*** Winning 6 of seven games when dressing seven defensemen, Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma is being

secretive as to whether he will go with seven defensemen or dress 12 forwards in game 1 of the Finals.
All seven defensemen rotated in drills today. Bylsma is not scared to mess with a winning lineup but Boucher has grown into a leadership role in the locker room the past couple weeks.
Going to be interesting as to which direction he goes.
