Neutral Zone Analysis: 2014-2015 Season: Game 20 vs Pittsburgh


And here is the neutral zone data for the Isles’ home game against Pitt on 11/22, the second half of the home and home. This time around the Isles DID dominate the neutral zone, as they did dominate the whole game.  A carry-in rate of 59% is amazing, and holding the pens to 43% is great, and of course the Isles out-entered the Pens as well.  John Tavares once again had a ton of carry-ins, ala last year, which is a great sign.

Overall, between the home and home with Pitt, the Isles outplayed the penguins in the neutral zone overall, with a neutral zone fenwick of 51.6%.  Given that the Pens are an elite opponent, that’s a pretty great sign.
