Points-Blown Standings (2011-12 Final)

  • Final Points-Blown standings for the 2011-12 NHL season.
  • I removed several columns that are pointless now that the season is over. Their definitions in the key below have been grayed-out to signify their absence. 
  • This allowed me to add a couple of columns I didn’t have room for before.
  • OSR = “old school record”, which treats games that end with the score tied as if those were complete games, and calls them “ties.” 
  • OSP = “old school points.” One point to both teams that are tied at the end of regulation. No OT/SO wins, no loser points.
  • SOR = shoot-out record.
  • SOP = shoot-out points earned.
  • SO% = winning % in the shoot-out.

    I’d really like to see the ‘yotes flub one of their cupcakes.I think they have a chance to sneak in and take the division if the kings don’t win one vs the sharks.

    • DougS

      I agree that Phoenix will probably have to lose one of their remaining 3 for the Kings to get the Division title, but 3-0 in their last games of the season will be a tall order, no matter what the quality of opposition.

      I think it looks worst for Dallas. IIRC, Rudy posted something on BoC showing that, as of the last 5 games for everyone, they had the worst combined season record against their remaining opponents.

    Quisp, you changed the date but forgot to change the day. It’s Monday April 2 :)

  • angelofdeath

    Coyotes could lose tomorrow… They’re 0-3 (LOL) against the Jackets this year… Not to mention, CBJ has been playing much better recently… 
    We all hope STL will still be chasing the President’s Trophy when they face PHX (and DAL)…

    One question, one comment.
    Question is: What does “Points Blown” refer to specifically [apologies if this question seems obtuse]?
    Comment: The “Sort by Column” functionality only seems to work if you click on the invisible triangle to the right of the column not the column header text. in case you care.

    • http://www.mcsorleys-stick.com/ Quisp

      Doesn’t seem obtuse. Points-blown refers to the number of points a team could have earned but didn’t. A loss is two PB, an OT/SOL is one PB, a win is zero PB. Lower PB # is better. Like Golf. There’s a more detailed explanation via the link above.

      Re the sort function: yes, it does require you to “click around” a little. It is what it is. (It’s the best solution I am aware of.)
