NHL Playoffs Stats Recap: August 11, 2020

Your home for the statistics and graphs for every playoff game, every night.

Welcome to the first installment of the Playoff Stats Recap.  Each morning, I’ll have the previous night’s games broken down with game charts, similar to the ones I’ve produced for every Nashville game the last two seasons.  This is a one-stop shop for a graphical breakdown of the games, featuring stats from Natural Stat Trick.

I won’t be providing detailed analysis until maybe later in the playoffs, but we have places for just that kind of work.  Check out the respective SBNation sites linked below for amazing coverage of all of these games.

Note: This post may be published before all charts are available, but they will be made available as quickly as possible each day.  For larger versions of each chart, you can right-click and select “Open image in new tab”.
