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.

    This isn't necessary, but would it be possible for the sparklines to show where the game was played (home/away)? Thank you.

    @Ty Do you mean in the graphic or when you mouse-over? We could add it to the mouse-over pretty easily. I'm not sure that it would make sense in the graphic.

    I mean the mouse over. Thank you.
