HABS: Game-by-game Scoring-chances for and Against (including Game 4)

By Kicks @Chrisboucher73
Players must be directly involved in the production of a scoring-chance in order to be credited.
As a team, the Montreal Canadiens were able to produce more even-strength scoring-chances per-minute played during the third game of the season than they were in any of the other 3 games (including game 4).
Montreal forwards had their best offensive-game of the series, as both centremen and wingers produced more scoring-chances per-minute in game 4 than they did during any of the first 3 games.
Rene Bourque was involved in the  production of more even-strength scoring-chances per-minute in game 4 than any other Habs player. Other player's who produced playoff-high scoring-chance numbers include Lars Eller, Brian Gionta, and Daniel Briere.
Defensemen were the only group of position players to produce fewer ES scoring-chances per-minute in game 4 than they did in game 3.

As a team, the Habs played their best defensive-game of the series in game 4. All positions allowed fewer scoring-chances per-minute in game 4 than they did in any other game in the series.
Dale Weise was directly responsible for more scoring-chances against than any other Habs player, while Josh Gorges led all defensmen in this category. In terms of scoring-chances against, Alexei Emelin produced his best result of the second round.
