I am taking timing into account as well, meaning one shot in a high scoring shot at a time, is fine and dandy, but that will RARELY score right away, you need "clusters" of shots, you need that 2nd, 3rd, 4th shot in the vicinity at the same time, to consistently score.

You can't get that from a shot chart.

Yes, I meant that they get a higher percentage of shots from the scoring area, cluster meaning just more in the same area, not time based. Less from the outside and more of a push for high scoring area shots. No way to see if they were rebound chances or not with a shot chart.

Those 4 Flyer games had them scoring 13 goals,

Those 4 Kings games had them scoring 11 goals,
The Flyers had 4 out of 5 games, it took you 20+ games from the Kings to get 4 good games.
