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.

I agree. I think the dump and chase strategy require speed. I don't think that Mowers/Hoggan can be tagged as fast skaters. Without that speed, you simply give the puck to the opponents. I think Lewis should give more space to the offensive side of his team. He should put on ice peoples who can spark the offense.

I have nothing against Mowers, Donovan,Hoggan and Primeau but when you have tough time to score, you need to reduce the ice time of those guys. I can understand that Chistov and Tenkrat might not have their best games lately but, al least, they close the deal. How many chances have been lost because Donovan, Hoggan or Mowers cannot seal the deal. Those missing opportunities will catch you and cost you games. That's exactly what happend in the last couple of games...
