Neutral Zone Analysis: 2014-2015 Season: Game 23 AT Washington


The #s above are more generous to the Isles than they should be…the Isles had a big deficit in the third period which allowed the Caps to sag off.  That said, the Caps won the neutral zone this game by sheer # of entries – leading by 15 at one point in the 2nd period, even though they didn’t really out-carry the Isles.    The Isles looked really exhausted at times in this game, and for good reason due to the brutal schedule leading up to it.  And the Isles losing Lubo in the 2nd period only made it worse, although those effects weren’t really felt in the neutral zone.

Well, you’re not going to outplay your opponents in every game.
