Heading into tonight's do or die game 7 I looked into a couple of Bruins' statistics. Be forewarned, they aren't very pretty.
RECORD IN APRIL- After being almost unstoppable from December to March, the Bruins are 4-7 for the month of April. During that time they have scored the exact same number of goals as their opponents, 33. After outscoring the Leafs 12-4 in the first 2 playoff games, Toronto has turned the tables by outscoring the Bruins 12-9.
POWERPLAY- The Bruins' powerplay was on fire heading into the playoffs. In their last 21 regular season games they scored on 24 of 70 opportunities (34.3%). When the playoffs commenced the Bs had a power surge with an impressive success rate of 50% in both games 1 (3/6) and 2 (2/4). Since then they've been lights out, as in an almost blackout. In their 9 most recent powerplay opportunities, Boston has only scored once. Since one of those powerplays wasactually a 5 on 3, it's really worse than 11%.
