Ever heard of quality over quantity? That number on the shot column is insignificant is the shots are coming from the wall and outside the circles. I'd say that the zero on the goal column should explain that. We're not talking about creative scoring chances. We're talking about going to the danger areas and crashing the net hard. Get an ugly goal, pay the price, but nobody was willing to do that tonight.

The problem is that the Kings didn't even attempt to go to the danger areas. See that shot from Williams late in the game with the Kings on the PP? Nobody was within the vicinity of Luongo. He was uncontested on a good chunk of those 38 shots.
