Game 62: Flyers @ Capitals Scoring Chance Summary

Team Summaries:

Good to see the Flyers finally make some headway at even strength play. They we're definitely the superior 5v5 team and owned the better of the overall play in the last 40 minutes. But this game was won on specials teams. The caps have a great powerplay and it showed today. It accounted for nearly 50% of their offensive chance production. Despite never technically scoring while a man up, the Caps drew a ton of momentum from each successive power play and were able to score soon after a few PP opportunities. Washington could control stretches of the game because of the Flyers utter lack of discipline.

Forwards(Even Strength):

Head to Head Match-Up

Read this left to right. i.e. Giroux's line was a +4 against Johansson's line.

Giroux has awoken from is Olympic slumber!! Finally the Flyers first line got back to kicking some ass at even strength. G was the most involved forward with 4 scoring chances directly to his credit. Schenn's line struggled defensively in both chances against and shot attempts. But they made up for it somewhat by generating a good helping of offense. Couturier's line played steady low event hockey with not a whole lot happening either way. Raffl's line put up some surprising possession numbers in limited minutes but it didn't translate into any offensive chances.

Defense(Even Strength):

Ok, who replaced Grossmann with a competent hockey player? Not only was that pair the best even strength unit by a wide margin, but Gnome actually registered an offensive scoring chance. THE WORLD DOESN'T MAKE SENSE ANYMORE. Coburn and Kimmo were solid, and like Coots line, played generally low event hockey at even strength. Mez and Schenn bore the worst of it defensively today.

Special Teams:

Although the PK gave up its share of chances, they didn't give up a goal and managed a shorty on a sweet pass by Coots. The powerplay was efficient with 2 goals and more importantly made a 5 minute opportunity count for a massively important goal late in the game.

    Overall Team Performance: B+

    The Flyers overcame a truly awful first period with a great final 40 minutes. They controlled play and rallied from 2 goal deficit. All around strong play from both the forwards, defense, and special teams. The only caveat, the Caps aren't that strong of an even strength team this year. Lets see if the Flyers can do it again Wednesday.
