timeonice.com: Game by Game Shots and Faceoff Data

The scripts have been updated for this season. The data is for even strength (EV) play only, both 5v5 and 4v4, but only when both goalies are on the ice.

By way of example, Florida vs Edmonton from the other night:

Eeps! The Oilers were a bit fortunate to get the win in that one.

Scoring Chance App

A couple of years ago I wrote a small scoring chance app for Dennis King. This was done to make life easier for him. Last year several people used this app to record the scoring chances in hundreds of NHL hockey games. It has been updated to record this season's games, and can be found here.

The team needs to be selected from a drop down menu. This generates a form where the user inputs the five digit NHL game number as well as all of the individual scoring chances, and the time they occurred.

The output is the set of tables that Dennis uses in his posts. Like this one.

Occasionally this script fails due to inconsistent formatting of the NHL.com data sheets. If anyone experiences such difficulties with this app, please leave a comment in this thread. I'll check in here from time to time throughout the season and attempt to fix any problems if and when they occur.
