Maybe I'm approaching this the wrong way, but 13 all season doesn't strike me as terrible.
You have 246 minutes all season played under that condition -- the last minute of a period (3x82). That's the equivalent of about four games. They allowed a little less than three goals a game -- so you'd expect to see about 11 goals scored in those four hypothetical games.
The argument can be made that there's more emphasis on preventing a goal in the final minute, I guess.
