    I thought posters might find of interest the "shot chart" that Notre Dame does.

    For an example, Notre Dame's recent 3-0 loss to St. John's, see

    about halfway down the page.

    I like the way they separate the areas of the field. Doing this kind of tracking seems quite simple and easy.

    St. John's took 9 shots, 5 from inside the area. All three St. John's goals were scored from inside the area.

    In contrast, Notre Dame took 12 shots, but only one inside the area.

    I have heard it said that about half of all goals are scored from inside the area. Does anyone know whether this is in fact true?

    Here's another subject for a good longitudinal statistical analysis.

    Wow, that gamecast definitely has some useful information. The game log has info on every shot and set piece.
