Lightning @ Flyers Scoring Chance Summary


Total Chances: 24 to 16 Flyers

Even Strength Chances: 17 to 15 Flyers

Flyers had a decisive advantage in overall chances but the game was much closer 5 on 5. Ultimately the difference in this game was goal tending. Mason let up 2 softies, one from well outside the scoring chance area. Flyers D shares some of that blame for odd-man breakdowns, but the Lightning defense made just as many if not more egregious errors in their end. Anders Lindback had to make 5 or 6 desperation saves to keep his team on top.

Forwards(Even Strength):

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

Giroux's line was the most productive offensively but they lose points for giving up nearly as many chances against. Rough night defensively for them as a whole. Going by eye-test, I think Giroux made some fantastic individual plays in the d-zone despite his poor numbers. Schenn's line put up some very strong corsi numbers and had the best chance differentials on the team. In stark contrast, the third line was the worst possession unit and didn't generate enough offense to offset their chances against. Berube needs to shake up the 3rd line to see if he can get any sort of momentum in their favor. McGinn's return to the roster is mixed bag. He got a fantastic breakaway chance but was otherwise ineffective and the team's worst possession forward overall. (Might have something to do with spending time on the blackhole that is the third line).

D-Pairs(Even Strength):

  • 1st Pair(Coburn +3, Timonen -2) B
  • 2nd Pair(Grossmann 0, Streit +2) B
  • 3rd Pair(Meszaros +4, L.Schenn -3) C

Coburn and Timonen had fantastic possession numbers but didn't get directly involved in many offensive chances. However they were the best defensive pair this evening, giving up the fewest chances against by far. Streit and Grossmann struggled defensively and were the worst possession pair. Mez had an interesting night, going +12/-8 in scoring chances. He's making some beautiful plays on the rush and was directly involved in creating more offense than any other Flyer in this game. But his high risk high reward style led to the most chances against, just ahead of Mark Streits +9/-7 performance. Forgettable night for L. Schenn as well. I'm not sure what to make of the defense these last two games. There seems to be a concerted effort throughout the lineup to get the defense involved offensively. This certainly brings out the best in Mezsaros. However, I don't think the Flyers have the personnel to consistently be this aggressive on the back-end. Of the 6 defenders, only Coburn has the skating ability to actually recover if the puck is turned over. If the Flyers play run and gun with a slow defense and shaky goaltending, the results won't be ideal.

Special Teams:

  • Powerplay B, 4.8 minutes of ice time, 8 shots, 7 chances, 1 goal.
  • Penalty Kill A+, 6 minutes of ice time, 2 shots against, 1 chance against, 0 goals against.

The Lightning couldn't even get the semblance of a powerplay going tonight. Flyers did an excellent job breaking up their zone entries. The Flyers PP had mixed results. They generated a ton of chances on the 5v3 but couldn't capitilize. They nabbed a quick 5v4 goal later on, but their single third period powerplay was awful. What could have been a springboard for a comeback ended up killing momentum.

Overall Team Performance: B

It was an exciting game to watch, but I think the coaching staff would prefer a little more restraint and commitment to defense going forward. Steve Mason undoubtedly had one of his worst games of the season but the defensive support wasn't there to bail him out this time. The Flyers special teams continue to be excellent, and the 2nd line is looking fantastic. Expect them to produce some points if they can keep up these great underlying numbers.
