The Flyers have done a pretty good job of preventing shots, and therefore scoring chances, to the tune of 26.9 SA/G...good for 6th in the league.

Yet they're 24th for GA per game. When all the stats that monitor defensive quality show the team is doing fine, yet loads of goals are going in, that's a goaltender problem.
Does that study differentiate from a PP or ES? I'm curious as to whether PP opportunities tend to be better than those at ES.
