Scoring chances: ECQF Game 6, Philadelphia Flyers at Buffalo Sabres

The first period was filled with penalties and bad plays by Michael Leighton. Unsurprisingly, the Sabres took advantage of their powerplays to score two goals on four chances. The Flyers didn't manage a single chance on their powerplays, which included some 5v3 time. The chances for that period were 7-7, with all seven of the Flyers first period chances came at even-strength, including a goal to Danny Briere.

The second period started well for the Flyers, with James Van Riemsdyk finding a loose puck in the slot and shooting it past Ryan Miller to cut the deficit to one. Briere scored again, this time on the powerplay, to tie the game up. In the final ten minutes of the period, the Sabres generated nine more chances, while the Flyers only had one more through Danny Carcillo. In that time, the Sabres had five powerplay chances, including a Drew Stafford shot that hit the post. Nathan Gerbe scored past Brian Boucher's glove to regain the lead for Buffalo. Chances for the second period were 6-11 in favour of the Sabres.

The teams then traded chances in the third period until there was 15:00 remaining and Brad Boyes was stopped by Boucher. The Flyers then generated the next eight chances, including a goal to Scott Hartnell, and the Sabres didn't get a chance until 3:26 remaining. Final chances for the third period were 9-3 to the Flyers.

There were three chances in overtime, two for the Flyers and one for the Sabres, but the only chance that really matters was Ville Leino's game winner.

Final chances for the game were 24-22 to the Flyers. The Flyers were better at even strength with the chances 18-13, and generated six chances on the powerplay and allowing nine on the penalty kill.

  • Giroux (+9), Coburn (+8), JVR (+5) and Timonen (+5) were very good. Zherdev with +4 was not bad either.
  • Despite all the praise Meszaros was getting in the game thread and recap, he was actually terrible by scoring chances, finishing with 11 against and a -7 differential. All of LBH also had negative differentials.
  • DSOD finished +3 in only five minutes of even strength time.
