Franson may have struggled with +/- down the stretch, but it sounds like that was his first chance to show what he could do with that level of increased responsibility and a new partner, and there’s always an adjustment period. In the playoffs, he had an even rating, six points, 33 hits and a 20% shooting percentage in seven games, and was one of the three stars of Game 7 with two goals and eight hits over 27 minutes of ice time against a -2 rating and ultimately losing the puck battle to the clutch Marchand on the overtime series clincher. A lot of growth in a short span.
You're forgetting the assist on the first Bruins goal of game seven
