Habs wingers continue to struggle along half-wall

Through the first 2 games of the series versus the Boston Bruins, Montreal Candiens wingers have turned the puck over 39.5% of the time they have attempted a play with possession in the defensive-zone; the  same group of players turned the puck over only 24.9% of the time they had possession against the Tampa Bay Lightning in round one.

This graph displays every Habs player's defensive-zone puck-possession success-rate through the first two game of round 2. Turnover-rates can be calculated simply by subracting each player's possession success-rate from 100. Josh Gorges, Alexei Emelin, and David Desharnais are the only Montreal players to have better d-zone possession ratings against Boston than they averaged during the Tampa Bay series.
