This is an LA Kings Insider project where we track offensive zone entries by the Kings during 5-on-5 play. The shots generated total includes all shots on goal, shot attempts that miss the net and shots that are blocked. The overall goal of this is to have a statistical way of examining whose play is helping to generate the Kings’ offensive attack. Failed attempts include being turned away by the defense, turnovers and when the play goes offsides. Controlled entries are when the puck is carried or passed successfully over the blue line. Successful entries include all controlled entries and times the puck is dumped in. Keep in mind there are a lot of spreadsheets, official and unofficial scoring information and algorithms trying to make this work in concert with the subjective nature in the evaluation of play.
