Yeah ok so I didn't put anything up post-game on halloween or the morning after but I was not alone in that. Either way, The Bruins played twice over the weekend, both were afternoon games. The Bruins are playing a league-high 19 afternoon games this season, or about %23. This annoys me greatly, it always throws me off when I get out of a game and it's still light out. Thankfully winter and the end of daylight savings time will take care of that whole "daylight" thing.
I could recap the two excellent goals between Vladimir Sobotka and Blake Wheeler, where Sobotka fought behind the net for about a million years until popping it out for Wheeler to tap it in, or the one where Wheeler set Sobotka up nicely, or I could talk about how the Bruins-Rangers game would still be going on if this were the playoffs and Gaborik wasn't on the Rangers or I could look at some statistics, which is probably much* more interesting.
So lets look at some thing then, shall we?
In case you were wondering, it's not the worst powerplay in the league. It's just the second-worst. The panthers are worse but they're the panthers, not last year's 4th-best PP. (Note: last year's worst PP was the Columbus Bluejackets and they made the playoffs anyways) Of course the fact that we're missing Savard and Kessel hurts in that respect, so there you go.
Yeesh, time flies when you're having fun. I will be using historical events to explain the Bruins PP% for a while I think. For example, the league-leading Flyers have a 28.07% PP, or FLYING CARS MOTHERFUCKERS in historical reference.
