Shot Totals are Stupid

BC has been credited with 45 shots tonight. Even if NU had 80 under their logo (and they don’t, it’s 26), I’d still be sitting here, railing against shots as the be-all, end-all statistical indicator of game flow. Shots mean squat if you can’t develop screens, can’t create cross-ice opportunities, can’t crash the net and can’t finish.

One minute left, and the Dog House let’s ’em know it. BC’s Cam Atkinson on a shorthanded pseudo-breakaway, but can’t pull the backhand trigger early enough to be Thiessen, who has been an absolute rock. He’s just won himself the Eberly Award (highest save percentage in the Beanpot) tonight.
