Head-to-Head Results for Team/Season on Hockey-Reference

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on February 27, 2014

We've added head-to-head results to the team season pages that allow you to see how a team did against each other team in the league. It also provides a link to the Team Game Finder with all of those games selected.

To use it, go to a team season page and click "Head-to-Head Results" on the menu:

H2Hlink

To see the individual games, click on the last column next to the team you are interested in:

As always, we welcome your feedback.

Schedule Sparklines on Team Pages

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on February 6, 2014

Those nifty little graphics that you've come to know and love on Baseball-Reference and Basketball-Reference are now available on Hockey-Reference as well. Known as "sparklines," they visually indicate when, and by how much, a team won or lost each game. If you mouse-over each day, you can get additional details about the game, and clicking on a day will take you to the box score for that game. They are available on the "Roster and Statistics" page for each team year.

As a side note, you'll also notice that many of the combobox menus have been converted to the standard Sports Reference-style menus across the site. We feel that these provide a better experience for users.

As always, feedback is welcomed.

Olympic Ice Hockey Results at Hockey-Reference.com

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on January 28, 2014

In preparation for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, we have made all of our historical Men's Olympic Hockey statistics available on Hockey Reference.

You can now dig into how the U.S. defeated Switzerland 29-0 in the first Olympic Hockey Quarterfinals in 1920:

Or maybe you remember fondly the 1992 Unified Team that won the gold in its only Olympics:

You can get started by looking at the athletes, the teams, the years, or even the individual games. With the 2014 Winter Olympics rapidly approaching, we are happy to be able to provide you with this data, and welcome any feedback or suggestions to improve it.

Neil Paine Joining FiveThirtyEight

Posted by sean on December 19, 2013

As Nate Silver tweeted out earlier today, Neil Paine is leaving Sports Reference early next month to join Nate's new FiveThirtyEight.com. I know I speak for everyone here at SR when I say I'm feeling a mix of sadness that on a daily basis we won't get to tap Neil's encyclopedic knowledge of European NBA players, his knowledge of pretty much every sabermetric study ever done, his patience dealing with every kind of user complaint, and his wit, pluck, and genuine enthusiasm for his work. But also happiness for Neil that his writing and thinking is getting the platform it justly deserves. I know someday we'll be bragging that we knew Neil Paine before he was a bigshot. :)

I'll be anticipating his articles and I suggest you search them out as well when the site launches in early 2014.

Sports Reference Welcomes David Corby and Hans Van Slooten to Our Staff

Posted by admin on November 7, 2013

Sports Reference has hired two new web developers/engineers/programmers to their burgeoning staff of now five.

David Corby joined us the last week of October and thus far has been shepherding the NBA and College Basketball sites. (Yes, we did give him a lot of time to get settled.) He is a UVA grad who worked in commercial operations at JetBlue. He's a largely self-taught developer with a wide range of development work. David once played against David Wright in a HS baseball game, and he went 4-4 with 4 doubles (Wright did, that is). He is largely a New York fan -- especially a Yankees fan, which proves we stand by our company policy that we don't discriminate on the basis of sports franchise affinity.

Hans Van Slooten (@cantpitch) will be joining us in December, working out of our newly-established Minneapolis branch, coincidentally located in Hans' home (note we do not offer company tours at this branch). Hans will be working on the hockey site and number of new projects/items from our wish list that we previously haven't had the bandwidth to work on. He joins us from OLSON (where he was a technical director) and, previous to that, comScore. He's a Twins and Vikings fan and will also help me source locally produced lefse and lutefisk for the Sports-Reference Christmas party.

SV%+ Is Now GA%-

Posted by Mike on October 17, 2013

After the introduction of SV%+ to goalie stats a little over a week ago, there was some discussion as to whether or not it was the best way to represent goals allowed relative to league average. After reviewing some poll results, we've decided to change things up a bit and switch the representation to Goals Allowed %- (the minus because lower is better). The formula is now 100*((1-player save %)/(1-league average save %)) -- this means that Semyon Varlamov, who currently has the best save percentage in the league at .965 (vs. league average of about .913), gets a 40 GA%- &emdash; on a per-shot basis, he allows goals at 40% of the league average rate. Conversely, Martin Biron has allowed 9 goals on 38 shots, which gives him a GA%- of 273 (yikes). This works out better for us because goalies who have not allowed a goal will get a 0 GA%- instead of getting an undefined value as they would have in the old system.
