The only thing I'm worried about is Bylsma's insistence to not get matchups. You are at home, get Crosby and Malkin away from Bergeron or Chara and out against Krug as much as possible.
Instead he puts Crosby against Bergeron all night and does nothing to keep either away from Chara.
I shudder to think of how often they'll see Chara once the Bruins get last change.
You do realize that how much ice time Chara is logging in these playoffs. If Bylsma would follow your idea then Crosby and Malkin might see about ten mins of ice time. Chara is out there a lot more than he isn't. They are going to have to fight through those battles.
I'm also not saying that his lack of matchups lost us the game, but it certainly makes the games easier to win when you at least get some good matchups.
There's a game within the game that needs to be addressed too.
I still loved our chances and the chances we held them to for the most part.
