Levis Dominate in Mammoth Win


By Melissa Dafni

When you see one team has 61 shots on goal while the other has 32, you’d probably assume that team won the game, right?

And what if I told you the winning team had a 25% shot conversion while the losing team had 11.5%?
If it weren’t for the PHENOMENAL job Chris Levis did in net, the game wouldn’t even have been close.

The Mammoth provided the Roughnecks with entirely too many power play opportunities and while everyone expected Geoff Snider to dominate on face offs (which he did taking 79%); Mammoth struggled on rebounds and loose balls giving the Roughnecks extra opportunities, especially in the 4th quarter.

While the Mammoth did a great job converting on the low number of shots taken on net, the Roughnecks did a fantastic job overall keeping them away from the net and giving them very little opportunities. But that’s the problem. With the amount of offensive talent on the roster, they should be making opportunities, but they’re still looking flat and not playing as aggressive as they need to.
