Corey is a writer at Canes Country, the SBN Hurricanes site, and I've been following his scoring chance analyses for Carolina all season at his Shutdown Line blog. Sadly, tracking the Canes isn't very interesting these days, so he's been monitoring the scoring chances for the Preds here in the playoffs. Game one of the second round is here, and I believe he'll keep tracking them for the rest of the series. I always find it an interesting read. The highlights (and lowlights) for the first game:
- The Legwand/Bourque/Radulov line was completely dominant.
- The AK46/Spaling/Hornqvist line was by far the Preds' worst, although Horny combined with Fisher, Erat, Weber, and Suter to do some great work on the power play.
- Kevin Klein had a howler. Corey has not been impressed with him here in the playoffs, although I thought he had a couple really nice games against Detroit.
