Habs Scoring Chances through Round 2

New, comments

Olivier Bouchard was nice enough to record last night's scoring chances.  Here's the 14-game history of the Habs 2009-10 playoff run:

Team Game SCF SCA GF GA
WSH 1 19 35 3 2
WSH 2 16 23 5 6
WSH 3 17 24 1 5
WSH 4 21 22 3 6
WSH 5 17 21 2 1
WSH 6 20 36 4 1
WSH 7 16 28 2 1
PIT 1 14 16 3 6

PIT 3 10 19 0 2
PIT 4 11 25 3 2
PIT 5 18 22 1 2
PIT 6 16 19 4 3
PIT 7 13 35 5 2
TOTALS 215 347 39 40
Score% 18.1 11.5

 

Here's the time played by score for the series:

 

TOI Pct
Down 4  0 0.0
Down 3 570 2.3
Down 2 3281 13.0
Down 1 5101 20.2
Tied 6804 27.0
Up 1 6080 24.1
Up 2 1986 7.9
Up 3 1176 4.7
Up 4 202 0.8

 

The Habs were down 35.5% of the time, and up 37.5% of the time.  Score effects had very little impact on total scoring chances - Pittsburgh really did get almost twice as many opportunities as Montreal, a very effective defensive strategy by the Canadiens if there ever was one.
