Canyon of Heroes rolled into their matchup against the first place Callahan Auto Parts on a one-game losing streak. The Heroes picked the worse time to put up a season-low three category win in their second straight defeat, 6-3-3.
This loss also had a significant effect on the standings, where the Heroes fell out of playoff contention.
MATCHUP AND SCORES
Someone on Callahan Auto Parts is shaking their heads. They allowed us to tie three categories, goals, game-winning goals, and shutouts.
The final score may look like a blowout, but some categories were closer than the experts could have predicted. They had more assists (9), points (9), a better plus/minus rating (+2), hits (1), and save percentage (0.16).
We prevailed in a handful of categories thanks to 14 more hits, one extra goalie win, and a better goals-against average (0.05).
The matchup started out close only to tip in the opposite direction reasonably quickly. On the weekend we were in good shape to force a tie, but lost all the ground we made up on Sunday night.
STANDINGS & TEAM STATS
Back to back losses dropped us two spots in the overall standings. Instead of being in a safe place, we now have to show how hungry we are and get back the four points we need to get into the playoffs.
A handful of losses tickled down to the team stats. There are eight offensive categories, and we remain in the top 10 in only two of them. Our goalies stay at the top in wins and shutouts, but our numbers are quickly falling in goals against and save percentage.
Roster management was a non-factor across the board in week 11. Only Timo Meier missed out on some action, while no goalies missed a start.
STUDS & DUDS
Best Player – Mika Zibanejad – New York Rangers – 30 points
Worse Player: Anthony Mantha – Detroit Red Wings – (-1) points
We made no roster adjustments during our week 11 matchup.
Weekly Move Total: 0/4
Season Move Total: 6/60
