meh all these stats about how BOS is a better team. They are certainly better against the rest of the NHL than we are but they aren't playing the rest of the NHL. They are playing MTL, a team they are 3-9 against in their last 12 on top of the other numbers in the rivalry.

They match up horribly with us. They can't handle a speedy transition team and their offense is largely based of a forecheck that is nullified by how well Price plays the puck on dump ins. Their special teams are weak and they are a fragile team mentally. Their team is devoid of leadership or proven playoff performers (does anyone believe Horton is going to go nuts in his first ever playoff..Kaberle after 7 years? these guys are born losers) and their coach is unable to match other NHL coaches over a 7 game series.

They may get past us but we are the worst possible matchup for them. They play horribly against us from the goalie on out. I don't know why, maybe its the rivalry or maybe its the bell centre but the only way I see them winning is if everything goes right for them right off the hop (first goal, first game, both at home, etc) because the first sign that things might not be going their way and they'll fold like a cheap suit.

Habs in 6.
