-Killer first shift by Carolina's top line, as they generated a quarter of Carolina's even strength scoring chances in that one shift en route to generating eight even strength scoring chances during the game

-Carolina's top line handily won their matchup against San Jose's top line, as both Joe Thornton and Melker Karlsson finished their nights with -7 scoring chance differentials, and Joe Pavleski ended his with a -8 differential

-What didn't help matters tonight for the Sharks was Vlasic's absence.  Only Irwin-Tenyson found any modicum of success in this game, as Mueller was the only defenseman not named "Irwin" or "Tennyson" that was on the ice for less than seven scoring chances against.  Burns-Hannan had about as much success as the team's top pairing as you'd expect them to.

-Tierney's linemates were mixed and matched throughout most of the third period it seemed like, and it's understandable why, as he was basically the only Shark forward last night who experienced a lot of success in terms of scoring chance production and prevention.

-Last season, the Sharks had a late-season matchup against the Sharks that Elias Lindholm absolutely dominated.  He didn't do quite that well in this game, but he was one of the few Canes non-first line forwards who did respectably well on scoring chances.

-Patty had a good game for the Sharks, but he was really the only Shark other than Tierney who put up impressive all-around numbers

-The Sharks generated a lot of offense off of carry-ins, but unfortunately, they just didn't carry the puck in that often, carrying it in on less than a third of their entries

-The Hurricanes, on the other hand, had a lot of forwards with strong games, and they carried the puck in quite often

-Highlighting the list of Canes who had good entry games are the Staal brothers, with Eric especially putting up fantastic numbers

-Jeff Skinner put up some very non-Jeff Skinner numbers, only carrying the puck in three times on his seven entry attempts.  Odd to see from a guy who usually makes easy work out of the neutral zone.

-Much like with scoring chances, Irwin-Tennyson was the only D-pair for the Sharks that succeeded at all in their attempts to prevent Carolina carry-ins, as that pairing only allowed eight carry-ins against on nineteen entry attempts against.

-Burns-Hannan allowed seventeen carry-ins against on twenty-two entry attempts against, good for a 77% carry-in against rate

-Andrej Sekera's value was very apparent last night as he stifled San Jose's neutral zone forays, only allowing four carry-ins on sixteen San Jose entry attempts against him.  He also denied two of those attempts.

-Hainsey-Bellemore has had a pretty brutal season this year, seeing their effectiveness in tough minutes just about evaporate, but it's good to see that they can still do decent work at the blueline, as that pairing had a 30.8 carry-in against percentage.

-The Sharks didn't have an easy time on zone exits last night, getting way outdone by Carolina in that respect

-Hertl, Nieto, and Marleau were the only Sharks to put up all around good numbers, as Karlsson's high turnover count somewhat sours his otherwise good numbers

-Carolina's top line absolutely dominated this game in every aspect, with their zone exit numbers being just about as impressive as their scoring chance and zone entry numbers

-Although their D as a whole didn't have the easiest time breaking the puck out of the defensive zone, Liles and Faulk did pretty awesome for Carolina

-Carolina's fourth line did pretty well at exiting the zone

-Victor Rask has been having a pretty good rookie season for the Canes, as his work in the offensive zone has been quite impressive.  Admittedly I don't have any real solid idea as to whether or not numbers like these are consistent for Rask, but if they are, that's real good news for the Hurricanes, as they would have a good, young, real solid two way forward on their hands.
