Scoring Chances for Game 1 vs Buffalo

As you may have ascertained from some of the comments, I have taken on  tracking scoring chances for the New York Rangers.  Thanks to the efforts of Vic Ferrari at Irreverant Oiler Fans and timeonice.com, this is not as daunting a task as it could be, merely requiring the time to watch games (having the ability to rewind and watch in slo-mo certainly helps of course).

To answer the question "what is a scoring chance,"  here's the definition being used

A scoring chance is defined as a clear play directed toward the opposing net from a dangerous scoring area - loosely defined as the top of the circle in and inside the faceoff dots, though sometimes slightly more generous than that depending on the amount of immediately-preceding puck movement or screens in front of the net. Blocked shots are generally not included, but missed shots are. A player is awarded a scoring chance anytime he is on the ice and someone from either team has a chance to score. He is awarded a "chance for" if someone on his team has a chance to score and a "chance against" if the opposing team has a chance to score.

After the jump, you'll find the results of game 1 against the Buffalo Sabres:

Two comments here, you'll note that Buffalo had 7 of the last 9 chances as the Rangers took their foot of the gas with a big lead.  The report (and subsequent charts) also ignores Dubinsky's EN goal, which I'm trying to get to the bottom of.

For those additionally curious, here's the breakdown on a player versus player basis for 5v5 only, with the ice time courtesy again of Vic Ferrari's scripts.  Special thanks to Derek @ Copper and Blue for the formatting, saving me some tedious work.
