Thanks to the guys at the Copper and Blue, we have annotated scoring chances for each of the six games in the opening round playoff series between the Sharks and the Avs that we can compare to the overall shot totals.  Here are the shots and scoring chances from the Sharks perspective with the game tied: 

 

Tied Seconds SF SA 5v5 SCF 5v5 SCA Oth SCF Oth SCA
Game 6 1233 23 10 18 9 3 1
Game 5  1705 35 20 10 4 1 0
Game 4  2889 57 43 17 7 1 1
Game 3  3651 93 33 19 5 7 0
Game 2  1484 14 13 4 9 2 1
Game 1 2629 45 32 8 10 4 1
Totals  13591 267 151 76 44 18 4
Corsi  63.9 63.3

 

Overall, shots and scoring chances converged to the same percentages, indicating that Colorado, despite what the fortune-tellers said, did not have a higher overall quality of chances than the Sharks.  If anything, the Sharks had better scoring chances than the Avs did because proportionally more of their chances came on the PP.

Colorado was an interesting team to watch this season.  But they were fundamentally outgunned against one of the better teams in the league.
