Sabres v. Hurricanes - Scoring Chances

This wasn't the Sabres best game of the season, but only the final score matters in the standings. Some outstanding goaltending by Jhonas Enroth, a fantastic penalty kill unit and goals by Chris Butler and Marc-Andre Gragnani were the recipe for a big a two points.

The Sabres started the game on the offensive and were the better team two periods. That all changed when the penalties started near the midway point in the second period. The Canes seized momentum of the game but they were unuable to solve Enroth and the Sabres penalty kill on six attempts.

It is funny how the game of hockey works sometimes. On Saturday, the Sabres out-chanced the Caps but a late power play goal and a lucky bounce in overtime were the recipe for a Caps victory. On Sunday the tables were turned. It was the Sabres that were the recipient of a lucky overtime bounce that gave Gragnani his first ever NHL and the Sabres their most important victory of the season.

I decided to start a new feature here at Die by the Blade and track scoring chances like many other sites are doing. While this is a very subjective stat and is based mostly on my own opinion, I did use a criteria courtesy of The Copper and Blue.

Here is the definition of a scoring chance via Copper and Blue...

a scoring chance is defined as a clear play directed toward the opposing net from a dangerous scoring area - loosely defined as the top of the circle in and inside the faceoff dots, though sometimes slightly more generous than that depending on the amount of immediately-preceding puck movement or screens in front of the net. Blocked shots are generally not included but missed shots are. A player is awarded a scoring chance anytime he is on the ice and someone from either team has a chance to score. He is awarded a "chance for" if someone on his team has a chance to score and a "chance against" if the opposing team has a chance to score.

 Like many others that are using the app, a special thanks to Vic Ferrari for his hard work in creating this and many other apps.
