Goaltending and talent had nothing to do with the Kings' success. It was all size. The Bruins were ousted in the first round in 2012 because they faced giants. They narrowly escaped being upset in the first round in 2011 because the Habs brutalized them. Darn, it should have occurred to me that the Habs' emphasis on speed was a delusion.
