Neutral has documented the extent of the possession play of the Sharks in this 6-0-1 homestand. I wanted to do a quick compilation of the data compiled at the invaluable timeonice.com. If you want any of the raw data just substitute the game number in the url (e.g. http://timeonice.com/shots1213.php?gamenumber=20558 is for the Calgary game, see below for game references). All of these data are at evenstrength excluding empty net situations.
I will leave the analysis to those who have more time, and Neutral has touched on all of the inferences found here, but a couple of things of note. First, the overall possession stats (+5 Corsi and +50 Fenwick), appear to confirm the possession dominance and shot blocking prowess that will hopefully indicate future success. Second, Dan Boyle and Joe Pavelski are good at hockey (shock!). Though they both had the PDO gods smile upon them, they were dominant in possession and did a phenomenal job blocking shots. Let's hope that the Sharks can continue this on the road and reverse their road woes.
One thing to not is that is not accounted for in this is zone deployment (and if that can be provided that would be illustrative). That would likely depress the numbers of the Marleau-Couture-Wingels combination.
