3

3 is always an important number to me in hockey.  3 is the middle number for both goals per game and goals allowed per game.  If you allow less than 3 goals per game on average, you should win.  If you score more than 3, you should win.  These numbers may be off by one or so, but I think they are accurate.

The Bruins record when scoring 3 or more goals:  7-1

The Bruins record when scoring less than 3 goals:  1-11

The Bruins record when allowing less than 3 goals: 5-6

The Bruins record when allowing 3 or more goals: 1-8

The Bruins record when scoring 3 or more goals, and allowing 3 or more goals: 1-1

The Bruins record when scoring 3 or more goals, and allowing less than 3 goals: 6-0

The Bruins record when scoring less than 3 goals, and allowing less than 3 goals: 1-5

The Bruins record when scoring less than 3 goals, and allowing 3 or more goals: 0-6

The Bruins overall record is 8-12.

As you can see, based on these stats, the offense is the issue.  A 5-6 record when allowing less than 3 goals is ridiculous, that record should be at least 8-3.  When this team scores, it wins, as seen with a 7-1 (could be 8-0), record when scoring 3 or more goals in a game.  The sad thing is, in 20 games, only 8 times have they scoring 3 or more goals, and that is including shootout wins, so it’s more like 7, and only 4 times, including shootouts, they have scored 4 or more goals.  6 of their losses have been by 1 goal.  Say what you want about this team, unless someone emerges as a consistent scorer, which this team does not have, then this season is going nowhere.

    That 2-6 stat can’t be right. Just off the top of my head i remember 2 shutouts oilers & pens and 4-2 over buffalo 7-2 over canes?

  3. goosegoose says:

    um any team who scores more than 3 goals and allows less than 3 goals will not lose…no need for that stat

      yeah but i think the bruins main problem is that the bruins are an abysmal 0-6 when scoring less than 3 and allowing more than 3. thats got to change lol

    “The Bruins record when scoring 3 or more goals, and allowing less than 3 goals: 6-0”
