Oilers' Even Strength Scoring Chances Through 12 Games

This isn't so much an article as much as it is an information dump.  I thought it would be interesting to look at the Oilers' even strength scoring chances through 12 games just to see if there's any information to be gleaned from the numbers.

5v5
GD
Total Even +1 +2 -1 -2
Chances For 124 49 32 26 17 NA
Chances Against 112 30 42 25 15 NA

The Oilers have yet to trail by 2 or more goals this season.  So there's that ridiculousness.  The percentages are below:

5v5
GD
Total Even +1 +2 -1 -2
Chances For 0.525 0.620 0.432 0.510 0.531 NA

The 62% chance ratio with the score tied isn't sustainable, but it's fun to watch while it lasts. To put this in context, 62% is better than the Sedins against the Oilers last season.  The opponent's 38% is worse than Ryan Jones last season.  62% is better than the Southeast versus Florida's 4th line last season.  Tom Renney's line matching has been great fun to watch, but even his relentless pursuit of match-ups isn't enough to keep the team's overall percentage when tied at 62%.
