good job.
To a degree. However some of the actual answer to how the two teams, as constructed when they met, actually compare involves the unanswerable question of whether a better coach would diminish to difference, if not eliminate the difference. We all, even you I think, agree that Bylsma has a huge ugly blind spot that played right into Boston's wheel house. Bylsma refuses to adjust to teams who go all out defensively. Now if we had a coach, say a Scotty Bowman for instance, who could adjust would it make a difference? Certainly. Enough that we would have advanced past Boston? The is one of those hypotheticals you can not answer as it is just that, hypothetical.
