Questions is...why?...what were they missing?
My answers would be:
-Coach's game plan with leads was flawed...instead of being so defensively oriented we should of kept the pressure on the Bruins by keeping the puck in their end with stronger offense game plan.
Did you even watch that game??
The turning point was the second Boston goal and it came because the Habs were TOO AGGRESSIVE and pinched unwisely/badly.
But just like there are those who say "they are too small" as a response to any event, there are those who cry "they play too passively" at any time.
By the way, do you realize that the Habs held onto all of their other leads in that series using a slightly conservative but effective style? They still had plenty of shots and chances, about even with Boston over the 7 games.
You can't expect the Habs' defence to pinch like Vancouver's, they are slower than the Canucks. Besides, how did Vancouver's strategy work out over the 7 games compared to Montreal's? Who gave up a ton more goals, and also scored less?
