306, row 14
20 games in. The Bruins have scored more than 2 goals in regulation only 8 times. 4 of which came when they were down 2-0, 3-0. 3-0 and 3-1 in the 3rd period and has to throw caution into the wind.

This is a big problem. They are suffocating defensively but I think it has come at too much of a cost on the other end.

I think I've seen mention (either by cassidy or an observer) that forwards are coming back deeper (than last year) to help the play starting out from the back. I would assume that affects how well those same forwards can also get into scoring position?
