Game 2 Boston scored 3 PP goals because of skill and puck movement starting from their back end. Montreal can't come close to matching that as their PP is dismal without their most skilled defensemen out of the lineup. Game one was won on a PP goal and that was the difference. Skill and depth of skill is their advantage and we look lost without key players particularly on special teams.

Edit: Also let's flip the situation for each of these teams. Imagine Montreal with Lang, Markov, Tanguay, and Schneider. And, now imagine, in addition to that, Boston without Chara, Wideman, Bergeron, and Kessel. What a difference that would be and on paper you'd really think Montreal could do well against the B's or better.
the aren't JUST out skilling Montreal, they are dominating them in every aspect of the game. Puck control, in front nets, along the boards etc etc, thats just not skill that is physicality, grit, strength, and determination.

How many different ways does it take. Its not coming solely to Bostons skill. Hell even there speeds better than Montreal but according to you its just skill which is absolute *********.

just because Boston has more skill because Montreal injuries doesn't make Boston winning the series by simply out skilling Montreal by default.
