 2 goals and San Jose 4.
During the series as a whole the Wings scored 18 goals and San Jose also scored 18.
This means that:
- Approximately 56% of all the Wings goals came with Pav AND Z on the ice together.
- Pav and Z were on the ice together for (roughly) 17% of the series ice time.
- Either Z and/or Pav was on the ice for approximately 52% of the series.
- 100% of San Jose's goals came when Pav And Z were NOT on the ice together.
- 61% of San Jose's goals came when NEITHER Pav or Z was on the ice.
Given that Z and Pav had almost identical total TOI for the series they spent almost exactly 50% of their individual TOI together.
