Yes they scored but it was a great shot by Boyle. Why are the Sharks the only team that doesn't seem to understand you should either spread it out or clog up the front?
The reason why they position themselves off to the side in that situation is to have an outlet down low for the point guy to go to. Clogging the net isn't always the best solution if you want to get the puck through and spreading it out gives the defense time as well when you move the puck. And they aren't the only team that does that.
