At the Admirals home opener, we were treated to a power play that went 3/3 with the man-advantage.
Since then, they’ve converted just one power play into a goal.
For the season, it’s 4 goals on 27 chances for a 14.8% success rate.
At this point, it’s one of those stats that I can make sound really bad, or not so bad at all.
It’s the least amount of power play goals scored by any team in the league. Okay, that doesn’t sound so great.
But their current ranking is 21st out of 30 teams. They’ve had the least power play opportunities in the league too. The Adirondack Phantoms have had the most in the league with 62 chances. Although they’ve played in two more games than the Admirals, it’s kind of nuts that they’ve had more than twice the chances the Ads have had.
And the Milwaukee power play percentage? Better than the Wolves, who are at 11.9% (5-for-42). Also better than the Rampage, and the defending Calder Cup champs from Binghamton.
Is the power play broken? That depends on what you look for in the power play. Here’s what Coach Muller thinks.
So according to him, he’s not as unhappy about the power play because they’re getting chances. They just need to be better at finishing. Coffee is for closers.
So Roundtable, what do you think? Do you determine whether a power play is broken strictly by success rate, or that in conjunction with whether or not they’re getting decent chances?
