About This Data

Thanks to Kevin Sidwar who began documenting the still un-documented NHL stats API which was used to gather this data, and became available here.


This dataset provides an in depth look at the performance of teams in the NHL during the 2020-2021 season. With this information, we can try to predict the outcome of games, or performance of teams. 


Team’s names and other information are held in a separate sheet here

Things to try in the data set:

Group Data

Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!

Filter Data

Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.

Search Data

Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.

Key Insights

Overview

The Colorado Avalanche dethroned the two-time defending champions in the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 in Game 6 to become the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions on Sunday night at Amalie Arena. In light of this victory, we thought it appropriate to take a look at some hockey data.
