Think it this way...

A very exciting game: 6-5 game > 2-1 game. Think about the 1987 series between Canada vs Russia where all 3 games ended 6-5.

A boring game: 6-5 game > 2-1 game. I've seen some very boring defensive games ended 1-0, 2-0. I've wished that they could score a bit more so I could cheer and scream.

1. Make the game flowing better, i.e. less stoppages, off-sides, etc.
2. More goals
A 1-0 game with 20 scoring chances >>>>> 6-5 game with 11 scoring chances.

A 6-5 game with 30 chances >>> 2-3 game with 10 chances.

Scoring chances are what people like. Yes make the game flow better with less stoppages and while doing so scoring chances will rise
