Maybe I'm reading Flycoon wrong, but he's not calling the assertion that the game is called differently in the playoffs "nonsense". He's agreeing that it's called differently with different rules from the reg. season and the fact that it is, is nonsense.

Sorry Derek, should’ve added the sarcasm emoji. Think they added a few players that also made a difference. They (coaching) also adapted well their game to the playoffs.

I believe I saw a video of one of my fav hockey movies--(thanks GP) and Brook's comment is "I'm not picking the best players, I'm picking the right players". We had a lot of the best players, just not enough of the right players.
