Boston's regular season PP was 16.2 last year, their pk was 82.6 percent.

Our power play is 1.42, and our PK is 86.7 percent.

We score 2.72 goals per game and allow 2.03 against.

Boston last year scored 2.98 for and allowed 2.3 against.

Fact of the matter is each season you can find a million and one reasons why each team "can't win the cup." Fact of the matter is every new cup winning team breaks a trend of one kind or another. We can't as an organization just work on eliminating every possible historical reason why we might not win the cup.
The only trend I see with Boston last year was that much like the Reg. Season, they were the best even strength scoring post season team by a wide margin. That even strength scoring completely eliminated the need for an effective PP.

during the Reg. Season they scored a league best 177 goals at 5 on 5. In the Playoffs they scored a whopping 60 at 5 on 5. Vancouver (which played the same number of games) was a massive 24 goals behind the pace.
