This team sucks on the boards. That's one area if you are not good at, then your play in your own zone suffers hence the atrocious penalty kill.

Boston is amazing at playing at boards and they use it to their advantage. Last year, the main reason Toronto had a winning record against Boston was due to KGM line where Kulemin was a beast at the boards. This time Kulemin regressed therefore we get blown out whenever we play Boston.

My second point is that we have no legit defensive players. Schenn is but he is making mistakes. Our best penalty killers would be sparingly on top PK units because defense is not their main forte.

I personally blame Burke for our issues in penalty killing. He thought Kulemin wouldn't regress but it backfired.
