Sabres v. Capitals - Scoring Chances

USA TODAY Sports

Tracking the scoring chances in the Sabres 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Sunday was the third consecutive game the Sabres were out-chanced by their opponent and it was their third consecutive loss. The Sabres were without the services of their top scorer, Thomas Vanek, and it was painfully obvious throughout the contest.

If there was one positive in this game, it was the play of Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno. They had been mostly invisible in the first four games, but they provided the Sabres with their only offense on Sunday in Washington. This could prove to be important for the Sabres once Thomas Vanek returns from his injury.

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.
