NJ Devils Scoring Chances: Weekly Post: Part 5

Things sure are looking down - John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Detailing the game by game Devils scoring chance results for a group of games, as we work towards completing a catalog all of the games in the 2013 season. This week, we will cover the Devils at Buffalo 4.7.13 and the Devils at Toronto 4.15.13

This week we will review two recent games, so, yeah, you all know how those went. Dominate shots, attempts, possession, and yes, also scoring chances: lose the game. No surprise really that the scoring chance numbers pretty much tell the same story as everything else.

4.15.13 Devils at Toronto

The Toronto game played on Monday was one of the most dramatic differentials overall. It was also a wide margin at even strength, but the 7 - 0 advantage on the power play certainly skews the overall total.

On the forwards side, it looks like the Henrique (+6/-0 +6), Clarkson(+6/-0 +6), and Zubrus (+5/-0 +5) pretty much dominated, not being on the ice for one even strength (ES) chance against. On the defense, it was Tallinder (+6/-0 +6) and Zidlicky (+6/-1 +5) who really drove play forward in this contest. Overall, like I said, pretty much what was expected at the team level. At the individual level, one thing that was surprising to me was how many forwards came out roughly even overall in their ES numbers.

4.7.13 Devils at Buffalo

This game was very similar to the Toronto game, both at the team and individual level. The team more or less doubled up their opponent both at ES and overall. At the individual level, it was a different set of forwards who drove play and owned the chances. In this game, it was Elias (+6/-3 +3), Sullivan (+6/-2 +4), Zajac (+5/-2 +3), and Loktionov (+5/-2) leading the way up front at evens. On the defense, both Marek Zidlicky (+7/-4 +3) and Andy Greene (+7/-4 +3) were on the ice for many scoring chance events in both directions. The one shorthanded chance by the Devils was the Mark Fayne equalizer.
