Would they be the difference? I mean really, it's skill and speed that got you guys this far. Do you abandon that plan right now and take an approach you really aren't geared for?
Lapierre is a guy who consistently gets under the other teams skin, he's the Habs pest and is good at what he does. As a Bruins fan I wanted to see him dead every night, which means he was doing what he was supposed to.
I think the biggest issue for Montreal was running directly into the Flyers right after a hard fought series with the Bruins. You couldn't have run into two teams geared better to wear opponents down. Had you of met Pittsburgh in the second round, or someone else in the first it likely wouldn't have been a big issue.
