Mike Fail (Mike Pfeil is my real name) has written for SB Nation’s Matchsticks and Gasoline, the Nation Network’s FlamesNation, and random other locations here and there over the last few years. Recently he joined Hockey Graphs, the leading hockey analytics blog full-time to contribute educational and visual content.

In the last couple years, I’ve grown to love special teams more than humanly possible and I want to make an effort to provide whatever value I can to the discussion specifically around the penalty kill.

I don’t expect anyone to ever pay me for anything I research, track, write, or analyze here. That said, if you do like what I do please share it or do something good like donate time or money to your local animal charities.
