Ask any forward who is streaking down Chara's side if he's intimidating. The Bergeron line are all under 200lbs. When was that ever a problem before the last couple of days? Kelly and Pevs are staples on the third line. When was their size an issue?

It hasn't been an issue IMO. They'll come out against the Leafs and play good, hard-nosed hockey. They'll take the body and be physical, just like they always do when they're playing well.
