NBC Sports Philadelphia analyst gives bad-faith, intellectually dishonest critique of corsi and fenwick
Flyers Insider for NBC Sports Philadelphia, John Boruk, shared this tweet on Saturday morning.
Capitals are prime example why Corsi/Fenwick don't make sense. They've outscored their opponent 20-14, but they've been outshot 170-127

As a critique of shot-attempt statistics, this is incorrect. As an analysis of the Capitals, this is clumsy. As a work of responsible journalism, this is a failure.
