For anyone interested, this page will allow fans to access some advanced statistics for the Sabres.
Austin (@austin_broad) launched this project in January of 2019, it will involve him live tracking Sabres games and compiling data into one spreadsheet for fans to view.
Data will only be representative of 5v5 play during Buffalo Sabres games.
We are going to focus on a few stats for the purposes of this site:
–Controlled breakouts (breakouts that occur from a player successfully skating the puck or completing a pass out of the defensive zone)
–Controlled zone entries (entries that occur from a player successfully skating the puck or completing a pass across the opposing teams blueline)
–Shot attempts for and against (CF%)
–Scoring chances for and against (SCF%)
–Shot assists (passes that directly lead to a shot attempt)
*Tracking began on January 13th 2019
