I don't want to talk about Raffi Torres much anymore, so I set on compling a few numbers to look at as the Canucks prepare for Game 4 of the series, that will hopefully humiliate Chicago and Patrick Kane.
- Through three games, Roberto Luongo's even strength save percentage (EV SV%) is a remarkable .961 in this series (although that won't last throughout the playoffs. Damned statistical regressions). In last year's series he was at .896 and in 2009 he was at .908 in the second round series' against Chicago.
- Over the course of the series, the Canucks have held the lead for 120 minutes and 22 seconds of play. Chicago has led just 23 minutes and 9 seconds. Despite such a difference in lead which tilts the shot balance in the favour of the trailing team, Chicago has managed just one more shot than Vancouver at even strength (77-76).
