  • Good News: The final score was very misleading.
  • It was another even game (in SCD) on the road versus a division rival.
  • The Canucks came out on fire- a 7-1 SCD in the first 7 minutes.
  • By SCD metrics, this game looked very similar to the recent Coyotes and Sharks games.
  • Bad News: The Canucks only created 4 chances at (ES) in the final forty minutes.
  • For the first time this year, the Canucks surrendered when the floodgates opened in the 2nd.

  • They did have a memorable 1st period shift that held the puck in Kings' zone for over 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Burrows also missed at least two clear scoring chances. One because of a Richards' hook.
  • Christopher Tanev and Dan Hamhuis were the best D-men, they were 15-10 SCD at ES.
  • However, Hamhuis did have three high profile mistakes that led to goals.
  • Dustin 'Fall Down" Brown, Justin Willimas, ans Anze Kopitar were terrific!
  • The Kings top trio had a combined 17-5 SCD in the game!

    OFFENSIVE ZONE ENTRY SUCCESS RATE (OZE%) (Even Strength)

    Most Advanced stat analysis centers around the idea that possession of the puck is huge key to long term success. {Accordingly, Offensive Zone Exit Success Rate (OZE%) attempts to identify the skill of gaining puck possession in the opponents defensive zone}. Offensive Zone Exit Success Rate (OZE%) is expressed as a percentage-{Successful Possessions Gained ('Carry-ins'+'Dump-wins') / Total Attempts at entry}.

    • OZE% shows that the Kings were clearly the stronger team in transition.
    • This stats clearly shows why the Kings are a dangerous team.
    • It is rare for a team to be above 50% in OZE% all three periods.
    • Even in the first period where the Canucks dominated the SCD battle.
    • It was a high risk strategy, and the team left themselves open to the counter attack.
    • Do the Canucks need to rethink their strategy versus better teams?
    • Are they too aggressive thus leaving themselves open to high quality counterattack chances?
    • In any event, the Canucks continue to lose the neutral zone battle.This is NOT a good sign.
    • The Canucks had 20 successful 'carry ins'.
    • The Canucks had only 14 successful 'dump ins' (out of 51) for an ave. rate of (27%).
    • The Canucks aggressive forecheck was ineffective.
    • The Canucks lost the puck battles by a decisive margin.
    • Los Angeles had a high total of 25 'carry ins'.
    • As a result, the Kings were the more dangerous team.
    • And, the Kings 'should' have created more scoring chances.
    • The Kings had 18 'dump in' wins out of 42 (43%).
    • The Kings dump and chase game was vastly superior to the Canucks.

    DEFENSIVE ZONE EXIT SUCCESS RATE (DZE%) (Even Strength)

    • The Kings took over the game in the 2nd period and DZE% confirms this.
    • However, the Kings real strength and success is from their forwards and in OZE%.
    • The Kings D are willing to dump the puck out and force turnovers in the other two zones.
    • The Canucks are having difficulty getting out of their zone with possession
    • The team hasn't been over 50% in DZE% in last 8 periods (except for the meaningless 3rd period vs the Kings).

    EXPECTED SCORE

    {Expected Score is calculated by assigning an approximate percentage value to each shot attempt. It's goal is to capture a truer picture of the game}.


    VANCOUVER

    LOS ANGELES


    TOTAL EXP. SCORE= ES (PP) {SH}

    TOTAL EXP. SCORE= ES (PP) {SH}


    3.9 = 3.3 (.6) {0}

    3.6 = 3.0 (.4) {.2}

    • Expected Score suggests the most likely outcome was Vancouver 4 - Los Angeles 4.

    GOALTENDER RATING - EXPECTED GOALS AGAINST

    {Expected Goals Against is calculated by estimating an expected score value to every save made}.

    • Johnathan Quick had an Expected Goals Against {EGA} of ~ 3.8.
    • Quick's rating was + 2.8.
    • Roberto Luongo had an {EGA} of ~ 2.3
    • Eddie Lack had a {EGA} of ~1.2
    • Luongo's rating was -1.3
    • Lack's rating was +.2
    • The Kings won the goaltending battle by nearly 4.3 goals!
    • In terms of {EGA}, Quick's performance was the best by a goalie this year.

    TURNOVERS (EvenStrength)

    • Vancouver had another high total of 19 turnovers.
    • The Kings only had 11 turnovers.
    • The Canucks lost the turnover battle again.

    THE DECIDING FACTORS

    • The Kings' forwards won the puck battles most of the night.
    • The Kings neutral zone/transitional play was vastly superior.
    • Goaltending performance was the single key factor. (+4.3 goals for the Kings).
    • Luongo couldn't give the team the big save when they needed it.

    NHL Officiating

    • The Canucks again recieved no favors from the officals.
    • Vancouver is currently 25th in powerplays/gm. (They rank 20% below Carolina & the Flyers?!)
    • Vancouver is top 10 in puck possession & are not diving or whining.
    • So much for the skill of of a team 'earning' their power plays?
    • Conversely, their division rivals are getting the 'calls' .
    • The Sharks are 1st. The Coyotes 5th. The Kings 6th and the Ducks 9th.
    • As mentioned, The Canucks dominated the Kings early, and out-chanced them 7-1.
    • They even held the Kings in their zone for 1 and 1/2 minutes.
    • Somehow, Vancouver did not receive a power play call?
    • There is a serious question of integrity or competence with the NHL officials?!
    • The reason why Burrows had to kick his goal in was because of a Richards' hook.
    • Remember when a stick in the mid-section was a penalty?
    • A souffle could be 'baked' and 'flop' in the time it took the official to call a phantom penalty on Hamhuis for his hip check on the Kings' 'Fall Down' Brown.
    • The Kings had numerous late hits that were +5 on the Aaron Rome scale of interference -
    • And, no calls?!
    • And, Canuck fans for the second week in a row, were subjected to abysmal, unprofessional and biased CBC announcers.
    • Canuck fans, tweet @HockeyNight and tell them what you think?!
    • Lat week it was 'Heuy, Dewey, and Louie' and a pathetic Leafs' Love-fest'?!
    • This time, it was Kelly Hrudey who couldn't help but wave his purple undies all night.
    • Hrudely repeatedly failed to comment on Fall Down Brown and Doughty and their diving, the late hits, the interference on the Twins and Burrows, the boarding on Hamhuis, and the numerous terrible calls by the officials. (Brown with goaltending interference, Doughty with a pitch-fork in Kesler etc.).
    • Instead he criticized Sesitio for taking a penalty for hitting the glass?
    • Canuck fans deserve better from a 'national' network?!
    • It is bound to be a battle for the Canucks right to the wire for a playoff position.
    • Let's hope the NHL officials start to give the team the fair treatment they now deserve?!
