We gave up 19 shots in the 1st period of game 3. Just saying ...

All three.

I think Bylsma almost has the team so focused on playing as fast and north-south as possible that guys are making mistakes. They're not playing smart. This hasn't be corrected.

Fleury also hasn't really made a big save all series. 18 goals in 8 periods plus half an OT is inexcusable, regardless of how many chances a team has given up.

Aside from Letang, the D Corps are playing to avoid making mistakes rather than playing to win. That's not good in the playoffs. I'm not one to quote Therrien, but I've never seen a defense soff like dis. I'm actually dead serious. They're not winners. They're afraid when the puck comes to them. They're afraid to battle in the corners. I'm still giving them a chance to turn it around, but I have a feeling that the reason that we end up winning won't be because our defense fearlessly led us into battle.

There is enough blame to go around, but at the same time....

I blame DB squarely first and foremost....
What changes has he made to fix what isn't working?

At a minimum adjust line combinations....

The biggest issue is he let the team get away from him in game 3. The initial scrum, fine....but it should have ended there and the team should have been coached to show it on the scoreboard instead of the penalty box.
