Avalanche @ Flyers Scoring Chance Summary

Total Chances 17 - 17

Even Strength Chances: 13 - 13


A perfectly dead even game. Colorado came out strong and convincingly won the 1st period. The Flyers responded by taking command in the 2nd period, going 9 to 2 in chances. 3rd period was evenly contested. Flyers were able to hold off a late push by the Avs with the goalie pulled and survive a bit of a softie given up by Mason from an extreme angle.

Forwards(Even Strength):

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

The bottom 6 got a bit exposed defensively. Thankfully the Flyers top two lines made up for it with some very strong performances. A surprisingly strong night for the Schenn line in both possession and scoring chances. Couturier's group drew a lot of minutes against the Duchene line and struggled. And the Flyers muckers and grinders got caught out against some of Colorado's more dangerous lines. The addition of Raffl is helping them, but that 4th line is still a glaring liability at times.

Defense(Even Strength):

  • 1st Pair(Coburn -5, Timonen -5) F
  • 2nd Pair(Grossmann +3, Streit -2) B
  • 3rd Pair(Gustafsson +4, L.Schenn +5) A

Timonen had a rough night in his first return to the lineup. The first pair got demolished in both chances and shot attempts. 2nd pair was much better in comparison, and Grossmann actually had a very positive outing. He's stringing together some very good games lately. Which is great for the Flyers, but I'd be hesitant to say he's suddenly fixed his game. Still, we've got to give him credit when its due and he's been playing better of late. Erik Gustafsson had a fantastic game along with his partner Schenn. He was the most offensively involved of anyone on the Flyers blue line, with 3 scoring chances directly to his credit.

Special Teams:

  • Powerplay B, 6.8 minutes of ice time, 10 shots, 4 scoring chances, 1 goal. The PP had a touch of difficulty generating quality opportunities but they eventually figured it out and potted a big goal. And the Avalanche do run a quality PK unit. All in all a passable game.
  • Penalty Kill B, 5.2 minutes of ice time, 5 shots against, 3 scoring chances against, 0 goals against. Another quality outing from the PK unit. No complaints.

Overall Team Performance: B

Overall a solid win for the Flyers highlighted by a very strong performance by the Top-6 forwards and a nearly shut-out worthy performance by Steve Mason. Timonen's less than stellar return is a small concern, hopefully he bounces back strong Saturday.
