Simple.

If you watched the Bruins vs the Canucks in the Stanley Cup Finals, you would have noticed that the Bruins played a very high pressure and aggressive style of defense.

And, if you remember the Canadiens in the playoffs, they played a very passive defense with a default of having all 5 players on the ice sagging toward Price.

There was no comparison between the two styles of defense emplyed by Martin and Julien. And obviously one was a little more successful.
