I don't know whether it did, but that collapse happened with him as the coach.
Or it could be that Ovy missed an early breakaway that killed the momentum, that the starting goalie was a rookie with less than 20 games of NHL experience, or that half the defense was Jurcina, Morrisonn, and Pothier (plus Erskine). Who knows? They lost, and it's a completely different team makeup now.

The point is, people are using a game that happened 3 freaking seasons ago to bash Boudreau now, among other criticisms that don't even apply anymore. It's the epitome of ridiculous.
