It is a system adjustment or did these guys just forget how to win a board battle over the past 1.5 seasons?
The opposing team knows every single little intricacy of Byslma's defensive scheme. They know that the first defenseman back will try to chip the puck to his partner, or blindly throw a pass up the boards.
It's up to Bylsma to adjust, and up until now he hasn't. It's pretty arrogant if you ask me.
