This is one of the reasons analytics should be looked at with a jaundiced eye. Home cooking of the stats goes back a long time in the NHL. Shots in Boston, hits on Long Island. That, plus a lot of the numbers you see are folks sitting at home (not necessarily in their basement) with a legal pad. I hope teams keep their own numbers in house.
Teams do keep their own stats, but for being "official" it appears the off ice officials mailed it in just as bad as the hometown boys did.
I just thought that if you are getting bagged like that, you owe it to your home fans to at least look like you are trying to wreck the shutout. Instead they ran out the clock. That's like the cherry on a crap sundae.
That's 1 way to look at it. The other would've been, HAD they hustled the last minute, there woukd have been Euler fans (legitimately) upset that they could play for 1 minute but bagged the other 59. If you can play for 1, you can play for 2, and if you can play for 2 ...
At that point, fine, they didn't care. F' em.
