’19 Canyon of Heroes Week 4

Losing has become a reoccurring theme with Canyon of Heroes. Since we opened the season with an 8-4 win, we have gone on to lose three straight matchups and dropped down to the eighth place. 


MATCHUP AND SCORES

Canyon of Heroes is by far one of the worse teams in any and all offensive categories. Somehow we managed to keep a few of them close this past week. Considering we lost by only three points, it shows that we improved. 

We won the power-play points category, despite having the second worse unit in the league. The nine points were the second-highest total we’ve potted this season.

Our team currently ranks near the bottom of the league in shots on goal. It was evident we need to improve that statistic because we lost that category by 21 points. 

The goaltender categories were an intense battle down to the wire. Gregory’s Team posted better GAA and Save Percentage, which helped them take home the prize.

In week three, we were in a hole 9-0 to start the matchup. This time around, we jumped out to a 4-0 lead. That followed by two days of ties before they took over the matchup for the rest of the week. Thursday was their highest lead (four points), while Friday was the closest we got to typing again. 


STANDINGS & TEAM STATS

Our loss in week four dropped us from seventh to eighth. Besides that, there was another major shift in the standings, a new first overall. Callahan Auto Parts finally jumped Vin Weasel, who has been in the first place since opening night. It will be interesting to see those two heavyweights duke it out for a top spot as the season progresses.

The team statistics are a fun puzzle to look at. Out of the eight categories, we only have a chance in two of them. We rank in the top half of the league in game-winning goals and hits. The six other categories are a lost cause for the time being. A major roster shuffle can only alter those numbers. But, in some departments, it may already be too late. 

The only highlight for us belongs to the goalies. Those five guys currently have the most wins and shutouts in the league. We also rank in the top five of both goals against and save percentage. 


BENCH PLAYERS

For the second straight week, our bench management couldn’t have saved the matchup. If you factor in Martin Jones’ (San Jose) only start against Boston, our numbers would have been even worse.

Best Player – Alex Ovechkin – Washington Capitals – 33 points

Worse Player: Jordan Staal – Carolina Hurricanes – 1 point
