Our first player doesn't show up on the shot rankings till 82nd.
Get more shots on net, more pucks go in.
Yep. I discussed this elsewhere.
They are something like 26th in shots per game. They are also 9th in missed shots...that's a huge disparity. The other teams failing to generate shots are also towards the bottom for missed shots, because they just aren't creating opportunities. The Flyers are creating opportunities and aren't getting the puck on net.
You can pick one of a million reasons for that. You've got basically EVERYONE missing the net, even if they're practically in the crease. You've got guys firing shots into defenders. You've got guys flubbing on passes. And then there's also people waiting to shoot for some maddening reason, letting defenders get into position...or just missing when they do.
Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
