He seems to be wearing down and this is quite normal as he's usually a fire ball on the ice.

the main problem is more Rivest than Bouillon ,When Markov played wioth him , he was playing poorly and slowly have loose his confidence .Bouillon was not bad at all at that time , so Julien 've decided to play him with Rivest .

Since that time , Rivest is playing a better hockey , and i think that Bouillon is not a stranger to that ;his intensity is reflecting the game of Rivest .

But if Bouillon help Rivest to find his game ,we can't say the same from rivest about Bouillon .And as you said before , + 20 minutes minutes is too much for him ;and by the way , we also have to considere that Bouillon is adjusting his play for the NHL .May be he's 28 , but he until now he was a AHL player , so , it 's normal for him to makes mistakes sometime...
