2. Put the puck on net

This seems extremely simple, but the Boston Bruins had plenty of opportunities to score and were unable to take advantage. Frederik Andersen was on his stomach, facing the wrong way, and the Bruins were still unable to put the puck in the net.

The Bruins should use their big men to their advantage. Rick Nash, David Backes, and Tim Schaller should be posting up in front of Andersen, and taking advantage of the rebounds he gives up. The Maple Leafs don’t have a lot of great defenders so the Bruins should be able to score a good amount of goals doing this.

Also, the Bruins need to take advantage of wide open nets. David Pastrnak had a rough game on Monday, getting robbed by Andersen, and hitting the post a bunch of times. If these pucks move an inch they would probably be goals. So hopefully the Bruins got all of their posts out in game 3, and those shots will become goals in game 4.
