Consider Monday nights madness (enjoyable though it was). But I checked with my friend Jesse Marshall, a man so steeped in analytics that he is often in danger of drowning, and this is what he said: Lets start with scoring chances against per 60 minutes. Fleury: 19.56 Murray: 19.41 No difference there at all. But we can actually take a closer look and filter this so were only looking at high-danger scoring chances against. These are shots taken from the home plate area directly in/around the crease: High-Danger Chances against per 60: Fleury: 9.7 Murray: 9.21 The differences here are negligible, Joe. The Penguins havent been real good defensively in front of either man. They รองเท้าผ้าใบ แฟชั่น have scored way more goals in front of Murray, which could be random but could also be attributed, as Marshall suggests, to playing with a lead as opposed to battling from behind. Scoring becomes more difficult when youre behind because of the way the other team plays. Joe Starkey, รองเท้าวิ่งผู้ชาย adidas @JoeStarkey1: So would you keep Fleury? Starkey: Yes, Joe, I would. And I didnt always feel this way. I just like the idea of having that insurance policy in case Murray is injured, and I believe having two good goalies gives the Penguins a competitive advantage in a compressed season.
