Last game against the St. Louis Blues I gave you the numbers on missed shots. Tonight, I’ll be tracking the L.A. Kings’ offensive zone entries that result in nothing…as in no shot on goal nor scoring opportunity. Why this stat? Because the Kings’ endless, futile cycling has been nothing short of maddening and when I see opposing teams anticipate the play with ease and kill any potential for premium puck possession, I ask myself how many zone entries go wasted in a game? Of course, to have proper perspective, I will also track those zone entries that do result in a shot on goal or a scoring opportunity. It will be interesting to see how the percentages play out.

GO KINGS!
