These data reflect every 1972-1973 Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender appearance that I have in my database. For more details on each goaltender, click on their name at the top - or bottom - of the table.

DEFINITIONS AND TERMS: For each game, the opponent (and location) and result are displayed. If a goaltender appeared in a game, then their statistics appear in their table column. Goaltenders who started a game are underlined in the table. Statistics shown are their game record (win, loss, tie), minutes played, saves and shots faced.

HOT AND COLD PERFORMANCES: Based upon the season, opponent, playoff environment (as applicable), and number of shots faced, I determine a baseline expected number of saves for each goaltender appearance. I then measure the goaltender's actual performance using a normal approximation to a binomial distribution (yes, this violates several statistical tenets). If a goaltender performs a standard deviation above expectation, then I color their apperance green (darker green equals +2 SD, and even darker green equals +3 SD). Conversely, if a goaltender performs a standard deviation below expectation (or worse), then I color their appearance red (or darker red).

NOTES AND CAVEATS: Game logs have been compiled using the best information that I can find, including websites, books, media guides, programs, newspaper archives, and team correspondence. For a detailed list of known concerns, please click here.

Note that I enter all of these data by hand, which can lead to some inaccuracies and imperfections. I am always looking for assistance in making these more accurate, and welcome your help. If you would like to contribute or make a correction, please send me an e-mail.

For the 1983-84 season and prior, one of my key sources was the Hockey Summary Project, a tremendous resource and one of the best data collections on the Internet. In return, I have attempted to make these data better where possible.

These data are provided as is, and no warranty is offered as to their accuracy (although I do my best).
