Is he the only forward who turns the puck over? When the B's send the puck up the boards, you have a pinching Dman right on our wing, w/ a backchecking forward taking away the seam nearly boxing them in. Paille coughed it up all night, Peverley, everyone. Half the time their only play is back to a Dman. Who find another way to cough it up. Like aerial passes against the boards no bruin has any chance of controlling.

Worse is when they reverse it hard around the opposite boards. As our wings standing in the box at the circle have even less chance to get to that puck before a pinching Dman does. Our turnovers go above and beyond Lucic. But hey, win a cup and you get pink hats flowing in here w/ all the answers.

This has been going on for some time and since PC failed to address this by bringing in a puck moving defenseman are forwards come playoff time, if were going to have any success are going to be counted on to go back in their own end and lug the puck up the ice.

Thats Seguin, Jagr, Kelly, Marchand, and Peverly, even Bergy and Krejci guys with speed or as in Jagr's case exceptional one on one skill. Maybe this is why PC has loaded up with depth offensively as there's going to be a need for it. I'm sure PC tried to get another top 4 d-man but other teams aren't so willing to give them up and in his defense this is the next best thing as that and Tim Thomas was successfull in 2011.
