This is a first post in a series of DIY analysis articles I'll be publishing during the off-season.
How to use
Choose a team, then choose a player. The "Summary" at the top is a player's corsi events (for events minus against events) broken out by misses, saves, blocks, and goals. The "Corsi Events by Game" chart shows the events by game. If you click on a stat in the legend at the top, it will highlight the bar in the stacked bar chart. The player's actual corsi for each game is hidden behind the bar charts. You can click on corsi in the legend at the top to reveal that player's trend line. At the bottom are two tree maps. One tree map shows the distribution of for events and the other tree maps shows the distribution of against events. If you click on a specific game number in the
"Corsi Events by Game" chart, the Summary and tree maps at the bottom will show the events for just that game.
How to share
If you want to share something interesting either in the comments you can create the chart you want (complete with filtering and highlights) then click on the "share" button at the very bottom of the dataviz. If you chose the email link you can copy and paste a link that you can share in the comments section, facebook, or twitter, that will take people directly to the view you created.
If you write for a blog and want to embed this visualization in your blog (if you want to create a chart for your team, or want to do your own analysis post on your own St. Louis Blues blog), make the chart you want to show, and then click the "share" button at the bottom. Copy and paste the embed code, and then embed it into the html code of your article. If you have any problems, you can email me and I would be happy to help you troubleshoot any problems you might have.
I look forward to reading your analysis down in the comments section. Don't forget to post the link to the chart you create.
