Sabres v. Leafs - Scoring Chances

The Buffalo Sabres looked like a team that was playing back-to-back games after one week of training camp. The Sabres played well defensively, but the offense was nothing to write home to mom about. The Sabres struggled to generate chances, but in the end it took only two goals to improve their record to 2-0-0 on the season.

Head-to-Head Scoring Chances

This is my favorite chart of the group. This is a list of how many chances each player had against their opponent. A positive number means the Sabres had more scoring chances when on the ice against the player from the opposing team. A negative number means there were more scoring chances when the opponent was on the ice against each Sabres player.

Chances_1-21-13_medium

The chart above indicates the Pominville-Hodgson-Vanek line was the Sabres best line of the game and they had most of their success against the Leafs second line. The Foligno-Ennis-Stafford continues to struggle to generate offense and that led them to be on the minus side in this contest.
