GDT: 4/20, Game 5, Stars vs Predators, 2pm

Postby BigAl » Fri Apr 19, 2019 11:57 am

Round 1 game 5, an event which not alter the landscape of humanity in any appreciable way.
An event which will some day be completely forgotten as all its viewers and participants eventually succumb to mortality.

Looking forward to it.

As much as I love run and gun hockey, winning is more fun (usually).

Yeah. 13-14 was a lot of fun. But, I agree. Would rather win.

I always thought the slot was the area between the circles.

That’s how I think of it — a narrow rectangle.

And I'd say that narrow rectangle not extended is still the best spot to shoot from as all parts of the net are equally in danger. There's no place for the goalie to go to cut down on the odds.

The one area that could be really misleading on the graph is the crease. Chances are they are really close to the goalie and too close to get a good shot off. On the other hand, the goalie could be on the other side of the net and it could be a bang-bang play, so you don't know just by looking at the graph whether it's an absolutely amazing chance or no big deal.

It's probably more important to prevent passes from going through that area then to prevent shots from that area.

Thanks for the lecture.... but what does it have to do with the slot's location?

If they can get out of period 1 with a scoreless tie, they will be in good shape.

I prefer to think of the slot as a parallelogram.

The rookie got beat on that one.

Grimaldi is going to match his season goal scoring total in this series.

Generating lots of chances in the slot. Much better than the first two games in Nashville.

Roope has come so far. I though he had nothing and was another bust at the start of the season

I’m with Bob. The Stars look like the better team. Lots of scoring chances for us.

Yep, I have to take a loss on that one too. He looked pretty spare but has really turned up his game. In fact, he's so good now he got Dickinson to score.

I think his biggest growth is with skating with the puck on his stick. He started the season skating around really fast but seldom with the puck. Now that he’s embraced being something more of a puck hog, he’s better for it.

This seems weird to say, but man, the Stars look like they are playing playoff hockey. Sticks in lanes, blocked shots, quick to the puck. They look good.
