kid has been playing hard, Chicago's forecheck with fast big forwards was giving all the Bruins' defencmen some troubles at times, hate to see the rookie getting crapped on for a mistake or two when his compete level was top notch the whole game
When a coach sits a guy out for a few shifts it's not him crapping on the player. He's a rookie and he needed to settle down a bit, his very next shift he iced the puck and sat for a bit longer. He's a good player, but sometimes you have to sit a rookie out for a few shifts if the nerves are getting to him. It's for from getting crapped on, as you can tell by him still getting shifts in the 3rd OT.
