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.
knowing what we know now, you would think there might be some revision upward to boudreau's playoff coaching. jurcina, morrisonn, pothier and erskine? two of them went out of the league almost immediately upon leaving the team. one is a 7 in washington and the other plays on a last place team. yet, its boudreau's fault that they lost. you could make a case that they made it to the 7th game of a series vs the eventual cup winners with that defense was a brilliant effort....instead its considered a choke job.
