The Sharks scored four even strength goals last night. These goals came against two different forward lines.
Cleary-Zetterberg-Filppula and Brunnstrom-Helm-Hudler
For all four goals the trio of forwards was on the ice well in advance of the goal being scored. Lets take a closer look at the historical performance of theses line combos.
Frequent references will be made to my previous article where I solve the Red Wings problems with the perfect line combos.
Red Wings and consistent line combinations have never really been something that go together. And since the Wings have been shall we say inconsistent so far this season it seems like a good reason to try and rethink the lines and dig into some advanced stats.

Overall Prediction Record
Here at HockeyCSSI we have a great deal of hockey data available to us. Sifting through the data to arrive at interesting and more importantly statistically significant information can be challenging at best. To this end J.J. and I have been working to develop an all encompassing system for player evaluation. This system’s stated goal is to evaluate a player based on the following concepts
In this post we are going to take a look at an old but ever relevant Wings question of whether Babcock is better advised to play Datsyuk and Zetterberg on the same line or separately. This post is also an attempt to serve as a tutorial to using some of the statistical tools available exclusively at HockeyCSSI.com

As many of you are aware JJ and I have been working on a new NHL stats system. During the course of development I have made an effort to try to incorporate as much information as possible into the system.
