# Another One-game Scouting Report for Anderson and Lundqvist

By Kicks @Chrisboucher73
From game 7 of the 2012 opening-round series between the Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers
Despite the 2-1 loss, Craig Anderson's rebound control carried his rating. Henrik Lundqvist's rating was helped by his save-percentage, but hurt by his short-handed rebound control. Lundqvist was also helped by the Rangers collapsing defense, as his teammates combined for 23 blocked shots in the 2-1 game 7 win.
The 6'2", 183 lbs Anderson finished the regular season with a  33-22-6 record, a 2.84 goals against average, and a .914 save percentage. He has a career save percentage of .913 during the regular season, and  .937 during the playoffs.
The 6'1", 195 lbs. Lundqvist finished the regular season with a 39-18-5 record, a 1.97 goals against average, and a .930 save percentage. He has a career save percentage of .920 during the regular season, and .914 during the playoffs.
My scouting reports for goalies focus on their ability to make saves, make big saves, control rebounds, and maintain good balance; the aspects of their game they, and only they, control. The results of these attributes are added together to produce the goaltender's rating. The highest possible rating is 4.00, while the lowest possible rating is 0.00. The higher the value the better a goalie has played.
The first number involved in the calculation is the percentage of saves a goalie makes without giving up a rebound. For example, if a goalie makes 10 saves and gives up only 1 rebound his "no rebound percentage" is .900. Again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

The next number in the calculation is the percentage of safe rebounds a goalie gives up for each rebound allowed. Rebounds deflected outside of the main slot are considered safe. As such, a safe rebound is defined as a rebound outside of an imaginary line drawn from each goalpost to the corresponding board-side hash mark. As an example of this calculation, if a goalie gives up 10 rebounds and deflects 9 of those pucks outside the slot, his "safe rebound percentage" is .900. Again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

The next number is the percentage of saves that would be considered "big saves". A big save is defined as any save made on a play that would be considered a traditional scoring chance. As an example of this calculation, if a goalie makes 5 big saves on 20 shots his "big save percentage" would be .250. Once again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

I also track how a goalie controls the puck. I do this by tracking his successful or unsuccessful pass-attempts, as well as his successful or unsuccessful attempts to dump the puck out of his zone. The resulting numbers are used to produce a ratio of successful plays for every 1 unsuccessful play.

SHORT-HANDED GOALTENDING RATING
Anderson didn't see enough shots to produce an accurate short-handed rating. He faced only 1 shot while short-handed during the game. He stopped that shot, but the rebound landed in the slot.
Lundqvist's short-handed rating was hurt by his save-percentage, as well as his rebound control. He stopped 3 of 4 shots, and allowed rebounds on all 3 of his saves. Two of his 3 rebounds landed in the slot.

OVERALL GOALTENDING RATING
Anderson had a solid overall goaltending rating of 2.13. He stopped 27 of 29 shots, and allowed 14 rebounds on those 27 saves. Seven of those rebounds landed in the slot, and he made 6 saves on New York scoring chances.
Anderson completed 5 of his 7 pass-attempts; giving him a puck-handling ratio of 2.5 successful plays for every 1 unsuccessful play.
Lundqvist earned an above-average rating of 1.98. His rating would have been helped if he allowed fewer total rebounds. He stopped 26 of 27 shots, and allowed rebounds on 18 of those 26. saves. Eight of those 18 rebounds landed in the slot, and he made 4 saves on Ottawa scoring chances.
Lundqvist was successful with all 3 of his attempted passes.
