L.A. Kings Have To Start Scoring More Than 2 Goals Per Game, Stat…

Here is a startling stat.

Most teams have played about 15 games, some less or more. 15 is a fair average. That means, using 15, there have been about 225 games so far this season. You come to that conclusion by taking 30 NHL teams (yes, we do still count the Blue Jackets), dividing that number by 2 (since it takes two to tango on any given day or night), to get 15 and then multiply that by 15 games. 15 x 15 = 225. I realize it could be a few more or less but I am not going back to count every game. There are a total of 1,230 games played per season.

I counted how many of  those approximately 225 games resulted in a W when the winning team scored less than 3 goals. Ready? 33. I swear. Many nights, not even 3 goals per game was enough to win.

I know you don’t come here for the math, but stay with me. That means, this season, the winning team has scored 3 or more goals about 86% of the time.

Our goals per game average is currently 2.25. Out of 16 games, we have only scored 3 or more goals 4 times (25% of our games). We won every one of those 3+ goal games.

Any questions?

  1. Bottom line is, the system doesn’t work!

  2. Bottom line is, they’d do well to start scoring more or the playoffs will be anything but a foregone conclusion.

  3. Hey you guys, can someone tell me how you get your little pic in these blogs. I’ve never understood that. Thanks.
