"I have yet to see a team run over their opponent like the Los Angeles Kings": WCF Scoring Chances

Corey S. of the Shutdown Line and NHL Numbers tracked the scoring chances for the Kings-Coyotes series. The Kings not only out-shot Phoenix, they out-chanced them by a wide margin.

Scoring chances are defined as an unblocked shot attempt within the "home plate" area in front of the net.

This flies in the face of the notion that the Kings had mostly perimeter shots, even in their single loss in Game 4.

The Kings also out-chanced the Coyotes 7-1 in Game 5's OT.

It's safe to say that officiating was not the biggest factor in the outcome of this series. Overwhelming pressure was.
