Devils Passing Stats Game 3 vs Oilers

I've added totals for the defense and forward groups that total the passes that generate shots directly (SAG), as well as give an average for the group in total passes attempted per SAG. This identifies how each group performed, in addition to the individual data.

The Edmonton game wasn't that active in terms of passing. As you'll see below, the forwards generated 16 shot attempts off of passes. Against the Islanders, they generated 33.

Andrei Loktionov still looks to pass in the offensive zone and after doing this for three games, he certainly looks for Brunner an awful lot. He attempted 10 passes in the offensive zone alone, converting on 6, generating 3 shots.

Defense-wise, Adam Larsson and Marek Zidlicky weren't too sharp in their own zone, while Andy Green was rarely off target.

In the future, I may take a look at neutral zone passing and see if success in that zone leads to anything specific. In soccer, midfielders are sometimes referred to as "linking" play between defense and offense, so I'm going to see if there's anything comparable in hockey.

Vancouver's stats will be up tomorrow. Just passing though. I only do zone exits for the odd games. I've asked the gentleman to post his results here, but I haven't heard back.
