Background

First thing in the morning, checking the results from last night NHL games. How many points did the Finnish players rack up? What's the situation in the leader boards? NHL.com has all the info but it's cumbersome to find out the stats for Finnish players. In the mobile app, one needs to scroll sideways through all the games to see who scored what. The traditional way of checking scores, Teletext page 235 just doesn't seem right in the year 2018.

The goal of these pages is to offer the most important information from last night games quickly as well as the main stats for players and goalies. The pages work quickly in a browser and a mobile. The stats pages are responsive and display different information based on the screen size and orientation. Try turning your phone to landscape view. Moving between pages is quick and should load in less than a second.
