Great assessment. It is good to see the numbers backing up what I have been thinking all month-- the Kings get a lot of shots but a lot of crappy shots. Point shots where the goalie has a clear view, or slow developing one-timers at the faceoff circle, or bad angle shots when driving wide and throwing on the net (typically with no teammate driving the slot to pick up the rebound). Quick had a rough outing last night but he also had uncovered Pens forwards a few feet away from the net taking shots.
Advanced Corsi needs to give higher weight to shots in the slot area.
