At home he’s a Torres

Odd stat of the playoffs:

Raffi Torres overall: 21 games, 3 G, 4 A, +3, 15.8 Sh%

Raffi Torres home: 11 games, 3 G, 3 A, +6, 25.0 Sh%

Raffi Torres road: 10 games, 0 G, 1 A, -3, 0.0 Sh%

The only point Torres has scored on the road is an assist on Jannik Hansen’s goal in the Canucks’ 8-1 Game Three loss at TD Garden.

What’s odder is, Torres’s regular season splits were almost exact mirrors of each other:

Raffi Torres regular season: 80 games, 14 G, 15 A, +4, 78 PM, 12.2 Sh%

Raffi Torres regular season home: 40 games, 6 G, 8 A, +5, 17 PM, 12.2 Sh%

Raffi Torres regular season road: 40 games, 8 G, 7 A, -1, 61 PM, 12.1 Sh%

Other than tripling his PM and a slightly worse +/- on the road (presumably the result of unsuccessful line matchups on the road, or just random luck in a small sample size), Torres had the same Sh% and almost as many goals/assists (helped somewhat by his 11/2/10 hat trick at Rexall Place).

What does this mean for Games Six and Seven? Well, nothing. Other than an excuse to quote Gang of Four.

Go Canucks!
