Better late than never! Hope you are all enjoying the day before playoff action rolls around again tonight in Anaheim!
Before the game tonight, I thought it would be nice to get to know some stats behind the OT hero from Game 4. Did you know that Corey Perry has 4 career OT goals in the playoffs and 3 of them are from this year alone? Did you also know that he's had 10 years of playoff experience?
Today's investigation will show his moving average for the past 10 years of his playoff goal scoring and it will include three years of data for each point plotted.
*Moving average is good to use when plotting a career because it is much smoother when the peaks and declines in a career are presented.
Moving Average of Playoff Goals Scored Over the Years:
Note: We cannot see 2006 or 2017 on here because one is the first season and the other is the last, and it does not work with moving average. Moving average needs a number to begin it and a number to end when calculating for the average of that year and they both do not have those.
Perry is not quite at his peak but he most definitely is far from his decline from 2013. Let's hope he can keep this up in this season's playoffs!
