Scoring Chance Tracking, Game 2: Detroit AT Colorado

We're continuing the Scoring Chance Project with the recap of the Detroit-Colorado game from Saturday. You can read the WIIM recap here and the CSSI analysis here. If you need a quick little run down, my recap of the scoring chances in the game against Ottawa last Friday can be found here through the wonders of the internet. I also have a wonderfully nerdy (and equally exhilarating) surprise at the end of the post. Firstly, the period totals:

Period Totals EV PP 5v3 PP SH 5v3 SH
1 8 8 3 7 5 0 0 0 0 1 0 0
2 7 4 7 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
3 8 3 8 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
4 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Totals 23 15 18 14 5 0 0 0 0 1 0 0

The Red Wings are in bold. Despite the overall totals in the first period being tied at 8, note that the Wings accumulated 5 of those on the power play and Colorado had a short-handed scoring chance as well. Detroit, then, was out-chanced 7-3 in the first period at even strength which really jives with what Mickey seemingly harped on the entire game: Colorado controlled the play at even strength for a large portion of the first period (though, it was really only the first 5-8 minutes of game play, not the first 15 like Mickey kept claiming but that's splitting hairs I suppose).

Here are all the scoring chances that I tracked for the game:

Top even strength forward for Detroit: Dan Cleary, +11

Worst even strength forward for Detroit: Val Filppula, -6

Top even strength defenseman for Detroit: Nik Kronwall, +8

Worst even strength defenseman for Detroit: Ian White, Brad Stuart, -1

Again, I think I'm probably counting a few too many scoring chances but Dan Cleary did seem to be in on everything.


The following table isn't entirely accurate because mid way through the game Mike Babcock put Datsyuk back with Zetterberg, thus throwing off the "line up" that I had for both teams. With that glitch in mind, I've got a head-to-head chart that you can see below.

(click to enlarge the chart)

  • Again, the numbers are a bit whacky thanks to Babcock moving to a Cleary-Datsyuk-Zetterberg line rather than the one that was the original plan of Hudler-Datsyuk-Cleary. Looking at the shift chart, Babcock seemed to make this move around the 19 minute mark of the first period, but a power play ensued and that was used as a power play forward combination the entire game, so it's hard to tell. It became the top line though, definitely, around 6 minutes into the second period and they remained together the rest of the game.
  • Still, Nick Lidstrom and Ian White looked to really struggle with what was a very, very good Landeskog-O'Reilly-Winnik line. Landeskog in particular stood out to me, despite what looks to be a poor scoring-chance-against night. He looked strong below the goal line, quick feet and always seemed to be where he need to be to disrupt what Detroit wanted to do or help what Colorado was doing offensively.
  • Val Filppula had a rough night.
  • Helm, Abdelkader, Bertuzzi stayed together and were largely ineffective.
  • Ryan Jones seemed to be in on anything Colorado did offensively.
  • Detroit took one on the chin from Colorado to start the game, but played one of the more impressive third periods you'll see, out chancing the Av's 8-3 in the third period alone, including 6-0 through the first four minutes of the period.

Good win overall for Detroit in a back-to-back against a former rival (Colorado hasn't been good enough to be a Red Wings rival, in my opinion), in the altitude for their home opener on the jersey retirement night of one of their greatest players. Also, they did it pretty convincingly. Hard to find many flaws in the Wings game Saturday night.
