Scoring Chance Tracking, Game 5: Detroit vs Columbus

Columbus came into Detroit as the lone win less team in the NHL and left on Friday night as the lone win less team in the NHL. The play at even strength was pretty even, but the Red Wings separated themselves on the power play. Columbus didn't generate a single power play scoring chance that I tracked tonight while Detroit had three chances (more "opportunities" which either didn't get to the net, were from too far out to really be considered a "chance" or weren't able to even get a shot away.) and seemed to capitalize on many of their chances regardless of game state.

As always, big ups go to Vic Ferrari of Time On Ice fame and his wonderful script allowing me to present these numbers.

The Red Wings numbers are in red (hooray backround's with different colors!) and Columbus' are in blue. Detroit only out-chanced Columbus by one at even strength, 7-6 but held a 13-8 advantage for the game on the back of their three man-up chances -- two of them coming on the 5-on-3 that Nick Lidstrom eventually scored on.

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

Head to Head Chart
(Lineup's compiled from Vic Ferrari's shift chart for the game)

Game_5_detroit_vs_columbus_png_medium

 

How to read the chart: The entire chart is from the Wings perspective. Any black number is a positive number, a red number is a negative. If there is a zero in the space, it means the player was even for whatever match-up you're looking at. If there is a blank space, the player was not on the ice with the other player in question.

  • Radek Martinek was crushed by Darren Helm early in the game (Martinek's first shift, actually) and never returned. Because of this, Columbus seemed to rotate Fedor Tyutin with Aaron Johnson and Grant Clitsome.
  • I found it interesting that the last of the four forward lines for Detroit to see the ice tonight was the Hudler-Filppula-Franzen line. 
  • Clearly-Datsyuk-Zetterberg took advantage of Aaron Johnson's increased ice time with Johnson being a -3 overall against that line. The top Wings forward unit was positive against both of Columbus' top line. 
  • Typical of any line Sami Pahlsson's ever been apart of in his entire existence on this earth, his opposition didn't do much of anything. Anyone Pahlsson went up against were negative in the scoring chance department. 
  • Speaking of defense, Darren Helm subjectively had a good game. He comes out -1 here but while watching the game I kept making mental notes of Helm either having a good back-check or good stick-check or good body-check or being in the right place to shut off a passing lane. Just goes to show that scoring chance tracking is still missing nuances of the game.
  • Per usual, Nick Lidstrom and Ian White really mitigated anything the Jackets' top line wanted to do all night. Yawn.
  • The teams started at a quick pace combining for eight chances in the first period and five of those came in the first 10½ minutes of the game. Beyond that, though, it wasn't too frenetic of a game with prime time scoring chances.
