Some observations from the above data:

1) Again, Voracek with another strong performance, succeeding on all his zone exit attempts and retaining possession (via pass or carry) on 5/6 exits.

2) Couturier, known as a strong defensive forward, had a tough time keeping possession on exits, with only 2/7 exits being exits with possession.

3) Like game 2 in Montreal, Hartnell was involved in the defensive zone. However, again he had trouble maintaing possession for the Flyers on zone exits.

4) Weak games from both Luke Schenn and Mark Streit with regards to maintaining possession on zone exits. I'd expect more from both of them, especially Streit, who is known as a puck moving defenseman.

And now, season totals through game 3

Already we are seeing some trends stick out through 3 games.

1) Voracek is very good with the puck. No failed exits through 3 games and he keeps possession through making successful passes or carrying the puck 82% of the time.

2) Kimmo Timonen has so far been strong, with 10/16 exit attempts being successful with possession. No surprise here.

3) Scott Hartnell, with only 29% exit attempts ending up being successful with possession, is one of the weak links so far in the defensive zone.

4) Talbot, known as a strong defensive forward, has been very efficient, with no failed zone exits and a 78% possession rate.
