Stats comaprison: the 2009-10 Bruins to now

The Boston Bruins have completed their 27th game of this 2010-11 NHL season, which marks their one-third completion of the year.

So, before they host the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at the TD Garden for Game 28, I decided to take a look back at the 2009-10 season — which ended so badly — and compare it, statistically, to this year’s club.

A few interesting notes below: Their man-games lost to injuries were cut in half; shorthanded goals-for have doubled; and home attendance is way up.
