Zone Exits Game 3 Devils vs. Oilers

Well, that was depressing.

In other news, compared with the Penguins game, the Devils were more efficient overall at clearing their zone. I added two columns that total successful zone exits (Pass, Carry, Chip, and Other) and failed attempts to clear the zone (Failed Pass/Carry, Carry/Pass Turnover, Icing, and Turnover).

For the Penguins game, we had 96 successful clears and 33 failures, for a team success rate of 74.42%. Most at fault for dragging the team down? Marek Zidlicky, Anton Volchenkov, Damien Brunner, and Adam Henrique who were all at 60% success or worse.

As the chart below shows, the team improved from that game. We finished regulation 5-on-5 situations with 84 successful clears and only 21 failures, for a team success rate of 80%. As you can see, with 12 fewer successes and 12 fewer failures from the Penguins game, we had 24 fewer zone exit attempts, which certainly indicates less time spent in our zone. As no one would be surprised by this statement: we controlled the play better against the Oilers than the Penguins.

We still had a few issues against the Oilers. Most notably Adam Larsson, Andy Greene, and Peter Harrold who finished at 58.33%, 60%, and 50% respectively.

Steve Bernier was the only forward to finish at 50% or lower.
