Neuvirth was playing against boston lost night to which he faced 7 shots and let in two goals. He was then pulled from the game. Normally he should have 2GA. BUT IT SAYS 9.45GA AND IS RUINING MY H2H STATS!! How is 9.45GA even possible you can't let in .45 of a goal in one game. YAHOO STAFF PLEASE CORRECT!
this one is truely amizing
1) GAA is not GA as mentionned above
2) Your from Canada, especially T.O and cant even make the difference bet'n the 2. You dont even deserve to be in a hockey fantasy league.
You ruined your own stats by starting him, there is nothing wrong with his stats. As the previous post said, it is GAA not just GA. So it is the average number of goals allowed over 60 mins of playing time.
The calculation is as follows: (2 goals / 12.7 mins) * 60 mins / 1 game = 9.45 GAA
The calculation is simple. Sucks to be you.
nope, nothing to correct.
it's not GA, it's GAA.
"The goals-against average projects how many goals a player would allow in a regulation 60-minute game. It is calculated as follows:
Goals-Against Average (GAA) = (Goals Allowed * 60) / Minutes Played
A player's single-game GAA does not always match the number of goals allowed. If a game ends in an overtime tie, the goalie's GAA is slightly less than his goals allowed for the game.
Similarly, if a goalie is pulled for an extra skater prior to the end of regulation, his GAA is slightly higher than his actual goals allowed.
The difference is more pronounced when a goalie is pulled early in a game. For example, using the above formula, a goalie who is pulled after allowing three goals in 10 minutes would have a single-game GAA of 18.00."
