HABS: Game-by-game and Player-by-player Scoring Chances for and Against (games 1 Through 4)

This post will focus on the number of scoring chances for and against each Montreal Canadiens player has been directly responsible for per-minute of even-strength ice-time. The graph displays the number of scoring-chances each player, and the team have averaged per-minute at even-strength. These number DO NOT represent the number of scoring-chances that occurred while the player was on the ice; a player must be directly responsible for either the chance for or against to be credited.
  • Black line = regular season (post Olympics)
  • Blue line = game 1 
  • Green line = game 2
  • Burgundy line = game 3
  • Grey line = game 4

Rene Bourque helped produce the most scoring-chances per-minute during game 4. He was followed by Brian Gionta, and Brendan Gallagher. Josh Gorges led all defensemen in scoring-chances, while David Desharnais was the only forward that did not help produce a scoring-chance in game 4.
Josh Gorges, Subban, Gallagher, Bourque, and Dale Weise are the only Habs to have contributed more scoring-chances per-minute than their season average in each of the 4 games.

Gorges, Subban, and Andrei Markov were directly responsible for the most scoring-chances against per-minute during game 4. Francis Bouillon, Daniel Briere, Dale Weise, Michael Bournival, and Brian Gionta were not directly responsible for any scoring-chances against in game 4. In fact, we have to go back to game 2 to find a scoring-chance against that was credited to either Bouillon, or Gionta.
Lars Eller is the only Habs player to have been directly responsible for more scoring-chances against during all 3 games than he averaged during the season. Game 4 was the first game that saw Lars Eller allow fewer scoring chances-against per-minute than his season average.
