Below is the average of ‘CORSI For per 60 minutes' on the Home team and Away team to tell me if this is going to be a shot filled matchup. The graph below is sorted from the most offensively oriented games to the least offensively oriented. To put it in a nutshell, if you want goals scored -€” look at the top teams, if you want to see where your goalie will be seeing few shots and have the best opportunity look to the bottom.

Weekly schedule -€” ranked by CORSI:

Ten Notes:
1. Columbus Blue Jackets. One average opponent (Boston), one real weak opponent (Winnipeg) and one elite opponent (Minnesota) Trust CBJ early in the week, avoid later. How long will the streak continue?

2. Minnesota Wild. Same as CBJ with average (Nashville), weak (NYI) and elite (CBJ). They are on a great tear lately too.
3. Tampa Bay. They have lost 5 of their last 6, injuries are ripping apart the team and now they have 3 opponents on the road in a weak CORSI week. Not a fan.

4. San Jose Sharks. Only two games against sub-average defensive teams but most importantly, here comes Timo Meier.

5. New Jersey Devils. They have been porous on defense and their offense will be challenged with a home and away against Washington who is the 5thstrongest team in goals against.

6.  Washington Capitals. Two against New Jersey, one against NYI and one against Ottawa, this should be a favorable week for the Capitals and Justin Williams, 35% owned, (3 goals) and Dmitry Orlov, 6% owned, (5 assists) have had a solid 2 week span. Dmitry's minutes have been on the rise, something to watch.

7. Colorado Avalanche. They face Calgary on the road, Dallas at home then the Rangers on the road, their offense isn't the best but this is a good start to a week for them. Mikko Rantanen, 5% owned, has a terrible +/- but continues to produce at a modest pace.

8. St. Louis has had a great span lately and they face Nashville and Philadelphia which should provide a chance to continue this. Patrik Berglund, 1% owned, (4 goals), Kyle Brodziak, 0% owned, (3 goals 2 assists) and Robby Fabbri, 38% owned, (3 goals and 5 assists) all doing well.

9. Winnipeg Jets. Not crazy about their schedule with Chicago, CBJ  and NYI on the road. Not an easy stint.

10. Anaheim Ducks. Saving the best for last, 4 games and 3 of them against bottom 10 teams in goals allowed. Rickard Rakell, 51% owned continues to do well with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.
