If you haven't been on Twitter following the advanced stats crowd lately you've probably missed the Hex-charts which have popped up. They're the brainchild of @acthomasca a Canadian statistics professor who teaches in Pittsburgh. Although he admits to stealing the idea from Grantland's Kirk Goldberry in his article (http://www.acthomas.ca/comment/).
I'm just going to present the charts here and let you guys have at em. They're pretty interesting. Remember we're comparing the shots the Flyers have taken/allowed to the league averages. If you want a really bad example look at the Leafs.. this is bad.. red.. red is bad..
Easy to see that the Flyers didn't generate enough shots on the road and certainly weren't capable of getting the puck in tight where ALL players tend to have more success. Think Wayne Simmonds banging in goals on the doorstep. Defensively they gave up, in general, too many shots against on the road.
They certainly did a better job of getting the puck low at home, but still not good enough in the low or high slot. A lot of good point shots from the middle of the ice, but those shots from the perimeter on the wing aren't what I'd call high percentage. The defense actually appears to have been great at keeping opposing offenses from the front of the net and especially the low and high slot. However those 'good point shots' I just mentioned being taken by the Flyers from the middle of the blue line seem to be more in favour of the visitors.
