Neutral Zone Analysis: 2014-2015 Season: Game 11 @ San Jose


The above #s were practically unaffected by score effects – the Isles got some extra carries late, so they just barely won the neutral zone. But, as you know, this is how the Sharks have worked the last two years – they’re the RARE team that wins the Offensive and defensive zones, while slightly losing the neutral zone. It can work…it’s just REALLY hard to pull off and nearly every team trying it fails. The Sharks’ numbers last night are textbook for how it is when it works.
