How are scoring chances measured? How much of it is subjective and how much is based on rules? Here are some basic questions I have: - If there is a 2 on 1 and the defenseman stops a cross-ice pass, is that considered a scoring chance? How about if the pass gets through but the shooter misses the net? I guess this can be narrowed down to whether or not the goalie is forced to make a save. Am I right? Wrong? - How about if there is a breakaway and the defender hauls down the player before they can shoot and it leads to a penalty. Is that a scoring chance even though there was no shot? - Similarly, what if a player is on a breakaway, which is an obvious scoring chance, but just muffs the puck and doesnt even get a shot away. Is this recorded as a scoring chance? I know it's not an objective stat and that some people view it as more important than others but for me i'm just curious about the logistics. Thanks for input.
