Devils Zone Exits Game 5 vs Flames

Zone Exits Explained

Zone Exits: Any attempt made by a player to advance the puck from their defensive zone. These actions fall into the below categories (as illustrated on the below chart).

(P) Pass: When a player passes the puck out of the zone and it successfully finds a teammate.

(FP) Failed Pass: When a player passes the puck out of the zone, but it fails to find its target.

(PT) Pass Turnover: When a player fails to clear the zone with a pass and it results in a turnover to the opposition.

(C) Carry: When a player skates with the puck out of the zone.

(FC) Failed Carry: When a player skates with the puck out of the zone, but loses possession shortly thereafter.

(CT) Carry Turnover: When a player fails to skate out of the zone with the puck and loses possession.

(CH) Chip: When the player lifts the puck out of the zone or throws it off the boards and out.

(I) Icing: An attempt to clear results in icing the puck.

(T) Turnover: Any action that results in a turnover not already covered.

(X) Other: Any action that results in a successful zone exit not already covered.

At the end of the chart, you’ll see totals for successful zone exits (P, C, CH, X), successful zone exits with possession (P, C), and total attempts. Beyond that, you’ll see a Success Rate % on the likelihood a player had a successful zone exit.

These are broken down into totals both for the individual players and the forwards/defensemen as a whole. This allows us to see how the group performed and who individually was dragging the team down or holding them up.

I’ve tracked the odd-numbered Devils games. Any data from even-numbered Devils games was tracked by Nick Gerli and I’ve pulled from the database we're uploading the raw data to and cleaned it up.

Every 10 games or so, I’ll post a separate article looking at overall play up to that point.

This was the worst game by the Defense in this early season. In the Penguins and Oilers games, the defense operated around 70 - 75% at successful exits. Tonight they were at just 50%, and it was hovering around 40% before the third period began. Typical of the night, Marek Zidlicky had a turnover moments before the final Calgary Flames goal. Just awful.

That's it.
