The culprit? Coaching. Yes, coaching. I know it's everyone's go-to factor, but I've been on Tortorella for the lack of usage of the blueline's speed since the beginning of the season. He was terrible with the defense offensively. Do you honestly think Boston's blueline is that much more offensively capable than the Rangers? If you do, you're being overly negative.
it was definitely coaching, but not about our lack of offense from our d, but more about their offense from their D.

we collapse everything down low and give the points away for free. Krug was just wailing away at one timers. Its a dumb strategy to use because it just locks you in your own zone unles syou can block the shot, have the puck in front of you, and skate it out.

never was a fan of that mentality.
