Calgarypuck Schedule Tracker
Some things in NHL hockey are very clear, and take little by way of in depth analysis to parse out. A team has 60 points and sits in 4th place in the conference, they have a game in hand on the team above them. A pretty easy concept to get your head around.
But what about a 60 point team sitting in 4th spot with a game in hand and having a much easier schedule to finish the season? Then you’re on to something.
Calgarypuck will attempt to bring some clarity the schedule comparison by rating each Western Conferece team’s finishing schedule in three ways; home schedule, road schedule and overall schedule – all based on the winning percentage of their soon to be foes. The three charts below represent those numbers sorted top down easiest to hardest.
