SAN DIEGO -- Seeing Malcom Floyd crumpled on the ground with a knee injury, Philip Rivers wondered if hed just thrown his final pass to the 10-year veteran. Teemu Selanne Jersey . "I thought the same thing, too," Floyd said Tuesday, less than 24 hours after straining his right knee when he collided with cornerback Shareece Wright during practice. "I came down pretty funny. I was pretty contorted. That stuff goes through your head when you go through something like that. But Im here walking and its something were going to take day by day." Floyd and the Chargers got good news when an MRI exam Monday evening revealed a strained knee, not a more serious injury like the one that will sideline fellow starting wide receiver Danario Alexander for the year. "It was scary, how I came down it," Floyd said. "But, you know, MRIs dont lie." The Chargers dont know when Floyd will return to the field following Mondays injury. It could be two to four weeks, or longer. The Chargers open the regular season at home against Houston on Sept. 9. Floyd said the knee is sore, but added: "Im walking on it, in Crocs." He was wearing a white pair of the plastic shoes. "I was excited. Im not going to lie," coach Mike McCoy said about his reaction to hearing that it was a strain. The last thing the Chargers needed was to have Floyd out for the year, like Alexander. Alexander, who has a history of knee injuries, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee a week ago. Although Floyd was moving slowly, "Hes doing great today," McCoy said. "It was a great relief last night to get the news that we received. When guys go down you always fear the worst and then we got the news that we did. It is what it is and hell be back out here as soon as he can. He had a smile on his face this morning because it wasnt anything serious." Floyd and Wright collided during a one-on-one drill. Wright also collided with Alexander when he got hurt. "Its been tough. Just looking at the film, I felt better than how it looked," Floyd said. "It could have been worse and Im in a better position now than I was laid out on the field." Floyd said he texted Alexander "to say that I could be in his position. He just wished me the best of luck going forward." He said he hadnt spoken with Wright. "Its just part of the game. Its a physical sport and my past couple injuries happened because of the physical nature of the sport. Fortunately, I kind of dodged a bullet with this one." Hes been slowed by hamstring, hip and ankle injuries, and has played a full season just once, in 2009. Rivers was relieved. "The thought crossed my mind after the play, because it looked so bad, I wondered if it was the last pass I ever threw him," the quarterback said. "Because you never know. It was almost like getting a new player." Also Tuesday, rookie receiver Keenan Allen left practice early to receive treatment on his left knee, which he injured last season while at Cal. "He has the wear and tear of camp," McCoy said. "He had a little ding when we brought him in from college and it got to the point today where we thought he should go in and get some treatment. We rested a lot of guys today, because theyve been doing a lot of running. It was just a good day to give him a little extra treatment." The Chargers play at Chicago on Thursday night. Kyle Connor Jersey . -- With Tony Allen back, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to turn up their defence pressure and hold off the Los Angeles Clippers down the stretch. Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys . -- A year ago, Flavia Pennetta was close to retiring from tennis. http://www.hockeyjetsauthority.com/logan-stanley-jets-jersey-c-27/ . -- Top-seed Shahar Peer and Canadian Eugenie Bouchard advanced to the second round of the inaugural WTA Citi Open.If you had two sets of data, one being a teamís shooting percentage, and the other being a teamís ability to generate shot-attempts, which set would be better in terms of predicting future 5-on-5 goal-scoring ability? At first blush, one may guess the former. After all, it gives us the percentage of shots on net that result in a goal. The latter set of data only tells us how frequently shots are generated, and tells us little Ė if anything Ė about a teamís goal-scoring ability. But, thatís not the case. Plenty of work has been done on this topic, particularly at even-strength. The answer is clear: shot-attempt metrics and puck possession proxies like Corsi are much more predictive than shooting percentage, primarily because shooting percentage is swamped by random variance. Itís important to note that this also holds true for special teams. While many hockey analysts appear to obsess over raw conversion rates, the same above principle Ė that shot generation is far more predictive of future success (or failure) than shooting percentage Ė is vital in forecasting future success. Why? Because shooting percentage, even in a power-play situation where scoring chances are aplenty, is not a very repeatable skill. Itís easy to illustrate this by simply grabbing a teamís shooting percentage over the first half of the season, and finding how well it correlates to the teamís shooting percentage over the second half of the season. Taken from the years 2007 through 2011: I included the coefficient of determination (0.01) Ė or percent of variance explained Ė to illustrate the randomness in shooting percentage. As you can see, a teamís 5-on-4 shooting percentage through the first 41 games of the season does nothing in terms of telling us how well it will convert on shots over the next 41 games. Shot-attempt generation, we know, is a repeatable 5-on-5 skill. Does the same hold true for 5-on-4? Letís grab the CorsiFor/60 for the same teams in the above sample, and see if their first-half numbers and second-half numbers show similarity. The graph and coefficient of determination here are much more convincing. A teamís ability to generate (or not generate) shots through the first 41 games will likely carry over to the next 41 games, which means this particular measurement has predictive value Ė far more than, say, shooting percentage. More than anything else, I think this topic is timely. If you poll members and fans of the National Hockey League as to who the leagueís deadliest power-play is right now, I think youíll get a stunningly similar response in the Pittsburgh Penguins. Now, thatís a decent choice Ė they have a ton of talented forwards, they have exhibited ability to generate shot-attempts with frequency in every game-state, and they have puck-movers on the back-end who can whip the puck through the neutral zone with tempo. All of that iss fantastic However, the primary reason I think most would select the Pittsburgh Penguins right now is conveniently tied into the fact that theyíve converted on 31. Teppo Numminen Jersey. .6% of their power-plays through a 17.54% shooting percentage, second-highest in the league. But, if we are trying to forecast future outcomes, we know to move away from shooting percentages and gravitate towards shot generation. How do the Pittsburgh Penguins look in that aspect of the game? Power Play CorsiFor/60 Rank Team CorsiFor/60 1. Washington Capitals 127.7 2. San Jose Sharks 114.3 3. Arizona Coyotes 113.9 4. Philadelphia Flyers 106.2 5. Chicago Blackhawks 104.2 6. Toronto Maple Leafs 102.5 7. Winnipeg Jets 102.3 8. Detroit Red Wings 101.5 9. Boston Bruins 100.9 10. Ottawa Senators 96.8 11. New York Rangers 95.2 12. Pittsburgh Penguins 95.1 In reality, what we have in Pittsburgh is a good power-play with elite scoring talent. Iím highly skeptical, however, that itís going to be the best unit by the end of the season, because it still pales in comparison to the units established in Washington (currently 28.8% conversion rate; 2nd) and San Jose (currently a 23.8% conversion rate; 4th), both historically and through the first leg of 2014-2015. Washingtonís power-play has been performance art for years, and if nothing else, these early season numbers show the kind of incredible ability they have at blitzing opposing penalty kill units. Their scheme starts with a series of well-designed neutral zone rushes, and almost always features the likes of Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson on the right-side of the ice, with Alex Ovechkin waiting in his one-time wheelhouse for cross-ice passes. Backstrom and Johansson generally engage in sequences of back-and-forth passing to draw the defense deeper towards their own crease, which sets up two other options away from the Ovechkin primary at the blueline. If the defense pays too much respect to Ovechkin, Mike Green, John Carlson, and Matt Niskanen hammer away from the point. And if the defense pays equitable respect to the point shot and Ovechkin, Backstrom and Johansson needle their way deeper into the box of the penalty kill. If teams are looking at ways to improve their power play through modelling the attacking styles around the league, they could do worse than Mike Johnstonís Pittsburgh Penguins. But, right now, the kings of 5-on-4 still reside in the D.C. area. And, the king of predictive utility for power-play performance is still embedded in shot attempts.
