Through 6 games, some more fun with small sample sizes:

- Zdeno Chara and Joe Haggerty's pick for Norris Finalist Dennis Seidenberg have combined for 1 point.

- In fact, the Bruins have yet to score a single goal from any defenseman.

- In terms of Points Per Game, the Bruins defensive leader is.... Adam McQuaid (3 games , 2 points).

- Last year's top 4 scorers (Krejci, Lucic, Bergeron, and Horton) have combined for 2 goals and 4 assists.

- Which is exactly the same point total as Chris Kelly, Daniel Paille, McQuaid, and Johnny Boychuk have combined for.

- Nathan Horton had more penalty minutes than shots on goal even before last night's meltdown (6 PIM vs. 5 S).

- Seguin has yet to be credited with a hit this season. Which means he only needs two more to catch Horton.

- Prior to Peverley's goal in the 3rd period, the Bruins had scored the exact same number of shorthanded goals as they had on the power play (1).

- Tyler Seguin is 8th amongst active players (with more than 5 attempts) in Shooutout percentage (55.6%). The next highest Bruin(s) with that many attempts are Chara and Krejci (at 30%).

- The Bruins are 3rd in the league in faceoff percentage at 54.2%.

- The Bruins have 1 goal in the 1st period all season, and have been outscored 4-1 in that period overall.

- That goal, by Brad Marchand, came in the season opener.

- After 6 games, the Bruins are dead last in the NHL in goals per game (1.67). This despite being 5th in shots on goal. If you believe that shots for are a better indication of future goal scoring success than even goals for, the drought should end soon.

- The Bruins scored 4 goals against Mathieu Garon in their only regulation win this season. In the other 5 games against starting netminders, they've scored 6.
