Flyers @ Rangers Scoring Chance Summary

Total Chances: 20 to 17 Flyers

Even Strength Chances: 14 to 9 Flyers

You might be surprised to see the Flyers ahead in the chance counts. By all accounts they player poorly. But the Rangers leaned heavily on Henrik Lundqvist to close out this game, as the Flyers outchanced New York 10 to 1 in the 3rd frame. Flyers had their chances to climb back into this game in the 1st and 3rd but couldn't capitilize and the Rangers scored 3 goals on their first 3 scoring chances. Plenty of blame to go around, but I'm sure Emery would like the first goal back. Goaltending has been the story of the past 2 games in my mind, with both Mason and Emery giving up some terrible goals. Bottom line, the Flyers mistakes are ending up in the back of the net, and the opposing team's mistakes aren't.

Forwards(Even Strength):

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

Schenn's line had a fantastic offensive night. They created the majority of the Flyers scoring chances and Brayden Schenn was individually involved in more chances than any other Flyer. I honestly expected the Giroux's line to be big negatives tonight, but I guess my eyes were wrong. They managed to come out slightly ahead in chances despite terrible possession numbers and a lackluster offensive game. Couturier's line was actually the team's best Corsi performers, but they were offensively dormant yet again. And the 4th line got Rosehilled! Jay posted a 22% CorsiFor score, which is god awful even by his standards. If he's gonna be in the lineup, he should at least have the decency to punch a face or two.

D-Pairs(Even Strength):

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

The Grossmann/Streit pairing was the weak link overall. But if you look at the scoring plays individually I think Coburn had some glaring defensive errors as well. In particular, Kreider's power play goal was a comical level of inaction on Braydon's part. Mez/Schenn and Coburn/Kimmo had some solid offensive numbers to offset their defensive errors.

Special Teams:

  • Powerplay B, 5.9 minutes of ice time, 8 shots, 4 scoring chances, 1 goal.
  • Penalty Kill C+, 9.2 minutes of ice time, 9 shots against, 7 scoring chances against, 1 goal against, 2 scoring chances for

The PK wasn't as sharp as usual. New York just missed connected on several wide open net opportunities, which shouldn't happen. However, the Flyers did generate a couple of shorthanded chances. PP was passable but struggled somewhat in converting their shots in quality chances.

Overall Team Performance: C+

The Flyers were playing catch-up for virtually the entire game. A combination of poor goaltending and defensive errors cost them. High notes would be Brayden Schenn's performance and the 2nd line as a whole. The uptick in Mezsaros's offensive production these last 3 games is also intriguing. Keep an eye on him in Buffalo. If he keeps this up, he might just start earning his big contract. Though I'm far from sold on him.
