Playoff Scoring: Nothing to worry about
As usual, people are already overreacting over the lack of goals in the three playoff games so far. Relax. The system we have now is finally a good one, which provides more drama and is better scheduling/attendance purposes. Playoff games are usually lower scoring than regular season games; all time the playoffs average 0.17 fewer goals per game. And in the two years we've had the current system, the playoffs have actually had more goals per game than the regular season. Nothing to worry about.
