All-time shootout records

Over the past three seasons, 87 goaltenders have taken part in an NHL shootout (as of yesterday).

The best of the bunch in the silly thing have been Johan Holmqvist, Marc Denis, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Miller, Tim Thomas and Manny Fernandez. Those who have struggled include Vesa Toskala, Evgeni Nabokov, Niklas Backstrom and Miikka Kiprusoff.

Martin Brodeur's allowed the most shootout goals (30), and he's the only one to have faced more than 100 attempts.

Here's everybody (the league average save percentage has been .668):

What seems interesting to me is that if you match the catching glove of the goalie with the handedness of the shooter, the shooters perform much better; about 6% against left-handed catching goalies (the vast majority), and about 12% against right handers.

Anyone know what's up with Mika Noronen's numbers?

er... number?

I think he was hurt midway through a shootout.

Tim Thomas continues to kick ass and still gets no respect.

Thomas has been quite streaky in his career; we've seen 20-game stretches like this before. If he keeps it up, I'm sure he'll get all kinds of respect.

It's only a matter of time before we see goalies specializing in the shootout, much like a closer in baseball. There is a non-trivial difference between (for example) Hasek's SOPct (.595) and someone like Johan Holmqvist (.879). Having Holmqvist as your #3 goalie, but dressing him every night in case of a shootout could mean a few more points in the standings at the end of the year for a very minimal cost.

Vitaliy Kolesnik's ticket back into the league?

Or Jose Theodore's ticket to stay...

Considering what a goaltending factory Finland has become, it's quite odd that only one Finn is above the league average save percentage (Lehtonen at .740).

Then again, the Finns tend to be very team-oriented, rather than solo artists.

Rickster, it's a lot harder for a goaltender to come into a game cold than a pitcher (for one thing, pitchers can warm up in the bullpen, goalies don't have a mini ice-sheet to warm up on) and breakaways are probably the hardest play to stop without some time to get into the rhythm of the game. I doubt if you'll see "closers." What you will see more of (you see it to a small extent already with teams like the Rangers and Stars) is teams that just play defense through the overtime because they believe they'll win in the shootout.

A team with three top scorers and a top goalie could conceivably win every game in the shootout, if they had a committed defense that could take them to that round regularly.
