Shots or no shots, we're burying chances, which is far more important.
In re: the shot disparity...I do not believe that was a result of poor offensive play, but rather poor D zone play. We had several LONG stretches where we could not break out of our zone, or only had a partial breakout. The Kings had a ton of totally worthless distance shots against Rinne (unscreened). I'm not worried about that...but obviously the Kings were off their game a little bit, because spending THAT much time in our own zone should have resulted in at least one goal if not two.
As for the offense, there's "you can't score if you don't shoot"...but if the boys are making plays, the number of times we shoot really doesn't matter. All 3 of the goals tonight were from relatively the same spot...in the slot. Somebody's been watching Crispy's Breakdown.
Also, credit the Kings for being hyper aggressive on the puck tonight...that also resulted in a lower number of shots.
