So, you think a drop pass at the opposing teams blue line with the defense well organized in front of you (and your teammates are not expecting a drop pass) increased the probability of a goal for there?
However, I'll play along. Lets say the drop pass improved the chance of the Flyers scoring on that rush by 1% (I think that's generous). It improved the chance of a goal against by about 99%... as a turnover there pretty much guaranteed a goal against if the Bruins hit the net.
