Mixed feelings about this.

I've got a crazy hunch that maybe we're going about Boston the wrong way here.

Neil is a big part of the team, but at the same time, Ottawa's biggest faux pas against Boston is focusing too much on playing the physical game against them.

Look at the playoffs last year and regular season this year: Montreal played non-physical and took Boston to 7 games. Same with Vancouver. Carolina doesn't hit squat and won all their games against the Bruins this season.

Maybe our best bet against Boston is to forget about the Konopkas and focus on using our team speed. Besides, after all the concussion talk and stars going out with every injury in the book, I'd be willing to bet Boston will get a helluva lot more calls against them in this year's playoffs compared to last season. I mean, it's been, what, 2-3 months since the last rule/reffing change? About due for another reffing about-face.
