Here is my theory on the road stuggles. To me it is as simple as special teams play. The Pats are great at home and not so great on the road.
Power Play - home .205, away .157
penalty kill - home .859, away .816
We talked about inconsistant play, here is were they have been the most inconsistant.
I think that if the Pats want to be successful on the road, they have to pick up the speciality teams play. They need to get the PP up to .18 and the PK to around .82.
