Tortorella trusts Boyle more to start in the defensive zone than Anisimov, for sure. But that doesn't mean that he trusts Boyle more overall. That's just an indication of each player's respective faceoff ability and each player's respective role on the team.

And yes, advanced stats do work in hockey. Unlike baseball, though, they still require interpretation.
