Lindy Ruff discusses trends in NHL


‘You can see a lot of teams that you think should be scoring, aren’t scoring. There are teams that I wouldn’t think would score a lot that are scoring some goals, but there are a lot of good teams having a tough time putting consistent numbers up. The numbers are down. That speaks for itself. Goal scoring is around five right now, which is down again from last year. If you’re going to blame it anywhere you can blame it on coaches and goaltending [which] is very good in this league.’
