Consistency, or a lack thereof, seems to be the biggest issue. Wins are almost always followed up with losses and, just one game after the victory over Philly — a game in which the B’s said their offense was finally “starting to connect” — they failed to put a single puck past Thomas Greiss.
Despite all this, Boston still sits in reasonably good shape standings-wise.
