Scoring Chances In Game 4 Between San Jose And Colorado

The San Jose Sharks continued their domination of the Colorado Avalanche, once again doubling them up in the scoring chances department. The Copper & Blue has more .

This game was a strange one.  The Sharks dominated for long stretches, and the Avalanche would counter-punch for brief moments, usually with their bottom two lines.  There were extended stretches where there was no action at all, the Avalanche were doing their best to clog the neutral zone (I noticed at least three sequences where the Avalanche played a 0-3-2) and the Sharks looked confused by the Avs' plan.  The final six minutes of the first period saw just three scoring chances with a three minute sequence of neutral zone scrums resulting in no chances at all and a seven minute stretch in the second saw no chances at all.  The third period was very tentative as there were two separate sequences, one that was six minutes long, one that was four minutes long with no chances.  Four sequences making up 1/3 of the game were dead time, but the other 2/3 of the game saw 43 chances, by far the most in the series thus far.
