Islanders @ Flyers II Scoring Chance Summary


Total Chances: 16 to 14 Islanders

Even Strength Chances: 12 to 11 Islanders

The chance numbers only look this close thanks largely to a dominating third period performance by the 1st line. Islanders controlled the better of the play for the first 40 minutes. To describe the Flyers performance as sloppy would be an understatement. Lackadaisical d-zone coverage, a lack of commitment on the backcheck, and some ill advised passes led to wide open chances in front of Mason. But they were able to take advantage of some shaky goaltending by Poulin to keep the score close. Something or someone lit a fire under Giroux's ass because he played like a man possessed to close out this game and steal 2 points.

Forwards(Even Strength):

  • 1st Line(Raffl +3, Giroux +1, Voracek +3) A, Giroux's line was responsible for over half of the Flyers even strength chances. 4 of those chances, and two goals, came in the third period alone. This line also had a huge lead in shot attempts and were the best possession forwards on the team. Claude Giroux put forth an outstanding individual effort, and was directly involved in 6 scoring chances. He also assisted on the game tying, and game winning tallies in the third. Lecavalier got some shifts on the top line and they gave up 4 or 5 chances against.
  • 2nd Line(Hartnell -2, B.Schenn -3, Simmonds -2) C-, Schenn's line only combined for a single even strength scoring chance and this was the weakest possession unit for the Flyers.
  • 3rd Line(Lecavalier -2, Couturier +1, Read +1) C, A little bit better at generating offense than the second line, and Matt Read has put up strong possession numbers ever since his return. But Lecavalier continues to be a defensive drain on both the 3rd and 1st lines. With the exception of the first goal, this line did a okay job at containing the Tavares line.
  • 4th Line(Rosehill +1, Hall -1, Downie -2) D, Noted Corsi beast Jay Rosehill controlled 100% of the shot attempts while he was on the ice. (Only two shot attempts for in 5 minutes of ice time). He also punched someone in the face a couple times. #LEADERSHIP. Using my own beautiful eyes instead of these evil statistics, I thought Adam Hall played well and its always nice to get a goal from the 4th line. But on the first goal Islanders goal he completely lost John Tavares in front of the net.

D-Pairs(Even Strength):

  • 1st Pair(Coburn +2, Timonen +5) A, Timonen's minutes have been very limited relative to his partner, but he's been extremely effective at driving play and gave up almost nothing defensively. Coburn was on the ice for a few more chances against but still a net positive on the ice and he even got involved directly in the offense. In my opinion, Coburn's more effective when he's jumping into the play because he's actually got decent offensive instincts. And unlike the rest of the d-core, he's got the speed to recover if something goes awry.
  • 2nd Pair(Grossmann -2, Streit -1) C, An up and down performance for the 2nd pair. My favorite punching bag Grossmann used his giant ass to screen out Mason on the Islanders 4th goal, and he was generally ineffective at driving play. Streit was marginally better at generating offense than his partner and contributed an assist.
  • 3rd Pair(Meszaros -5, L.Schenn -2) D, I know what you're thinking. Mez scored two goals tonight, how the hell does his pair get a D? Because he gave up 8 scoring chances against, almost double that of his partner and the worst defensive marks on the entire team. If he puts up a chance differentials like this every night, he's going to get burned eventually. And keep in mind, he was largely sheltered from the Tavares line. He got rolled by Cal Clutterbuck and friends.

Special Teams:

  • Powerplay D, 4 minutes of ice time, 3 shots, 3 scoring chances, 0 goals, 1 goal against. Gave up multiple chances against and shorthanded goal against. The PP remains ineffective and ugly on home ice.
  • Penalty Kill A, 6 minutes of ice time, 3 shots against, 2 scoring chances against, 0 goals.

Overall Team Performance: C+

An immense offensive performance by Giroux, Raffl, and Voracek salvage an otherwise mediocre game. The Vinny situation gets more puzzling with every passing game. He just doesn't fit in this lineup and is a defensive liability no matter who he plays with.
