Head-to-head scoring chances

201314g46_h2h

  • Another really low-event game in terms of scoring opportunities, which I think is a natural byproduct of all these injuries up front; you don't necessarily want the types of players populating the Sharks' current bottom six to be taking chances offensively since the upside is fairly low.
  • San Jose outchanced Boston 6-1 with Zdeno Chara on the ice at even-strength which is a pretty remarkable feat. Credit the Joe Thornton line who had their second dominant performance in a row against an opposing team's big guns.
  • The Bruins top six as a whole combined for just one scoring chance at evens as the Marleau line did a good job to keep Patrice Bergeron's unit in check as well.
  • This loss can mostly be hung on a really poor night for the Sharks' bottom six forwards, which is going to happen when four of them aren't even NHL-caliber. He isn't a cure-all but I have no idea why James Sheppard isn't playing unless there are some injuries issues there we aren't privy to.
