I think in order to beat Boston the Habs have to show up with some physicality, in other words not just taking hits but handing them out also.
From listening to the media our team is full of guys 5'7" and 5'9" of Gionta and Cammy's size and their team is full of guys 6'2" of Lucic and Horton's size. Our big guys like AK, Moen, Eller, Gill, Subban, Mara, White and Darche have to play physical in the corners and drive the net.
we definitely need to use oursize and transition game to advantage as well as our superior PP, but it's not as much a big vs small matchup as the media would ahve you believe, overall our defense is bigger than theirs and their forwardsare a bit bigger but they still have a fair bit of smaller guys like Marchand(5'9" 180lbs) Krejci (5'11" 178lbs) Bergeron(190lbs) Recchi(5'10" 185lbs) Ference(5'10" 190lbs) and Kempher if he plays...
