Leafs-Bruins playoff game charts

I've lurked this site for a while, and thought it'd be a good place to share a data visualization that I've been working on. It summarizes the Leafs' playoff series with a focus on possession. The main statistics are shot attempts (on goal, missed, and blocked) and offensive zone face offs. I included goals and power plays as factors affecting possession. Data comes from NHL.com's play-by-play logs.

This is an exercise to practice data visualization and learn hockey statistics, so I'd love to hear any comments about usefulness, accuracy, understandability, etc.

Oh, and reader beware, games 1 and 7 are a scare.
