Sabres v. Canes - Scoring Chances

The Sabres are no longer among the unbeaten teams in the NHL after a disappointing effort in a 6-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. The second period was once again the Sabres downfall as they gave up chance after chance and fell behind 4-2. The two goal lead proved to be too much for the Sabres to overcome despite an impressive third period.

Wondering how bad the second period was? Take a look at the scoring chances below. I promise they are as ugly as the 6-3 final score.

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.

The chart above shows how the Sabres struggled against the Canes top line. This will have to change on Friday night if the Sabres hope to salvage a split with the Canes in back-to-back games. It is nice to see the Ennis line get some chances, but they need to start burying their opportunities. The team continues to rely on the Hodgson line to score goals.
