Remember back during the 2010-11 season when Boston was beating the Habs late in the game 2-0. The Habs stormed back & won in O.T. This was (the movie goer's push on Chara). Now, I don't know if this was the same game that CJ also decided to scratch Seguin from the lineup. There was an interview was Mazz & ??? with Cam & anyone who heard it could tell he was pissed off about the decision. At that time CJ was a totally different coach, He wouldn't use his timeouts, he played the 4th line in a 1 goal game with 2 minutes left. And he rarely adjusted on the fly during a game.
Now, we all know CJ by now & he's pretty set in his ways. When he believes in something he sticks with it. So, I'm wondering if Neely had a talk with Peter & he had a talk with Claude. Or did Neely talk to both of them? Or, did CJ just change on his own accord?
This team at times in the past seemed so robotic and just seemed they had no emotion & were content on just "playing the system". Something happened along the way though. The coaching staff is the same, but the style has changed in a lot of different ways. They'll call a timeout after a tough shift they ice the puck even if it's early in the 2nd period. They changed players around & put them on different lines, but smartly stick with the current lineup & don't panic. And most importantly he's not putting the Thornton's & Daugavins out there late, or at all in the 3rd period. What do you think is the reasoning behind this?
I'm making a legit hockey thread about the Bruins.
