Head-to-head scoring chances


201314g4_h2h

  • Strangely, considering their dominance on the chance count in their four-game sweep of the Canucks last spring, the Sharks have outchanced Vancouver in their two games against them this season by a considerably smaller margin than they did Phoenix and New York. Still, a 12-5 edge at evens, including a 8-1 advantage when the score was within a goal, is nothing to sneeze at.
  • If we're nitpicking, the Sharks' inability to create a single scoring chance over the course of three power play opportunities was the one blemish of their performance last night. Ultimately, that isn't going to happen often but at least the early returns suggest John Tortorella may have a counter to the San Jose man-advantage that Alain Vigneault just couldn't muster five months ago.
  • For a player whose stock fell prior to his draft due to concerns about his skating ability, Tomas Hertl is averaging around two breakaways a game so far this season. To state the obvious, he's a lot of fun to watch.
  • Marc-Edouard Vlasic (as well as his partner Justin Braun, of course) had a marvelous game. When he was on the ice at even-strength, the Sharks outchanced Vancouver 8-1, outshot them 14-5 and outscored them 3-0. He also opened the scoring and already has just two fewer points than he recorded all of last season. Vlasic deserves some serious Olympic consideration by Team Canada at this point.
