Scoring Chances: Game 76, Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins

This is not a scoring chance.

New feature time! Thanks to the awesomeness of Todd, New Zealand's biggest Flyers fan, we're now going to have scoring chances data for our team. You've likely seen this stuff at other SB Nation hockey blogs, including Blueshirt BanterLitter Box Cats and The Copper & Blue. Now, Broad Street Hockey joins the club. 

You've also likely seen this stuff on CSN's game broadcast, which for a lot of us is extremely frustrating. Why can't they make that data public? Why can't the NHL officially track these? We know that teams individually track them, too, (how many times have you heard Peter Laviolette discuss scoring chances, with numbers, in his post-game presser?) so it's not like the data isn't out there.

Well, that's the goal here. Scoring chances are obviously very valuable bits of information, and now we can learn from what the data shows us, track it over the course of the season, etc. It's exciting (or should be) if you're someone who likes to analyze hockey from any level. So, after the jump, Todd's data from last night's game in Pitt. - Travis

What is a scoring chance?  A scoring chance is defined as a clear play directed toward the opposing net from a dangerous scoring area -- loosely defined as the top of the circle in and inside the faceoff dots, though sometimes slightly more generous than that depending on the amount of immediately-preceding puck movement or screens in front of the net. 

Blocked shots are generally not included but missed shots are. A player is awarded a scoring chance anytime he is on the ice and someone from either team has a chance to score. He is awarded a "chance for" if someone on his team has a chance to score and a "chance against" if the opposing team has a chance to score.

Thanks to Vic Ferrari's script for allowing this to happen.

In future editions, we'll analyze the data a bit more. Today we'll just post it. - Travis
