Leafs Vs. Stars Scoring Chances

When the Leafs walked out of Dallas with a 4-3 shootout win, it was apparent to anyone who watched the game that the boys from Toronto were lucky to walk away with one point, let alone two.

Jonas Gustavsson was good enough and lucky enough to hold the fort, and a couple players other than Phil Kessel managed to pot three goals on Kari Lehtonen.

The Leafs were out-chanced 16-8 at even strength, and were hanging on by their teeth in the third, when they were out-chanced 7-2.

This was the worst game - in terms of scoring chance differential - for the Lupul-Bozak-Kessel line by a wide margin. Lupul was out-chanced 12-1, Bozak 10-1, and Kessel 8-1. Woof. Future teams should look to this game as a way to beat the Kessel line.

The list of Leafs to out-chane their opponents at even strength is short: Connolly (3-0), Kulemin (3-1), MacArthur (3-1), Crabb (4-2), and Gunnarsson (2-1), who didn't finish the game.

More, after the jump.
