Nothin' Bruin; 4-5 loss to Boston - Advanced boxscore

A wild first half the game with suspect goaltending on both sides saw quite the open game before Tim Thomas turned it on in the third period helping the Boston Bruins withstand a Toronto onslaught of scoring chances. Despite a goal from the newly-signed Mikhail Grabovski and a late powerplay, the Leafs dropped a heartbreaking one at home, again giving up a big chunk of goals to the Bruins.

Welcome to the advanced box score—we will provide scoring chance details, who took or set up chances for either team, as well as the Statistical Three Stars and its companion, the Statistical Three Goats, which is based on a player's actual performance during a game and not necessarily the results.

First off, here's a look at individual chances. A scoring chance is a shot, either a goal, save or miss, taken within the scoring area marked above. A chance created is awarded to a player who makes a clear, deliberate attempt to set up the chance and finds a player in space.

Toronto Chances Taken Chances Created Total Chances
Phil Kessel 3 0 3
Clarke MacArthur 2 1 3
Matthew Lombardi 2 0 2
Mikhail Grabovski 2 0 2
Carl Gunnarsson 1 0 1
JM Liles 1 0 1
Nik Kulemin 1 0 1
Tim Connolly 0 1 1

Big game for Phil Kessel offensively, who got put with Clarke MacArthur and Mikhail Grabovski after Joffrey Lupul got hurt, a line that I think has some potential.
