Boston is balanced. Thats what makes their team so good. They have enough skill to win that style of game and more than enough grit to grind it out.
I think everyone agrees that Boston has grit and it's part of their game, but that's not why they're beating Montreal in this series. Montreal has matched and beaten them at the physical game, but not on the scoreboard. The reason they're being outscored is because of all of the Habs injuries to key players including 4 defensemen, a top line winger and their 2nd line centre the Bruins simply have more skill and depth that the Habs simply cannot match at this time. That's just a fact of the matter.

Edit: Look at Boston's execution and passing. Their passes are crisp and their transition game is superior to ours. They're also a very healthy lineup as well. No key injuries.
