Scoring in 2013: Up for Men (Rule Changes?), Down for Women

The reactions to the rule changes in men's lacrosse for 2013 have largely been very positive, and both TV commentators and casual fans have noted improvements in the flow/pace of play. Did the changes affect scoring? It appears that may be the case. The situation was reversed in women's lacrosse, where average goals/game dropped in all three divisions.
