Someone has turned off the power in the conference finals in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Through two rounds and 71 games, teams were converting on exactly 18 percent of their power-play chances, helping to keep the average goals per game over five (5.26 through 48 games in the first round, 5.08 through round two).
But the four teams battling for a berth in the Stanley Cup Final have done next to nothing with the extra man so far.
In the Eastern Conference Final, the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins have combined to go scoreless in 22 power-play chances. That's especially damaging for the Penguins, who during the regular season ranked second in the League with the man advantage and led all playoff teams in power-play goals and percentage coming into this round.
