Just look at the example....
200 shots, 185 saves, 15 goals .925 save pct
200 shots, 180 saves, 20 goals .900 save pct
20 - 15 = 5 goal difference,.... 5 / 20 = .25 = 25% less goals between the two.
I guess you're right? Thats mathematically confounding to me.
I suppose the goaltenders with .925 are close to 2.00 GAA and the ones with .900 are around 2.80, so it makes sense when you look at that stat too.
Damn math, you scary!
