League Realignment

The league realignment and the introduction of wildcard playoff berths in the 2013-14 season complicated the communication of standings and playoff seeding information. The display of standings information in ProPuck Wizard has not changed from previous seasons – conference standings are based on the total number of points with the standard NHL tie-breaking rules. The two division leaders take the top two positions in the conference standings and standings position within the conference is shown using superscripts.

Playoff pairing information has changed and is now color-coded as follows:

The new playoff format can result in surprising playoff pairings.

Conference Standings

This displays the team standings for each conference using the standard NHL sort order (points and division leaders) and tie-breaking rules.

Separate Standings statistics are computed for the regular season and the playoffs. Standings are sorted by wins for each conference during the playoffs.

Name

Description

Team

Name of team.

Position in conference points standings shown in superscript. See playoff pairing info for color coding description.

G

Total games played (sum of W, L, and O)

W

Total number of wins, including regulation, overtime and shoot-out wins

RO

Total number of regulation and overtime losses.

L

Total number of regulation losses

O

Total number of overtime and shoot-out losses

P

Total points (2 per win, 1 per overtime or shoot-out loss).

Shown in green when the team is in a playoff position and in red when the team is out of a playoff position.

%

Shown in green when higher than the conference average, red when lower, blue when equal.

M

Momentum (see below).

Shown in green when higher than than the Win Percentage, red when lower, blue when equal.

Also shown are the division, conference and league records (points and Win Percentage). Divisions and conferences are sorted by points (highest to lowest).

Points and Win Percentages for a division are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the division is higher than the conference average and red when below. Points and Win Percentages for a conference are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the conference is higher than the league average and red when below.

Eastern Conference divisions (Atlantic and Metropolitan) are shown in blue while Western Conference divisions (Pacific and Central) are shown in purple.

Division Standings

This displays the team standings for each division using the standard NHL sort order (points and division leaders) and tie-breaking rules. Also shown are the wildcard positions for each conference. Since regulation + overtime wins is a key standings tiebreaker, it is also shown.

This is available for the regular season only.

See legend.

Back to top

Win Percentage Standings

This displays the standings for each conference sorted by Win Percentage and division structure for each team in the conference. The teams in each division with the highest Win Percentage are seeded 1-2 as in the NHL standings. This representation of the standings presents a truer view of relative team performance as it completely factors in the number of games played by each team, which the normal standings do not due to huge disparities in the number of games played by each team during the course of the season.

This is available for the regular season only.

Win Percentage Division Standings

This displays the standings for each division sorted by Win Percentage in the conference. Also shown are the wildcard positions for each conference.

This is available for the regular season only.

3-Point Standings

This displays the standings for each conference where a total of 3 points per game is awarded. In this system, regulation wins are awarded 3 points, overtime and shootout wins 2 points, overtime and shootout losses 1 point, and regulation losses 0 points. The total points, win percentage and momentum values are recalculated using this allocation. Results are sorted by 3-point Win Percentage and division structure for each team in the conference. The teams in each division with the highest 3-point Win Percentage are seeded 1-2.

This is available for the regular season only.

3-Point Division Standings

This displays the standings for each division sorted by 3-point Win Percentage in the conference. Also shown are the wildcard positions for each conference.

This is available for the regular season only.

Win Percentage

This displays the standings for each conference sorted by Win Percentage value for each team in the conference. Use this to determine which teams have the best records in the conference.

Separate Win Percentage statistics are computed for the regular season and the playoffs.

See legend.

This is a more accurate measure for comparison of teams than points as it factors in the number of games played, which the standard NHL points-based standings do not (except when points are equal). For example, consider team A with a record of 10-3-4 and team B with a record of 11-3-1. Team A has 24 points vs. 23 for Team B but Team B’s Win Percentage is better at 0.767 vs. Team A at 0.706.

Win Percentage is calculated based on the total number of points divided by the total points available (i.e., 2x the number of games played) and is a decimal value ranging from 0 to 1.000.

Also shown are the division, conference and league records (points and Win Percentage). Divisions and conferences are sorted by Win Percentage (highest to lowest).

Points and Win Percentages for a division are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the division is higher than the conference average and red when below. Points and Win Percentages for a conference are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the conference is higher than the league average and red when below.

Eastern Conference divisions (Atlantic and Metropolitan) are shown in blue while Western Conference divisions (Pacific and Central) are shown in purple.

Momentum

This displays the standings for each conference sorted by Momentum value for each team in the conference. Use this to determine which teams are hot and which teams are not.

Separate Momentum statistics are computed for the regular season and the playoffs. Momentum values are reset at the start of the playoffs.

See legend.

Momentum is calculated using a proprietary formula based on a team’s performance over the last 10 games. More recent games are weighted highest, while the oldest games in the 10-game period are weighted lowest. Momentum can shift significantly in value over a short stretch of games, especially with consecutive wins or losses.

Momentum is a decimal value ranging from 0 to 1.000. When the team's Momentum value is higher than its Win Percentage, the team is playing better than normal so the value is shown in green. When the Momentum value is lower than the Win Percentage, the team is playing worse than normal so the value is shown in red. When equal, it is shown in blue. Look for teams with both Win Percentage and Momentum shown in green to find the hottest teams in the league.

Also shown are the division, conference and league records (points and Win Percentage). Divisions and conferences are sorted by Win Percentage (highest to lowest).

Points and Win Percentages for a division are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the division is higher than the conference average and red when below. Points and Win Percentages for a conference are shown in green when the Win Percentage for the conference is higher than the league average and red when below.

Eastern Conference divisions (Atlantic and Metropolitan) are shown in blue while Western Conference divisions (Pacific and Central) are shown in purple.

Points Predictions

This estimates the end-of-season points for each team in each conference based on several different measures. Also shown are which teams are predicted to make the playoffs and which are not. Tie-breakers are not considered in the calculations except for the conference point standings.

This is available during the regular season only.

Due to the division realignment introduced in the 2013-14 season, there are different ways that teams can make the playoffs so there can be multiple sets of blue (tied) numbers shown. For example, this can happen when one set of teams is tied for third place in a division while another set of teams is tied for the last wildcard position.

Head-To-Head

The NHL schedule is unbalanced and teams do not play the same number of games against each other team. Thus, if a team is in a weak division, the points and Win Percentage metrics can be inflated due to the lower calibre of competition in that division. Similarly, a team may look worse than it really is if it plays in a stronger division.

The Head-To-Head metric is used to measure a team’s performance against other teams in the league. Differences in schedule and opponents are normalized out resulting in a uniform metric that can be used to fairly compare teams in different divisions or conferences. It is the best metric to show how good a team really is when compared to another.

This is available for the regular season only.

Close is defined as when the teams are within one goal (1st and 2nd periods) or tied (3rd period). SAT (commonly referred to as Corsi) and USAT (commonly referred to as Fenwick) are believed to be approximate measures of puck possession. The difference between SAT and USAT is the number of shot attempts blocked by the opposing team.

The percentages for each division and conference are also shown. The percentage for a division is shown in green when it is higher than the conference average, red when below and blue when equal. The percentage for a conference is shown in green when it is higher than the league average, red when below and blue when equal.

Separate Shooting statistics are computed for the regular season and the playoffs.

This is an extremely powerful table that clearly illustrates a team’s strengths and weaknesses on offense or defense.

Good defensive teams will have higher values in the 1-3 goal range, and lower values in the 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8+ ranges, with a single peak. Strong goaltending will show up in the A0 entry. Weaker defensive teams may have multiple peaks in the A row.

Strong offensive teams will have low values in F0 entry, and have higher values in the 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8+ ranges. Multiple peaks in the F row could indicate an inconsistent attack, or possibly a team that takes advantage of weaker opponents by scoring frequently against them. Weaker teams may have high values in A0, indicating they are often shut out.

The D row is a key indicator of a team’s performance. There should be a green peak at D1-D2, and then a quick tail-off. Ideally, all of the D entries will be green. Many believe that the single-goal won/loss difference (D1) is a key indicator of a team’s performance. Red values are bad.

This is an extremely powerful tool to understand, at a glance, how a team has been performing against the other teams in its conference. In particular, the Momentum trend line will show how a team has been heating up, cooling down, or treading water.

If a team's Standings line is above its Win % line, the team is playing worse than its record. Similarly, a team with its Win % line above the Standings line means the team is playing better than it appears. When the Momentum line is above or below the Win % or Standings lines, the team will likely make a move up or down soon.

Touching a legend will highlight the trend line for that stat. Touching a data point will show the point's values.
