6 crazy stats from the 2016-17 PGA Tour season

  6 crazy stats from the 2016-17 PGA Tour season With the PGA Tour on hiatus until the new year, here's a look back at six astonishing stats from the 2016-17 season. 7 After beginning his second round of the John Deere Classic with six straight pars, Kevin Tway began trimming strokes in a big way. Tway strung together the longest birdie stretch of the season on tour with seven straight budgies beginning on the par-3 16th hole at TPC Deere Run. Tway missed his eighth straight birdie at the fifth, but rebounded by birdying Nos. 6 and 7.

Year after year, the NHL produces some truly mind-boggling statistics.

It's one thing to know who leads the league in scoring or which goaltender has the lowest goals-against average. It's another altogether to know which team is giving up nearly half of its total goals in the third period, or which defenseman has given the puck away far more than any player in the league.

Here are nine of the most interesting stats so far (updated through Dec. 5):

0-for-3: Florida Panthers F Jonathan Huberdeau's shootout line

Huberdeau - as seen in this feature published last week - has worked on his scoring touch. But his shootout game still needs a little work; the electrifying Panthers winger has misfired on all three of his attempts so far this season. He and Anaheim Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg are the only players to not score once on a minimum of three shootout attempts.

2-8-2: The Philadelphia Flyers' record when outshooting foes

So much for more shots equaling more offense. The Flyers have been incredibly unlucky so far this season, winning just two of 12 games in which they have outshot their opponents. That includes five such games during their recent 10-game losing skid; in two other games during that streak, they registered just one fewer shot than the opposition.

16.7: The Buffalo Sabres' win rate when leading after one period

Going into the first intermission with a lead usually bodes well for an NHL team; all but two teams have a winning percentage greater than 50 percent when ahead after 20 minutes. But not those Sabres, who buck the trend here with a dismal 1-3-2 mark when outscoring their opponent in the first. Of course, it could be worse; they're 1-11-0 when trailing after 20.

The Uncomfortable Possibility with Craig Anderson

  The Uncomfortable Possibility with Craig Anderson It’s hard to tell exactly when an aging veteran is “done,” but what if this is what we’re witnessing with Craig Anderson? No fan ever wants to believe that their favourite players will see their play drop-off as they get closer to age 40.

30.6: New Jersey Devils F Brian Gibbons' shooting percentage

  By the Numbers: 9 amazing early-season stats © Provided by theScore

On a sustainability scale of 1-10, with one being "probably unsustainable" and 10 being "guaranteed to keep happening," Gibbons' shooting rate comes in somewhere between -50 and -75. The undrafted 29-year-old remains one of the most heartwarming stories in the league this season, but don't expect him to fill the net as often as he has so far.

38: The Nashville Predators' third-period goals against

How's this for a strange stat? Despite coming into the day in a tie for second overall in total points - and ranking a healthy 11th league-wide in goals against - the Predators are even with the lowly Arizona Coyotes for the most third-period goals allowed in the league. In fact, those 38 goals represent 48.7 percent of all goals the Preds have allowed this season.

43: The Pittsburgh Penguins' 5-on-5 goal total

The struggles of Marner, Nylander could be Leafs' saving grace

  The struggles of Marner, Nylander could be Leafs' saving grace The struggles of Marner, Nylander could be Leafs' saving graceMany once grouped Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner together in one breathless sentence. But that’s no longer the case. Despite injuries, Matthews has clearly elevated himself above the others, adding more solid evidence to the belief that, in time, he’ll become both the highest-paid player on the club and the next team captain.

It has been a trying season for the two-time defending champs, who are struggling to produce offense. The Penguins finished second in the league in five-on-five goals a season ago (185) but sit tied with the Colorado Avalanche for 28th overall with just 43 five-on-five tallies through 29 games. As hard as it is to imagine, the Pens have one of the league's worst offenses this season.

61.38: Anaheim Ducks forward Antoine Vermette's faceoff win rate

Some forwards can carve out a nice career simply by being money on faceoffs - and in that regard, Vermette is one of the best in the business. The Ducks veteran is winning faceoffs at a league-leading rate, edging out Sabres forward Ryan O'Reilly (61.18 percent) for top spot. But Vermette is still below the 62.25-percent success rate he posted a season ago.

62: Giveaways by San Jose Sharks D Brent Burns

It's unfathomable to most Sharks fans to see Burns struggling this mightily. Not only is he stuck on one goal through his first 29 games, but he's also on pace to lead the league in giveaways for the second year in a row. And while the latter statistic won't surprise many - he had a whopping 153 turnovers a year ago - it stands out a lot more when he isn't producing on offense.

Could Friday’s non-tender deadline spark activity for Blue Jays?

  Could Friday’s non-tender deadline spark activity for Blue Jays? The Toronto Blue Jays are expected to non-tender at least one player Friday, and the potential for more movement exists ahead of the deadline. Many of the Blue Jays’ 11 arbitration-eligible players appear to be locks for tenders, Josh Donaldson, Marcus Stroman, Kevin Pillar, Aaron Sanchez, Devon Travis and Roberto Osuna among them. While Ezequiel Carrera and Dominic Leone entered the season in marginal roles, both excelled in 2017 and will be worth tendering again especially given that MLB Trade Rumors projects they’ll each earn less than $2 million in 2018.

158: Washington Capitals D Brooks Orpik's total hits and blocked shots

Combining the two non-scoring statistics in which defensemen are expected to contribute the most - hits and blocked shots - is a great way to assess which blue-liners are most active on the back end. And none are more defense-oriented than Orpik, whose 158 combined hits and blocks are nine more than runner-up Luke Schenn of the Coyotes.

Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien said he put Jacob de la Rose between Alex Galchenyuk and Paul Byron because he didn’t want to mess up the chemistry on his other lines. It worked out better than anyone could have thought.
