FWIW I tried to track dump vs carry through the game to see how they play.

1st period:
MIN: 20/45 = 44%
CGY: 9/21 = 43%

2nd period:
MIN: 6/19 = 32%
CGY 6/20 = 30%

3rd period:
MIN: 21/31 = 68%
CGY: 13/17 = 76%

MIN: 0/1 = 0%
CGY: 0/0 = N/A

MIN: 47/96 = 49%
CGY: 28/58 = 48%

You just couldn't get any closer.

I noticed when the teams were on the PP it was much more carrying and less dumping (see all those penalties in the second) and in the third everyone was dumping, but MIN was dumping and chasing down pucks with multiple forecheckers and CGY was dumping and changing.

Want to see a couple good EC teams play and try this again.


I'd like to do maybe the odd period here or there, but a full game required a lot of attention.

Basically how I scored it was this:

Carry = zone entry where the puck handler maintains control of the puck (either carrying it in or catching a pass at the blue line)

Dump = obvious dump-in or a tipped pass that was meant to get the puck deep

Did not count the following:
- Offsides
- Icing
- Turnovers at/before the blue line (not after entering the zone)...there were a LOT of these as should be expected with modern defense
- Clearing or flip passes from the D zone recovered by the forechecker
- Dumping the puck on the PK
