Deeper Into the Numbers

Here are the promised head-to-head stats for the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins and the Providence Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
First the Penguins “big” stat board. Again, please click to enlarge for texture…
Andrew Ebbett’s presence is missed, but not that badly, where Spencer Machacek has filled in as the sixth veteran and hasn’t been on the ice for a goal against along with Chuck Kobasew, rookie Conor Sheary and Anton Zlobin. Zlobin’s impact was immediate because he missed Game 1 and was on the ice when four goals were scored for the Penguins in Game 2.
Brian Dumoulin’s name at the top of this board is just a microcosm of his overall impact in these playoffs. And how about Zlobin?
Here is Providence’s “big” stat board…
Joe Morrow is having a hell of a playoffs against his old team two games in, isn’t he?
Khokhlachev had a big Game 1 and the Penguins kept him in check in Game 2 and won handily. If that continues, they advance easily.
Easier said than done.
I’ll continue to update these and will probably run another blog of this on the weekend.
