Skate, score, let them take penalties. Julien deserved a fine for putting out the goons with under five minutes left last game, and I have no doubt whatsoever that Boston getting away with the garbage it did last time they played the habs was a direct contributor to the nonsense that ensued between the Islanders and Pens a couple of days later.
My guess is Boston doesn't goon it up at all, but if they do, it'll be interesting to see if the refs and/or league respond. Is the "new" NHL really a thing of the past? Does the league want to see more teams like the Islanders and more concussions to players like Crosby? This game is a situation where Boston could get itself into trouble they don't need. The smart thing for both teams to do is simply try and win the game.
