A little of both maybe? LOL Julien has sort of loosened the reins on his D this year, encouraging them to jump into the play more often. That is most obvious in the situation you described. The D has been much more active, but generally are picking good times to jump up, and the forwards are doing a good job recognizing it and covering for them etc.
Up front, Boston finally has the speed and skill to make plays in transition, so odd man rushes happen a bit more often this year than they have in the past few.
