They were still generating tons of shots and scoring opportunities. And the point is they were playing against the best players the opposition had to offer and had the puck. Constantly. They're both near the top of the league in possession playing some of the toughest minutes of any forward in the NHL this year. That's what wins games. Shooting% is inherently transient.
