Not me.

CJ`s TO timing has been great in the last few games too.
Indeed.

Furthermore, they spent far less time in their own zone, and forechecked aggressively, they were going for it. Which was my biggest complaint in the 4 losses in the flyers series. They've also become more and more physical as the series has gone on, especially in their end, which is key.

Therefore full props, Coach Julien. And that's coming from someone who had lost all faith.
