Puck location/Zone time for Game 1: Bruins vs. Penguins

Salutations, Stanley Cup of Chowder! I come in peace to share my findings regarding zone time for game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Due to boredom/free time, I decided to look at how long the puck was in each zone for the game. Also, I compared that to each player's shifts to see where the puck was when a specific player was on the ice.

Methodology
Using the game clock from the CBC feed, I recorded whenever the puck switched zones to measure how long the puck was in the Bruins' zone, the neutral zone, and the Penguins' zone. Due to the impreciseness of my methods, the following numbers are approximate.

Interpreting the numbers
For each player, the numbers are percentages that represent how much of a player's ice time the puck was in a particular zone. For example, for 46% of the time Gregory Campbell was on the ice, the puck was in the Bruins' zone. Also, just looking at Campbell's even strength ice time, the puck was in the Bruins' zone 45% of the time. The 'Team' row describes where the puck was for the entire game, followed by a period-by-period breakdown.

The 3 colored bars represent the length of time the puck spent in each zone. Red represents the defensive zone, gray the neutral zone, and blue the offensive zone. The longer the colored bar, the longer the puck was in that particular zone.
