Anyone else noticing this trend...

San Jose Outshoots Colorado 40-21
Colorado wins 5-2

Toronto Outshoots Montreal 46-27
Montreal wins 4-3

Vancouver Outshoots Calgary 42-23
Calgary wins 5-3

Chicago Outshoots Florida 55-24
Florida wins 4-3

Detroit Outshoots St. Louis 34-23
St. Louis wins 4-3


Thats 5 of the 6 finals so far this season, the only game that hasnt fallen in to this was the Boston v. Washington game. Seems very interesting... wonder if there is an explanation or just random stats from a small sample size.

When outshooting the opponent teams are currently 1-5.

When allowing 40 or more shots teams are 4-0.

I think it's just the sample size. In the case of San Jose, they may have outshot them but they were seriously outplayed.

When teams are losing, or being out played, there is a tendency to just "throw it on net" and hope. A bunch of low percentage shots don't mean much. Now, I didn't see these games to comment on the quality of shots, but it's something that can occur and explain the results.

that won't last long. The team that had more shots in all those games is the better team.

Well the Jackets were 20-19-5 last season when having more shots fired than their opponents. This opposed to being 21-12-4 when allowing more shots than they take. (if you are wondering why this doesn't add up to 82 games, it's because some games had tied shots fired/allowed. Teams that take more shots are usually doing so because they get behind early and have to take bad shots to generate chances. You can't get fancy with your passing if your down early, just gotta take shots, look for the rebounds etc.

So if anything for some teams, as see like the Jackets, do better when taking less shots.

Also I'm pretty sure a lot of other teams face the same situations

I've noticed this trend : Brooks Laich on pace for 246 point season!

Because one game is a massive indicator of how the rest of the season will go....
