# General Questions Thread: The Search for Stats on the Vast Internet

Perhaps one of us can help you find it!! The idea of this thread is to reduce the "clutter"; that is, posts that only serve to ask basic questions, and don't have anything to do with the study on hand. So post away any questions/comments/concerns/hallucinations that may or may not fit into any other thread on this forum!!

Does anyone know where I can find the website that has this information?

http://www.behindthenet.ca/nhl_time_...15+17&ds=8&f5= - lists the top 10 linemates and opponents by percentage

http://stats.hockeyanalysis.com/players.php - lists every linemate and opponent with head-to-head time on ice, as well as goals for/against

Official or compiled from other sources. Playoff and pre-expansion data is also welcome.

I've compiled unofficial numbers from the Hockey Summary Project boxscores. In some cases these differ from the official numbers, probably because of scoring changes not reflected in the boxscores. Download a spreadsheet with those numbers here.

Right, NHL.com doesn't report the team specific numbers anymore. Try ESPN for those cases.

Like provides a definition of - say - a shot on goal, blocked shot, and all of the other stats they use? I'm not asking for the definitions of those two stats, I'd just like to find a site that provides the definitions for all the stats that are tracked.

Do you know if I could get this information in a format similar to behind the net but for all teammates or opponents? I'm really looking for opponents most but would like both.

It looks like hockeyanalysis has all the information I need but it would take me forever to look up each one individually to make the data usable for me.

Below is an example of what I'm looking for either by team or the whole NHL. Preferably with percentages like behind the net has instead of by Time on Ice.

For Teammates:

 Name Bergeron Marchand Seguin Chara Boychuk Bergeron 0 85.1 55.2 35.5 40.4 Marchand 80.4 0 52.3 43.9 39.9 Seguin 67.1 51.6 0 38.8 35.5 Chara 44.2 47.2 33.1 0 61.7 Boychuk 39.3 33.5 31.5 54.2 0 Lucic 6.5 2.1 20 29.3 26.4 etc x x x x x

The top would be the player I am looking at and going down will be the percentage of the top players minutes that each player was on for. So for Bergeron - Marchand was on for 80.4%, Seguin for 67.1%, Chara for 44.2%, Boychuk for 39.3% and Lucic for 6.5%, etc. of Bergeron's minutes.

Same thing for opponents but the column going down will be much longer if it is done by team or equal if it is one huge spreadsheet of all players across and down.

Ideally I'd like game logs in Excel, including as much key data as possible (shots, goals, special teams times, goalies, etc.). Does anyone know of where such a spreadsheet might be available? Thanks!
