Power Play Efficiency
Here is our power play chart using the adjusted percentages, which calculates actual Power Play Efficiency. Please click here for an explanation of this method.
The differences in the adjusted percentage and the standard percentage are usually slight- but as it currently stands, some interpretations can be made:
- Vancouver continues their dominance with the extra attacker as the only team to need less than seven minutes of power play time to score routinely.
- Nashville has crawled their way to have the second best PP unit in the league, yet no player on the team is on pace to reach 30 goals. Incredible.
- Similarly, it seems Phoenix’s power play was better when they were in the same boat in terms of more even team scoring. Coincidentally, now that Vrbata is lighting it up and already has 23 goals, their power play is worst in the league in terms of efficiency. They need just about twice as much time on the power play than Vancouver does to convert.
- Philadelphia gets by far the most time on the power play, and thankfully for them, are rather efficient on it.
- The Rangers have only scored four power play goals since December 12 and have dropped in the rankings considerably because of it.
