If the Habs are to compete they have to attack the Bruins rather than try and skirt around them, avoiding hits. This is the playoffs where sacrificing the body to make a play is expected – and someone should have told Breezer that on the Bruins second goal.

Most importantly, we have to have some discipline next game. That’s critical.
Guy, I think that we can analyse the Canadien's performance to death but what it really comes down to is that the team has to improve significantly in two key aspects of the game, namely intensity and discipline (which you have touched on above). If they can show big time improvement in these two areas then chances are good for positive outcomes.
