Bruins want to improve powerplay
TheFourthPeriod.com

Bruins president Cam Neely acknowledged that his team needs its powerplay to be better next season in order to take steps towards another championship, the Boston Globe reports.

"I watch a lot of other hockey and a lot of other power plays," Neely told the paper. "What I see is a lot of movement, getting pucks down low, getting them to the net.

"I think that's important, but . . . a lot of movement. Make it more difficult for the penalty killers. That's an area, when I look at good power plays, that's what I see is coming out of it."

The Globe notes the loss of Marc Savard has affected the team's powerplay, as the veteran center use to quarterback the man-advantage before he suffered what appears to be a career-ending concussion.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli could look outside of the organization for help at the point, or the team could shift Tyler Seguin into that role; it's still too early to tell what direction the team wants to go in.
