Context, context, context.

Devils do a very good job of limiting shots overall. We have a system in place with forwards that are good at keeping the puck in the other teams end. We also have mostly hard working back-checkers and are good at keeping the opponent to the outside in the defensive end.

But we do have a pretty mediocre group of defenseman. Blown assignments, weak net-front presence, mind-boggling turn overs right in front of the net. Which, I would guess, leads to a higher ratio of scoring chances to shots. Not saying we necessarily give up more scoring chances/game than most teams, it's probably roughly even. But we do give up less shots than most teams, which would lead to a higher ratio.

But, as we all know, all shots are created equal and have an equal percentage chance of being stopped.
