We just didn't give up that many goals.
We were solid throughout? We played .500 hockey from the beginning of February through the playoffs. Not what I call solid throughout.
I specifically chose Bergeron because he plays on a very similar team to us. We had Hank, McDonagh, Girardi, Del Zotto and a half a season of Sauer and half a season of half of Staal. They had Thomas, Chara, Seidenburg, Ference and Boychuk. Their goaltending and top 4 D was just as good as ours. The Bruins gave 1/5 of a goal per game more than we did. Hardly justifies your statement.
