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.
Offensively, Boston's D crushes the Rangers D. Defensively, the Rangers D is better.

MDZ excelled at neither end of the rink.
