3rd jersey update

A quick update to a post i made waaaay back in October.

Much to the delight of fans (that hated the mustard jerseys) the NHL has outlawed 3rd jerseys in for next season. So last night's season finale may be the last time we see them.

However, my call was right back in Oct - we were much better with them than without them. Much better.

Here's how the record broke down this year (with one game to go):


win loss otl points %
overall 50 23 8 0.667
home 28 8 5 0.744
road 22 15 3 0.588





home jersey*
17 7 3 0.685
road jersey*
22 15 3 0.588
mustard 11 1 2 0.857
* Yes these numbers include the 2 times this year we wore our road whites at home and 2 times we wore and home blues on the road. We split those 4 games 2-2 so they were a wash.

So, clearly we were at our best wearing the mustard jerseys. Enough that i really have to wonder if it helped. Our blue home jerseys are dark, like the refs...i can't tell you the number of times i've watched home games where we pass the puck to the ref...at least it looks like it. They are very distinctive sweaters and i really wonder if it helps us see each other better for passing.

Maybe i'm nuts. Maybe it was the teams we played.
But given the samples to pull from, i really have to wonder...

I wish i had the time/resources to do this for other teams to see what the results were.
