Scoring Chances Digest: 3/17 - 3/24

The Jackets got more of these against the Blackhawks than you might think. Mandatory Credit: Russell LaBounty-US PRESSWIRE

Interesting week here - one really close loss that comes down to Cory Schneider being a maniac late, a great shootout win, a blowout loss, and a blowout win - that also came with an insane goaltending performance by Steve Mason.

The big difference here? Special teams. Two of Vancouver's four goals came off the power play, while the Jackets had some great looks on their early third period PP but couldn't break through.

Some quite impressive play by James Wisniewski and Jack Johnson - making the next game that much more frustrating.

What's more ridiculous, the Jackets having all of FOUR scoring chances all game, or the fact that they limited Calgary to 13? An amazing defensive effort with a minimum of rest and the battered state of the roster. Perhaps this was also a warning sign for the following game...

In all honesty, both teams had their chances, but Chicago buried, and Columbus did not. Simple as that.

Now, as they say, for a bit of fun.

This game is a massive example of "Quantity is not quality." Despite Carolina putting rubber on Steve Mason almost every other minute, so much of it was outside of the real scoring areas. By the time they really started to drive chances, they were already down three goals. Also don't doubt the value of the Jackets killing off the 5 on 3 and only allowing one real scoring chance despite the 1:30 kill.
