A Look at Style of Play
The Bruins way of playing has been a huge reason for the downslide they are on. If you notice, teams with good offense's will not dump and run all the time, they have possession into the offensive zone which creates oppurtunities. The Bruins kept dumping it in literally giving the puck to Ottawa. When the Bruins do carry it in, they usually get a good chance and most of their goals on 5 v 5 start with posession into the offensive zone.
