Breaking down the Bruins PP

What is the real problem? Is it personnel, game plan, or bad luck? If it's a combination, which one is most to blame.
Breaking it down further...
how do you feel about breakout...
offensive zone entry...
in zone set-up...
What are your Bruins two units?
I don't have stats, but I would love to know how many "golden" opportunities (shots vs. quality shots) do the B's get per powerplay as compared to other teams. This would help with the "luck" factor.
I would also like to know more about 5-on-3 chances as teams get inflated PP stats due to simply having more 5-on-3 chances than other teams.
For example, if the B's had 9 five-on-three chances and scored on 6 of them, would the powerplay be an isssue as their overall pp percentage would skyrocket?

Luc, I feel it starts out with a slow breakout which in turn, leads to poor entry or dump ins. They need to find ways to create more speed through the neutral zone.
