Canadiens @ Flyers II Scoring Chance Summary

Total Chances: 15 to 10 Flyers

Even Strength Chances: 13 to 4 Flyers

It took awhile for the Flyers to get into this game. In fact, they only generated 4 scoring chances in the first 30 minutes of play. Yet they managed to capitilize on 3 of those chances on poor Peter Budaj. After they already obtained the 3 goal lead, they started to take off offensively. Overall Corsi numbers were pretty even at 5v5, but the Flyers blocked a ton of shots to help out Mason.

Forwards(Even Strength):

  • 1st Line(Raffl +5, Giroux +6, Voracek +5) A
  • 2nd Line(Hartnell +1, B.Schenn +1, Simmonds +2) A
  • 3rd Line(Downie +1, Couturier +2, Lecavalier +2)B+
  • 4th Line(Vandevelde -1, Hall 0, Rinaldo 0) C

A very odd game from a fancy stats perspective. Giroux's line had the worst overall CorsiFor% on the entire team but they were leaps and bounds ahead of everyone in generating chances for. And they only gave up a single even strength chance against. Corsi numbers aside, its good to see this line stringing together dominant offensive performances. Schenn's line was the best Top 9 Corsi performer yet just barely came out ahead in chances against. They struggled defensively in the 1st period, but turned it on late in the game and generated a flurry of scoring chances. Couturier's line was very average from Corsi perspective. However, they did generate a couple chances for while giving up almost no chances against. That's a nice change of pace from the last few games in which they've bled chances against. Even still, when measured against the rest of the team they were the weakest unit offensively. I wouldn't say the 3rd line is out of the woods just yet. As for the 4th line, they were just the Flyers best possession unit by a wide margin. Unusual numbers aside, they failed to produce a significant volume of chances. Rinaldo did score a goal on the lone 5v5 chance this unit put together, which is nice. Just goes to show you how much luck is involved in producing goals when the weakest two units overall are able to put up 2/3rds of your offensive production.

D-Pairs(Even Strength):

  • 1st Pair(Coburn -1, Timonen 0) C
  • 2nd Pair(Grossmann +2, Streit +7) A
  • 3rd Pair(Meszaros +6, L.Schenn +2) A

Low event hockey for the 1st pair. Almost nothing dangerous happened with them on the ice either for or against the Flyers. Also a below average Corsi score. Streit and Mez are your defensive stars of the game. They carried their respective pairs and put up huge numbers. But out of the two, Mez was the more directly involved in generating offense. Andrej is aggressively jumping up in the play and creating some very dangerous looks of late. Passable performances from Grossmann and Schenn round out a pretty good outing for the defense.

Special Teams:

  • Powerplay F, 3 opportunities, 2 shots, 2 chances, 0 zero goals for, 1 goal against.
  • Penalty Kill A, 4 opportunities, 5 shots against, 4 chances against, 0 goals against.

The PP was anemic offensively and the 2nd unit gave up a shorty against. Overall the powerplay had a few moments of extended zone time and solid puck movement. It just didn't translate into anything especially dangerous. The PK continues its strong play. Montreal only had 1 powerplay where they were able to get set up and really generate. Other than that they were completely shut down.

Overall Team Performance: A

Solid game all-around the line up and a great PK gives the Flyers high marks overall. It wasn't all perfect, but close enough to get a convincing win. The home power play remains abysmal and huge concern moving forward. Keep a close eye on the 3rd line to see if this game represents a step forward for those 3 players or if it was simply a blip on the road to mediocrity.
