Win or lose, Montreal rarely gets out-hit, out-played, out-muscled or out-anything by Boston. I can't remember a game against them that was decided by intimidation.

That said, I agree that White is in, Armstrong is out.
Thanks. I personally think the Chara hit on Pacioretty and the game that followed it (I think we lost it 5-1 at the time) helped Boston quite a bit mentally. At the time, our players decided to give up, and Boston showed character through adversity. We didn't respect ourselves, and let's get real, without Cammalleri's 10 points in 7 games and Price great first games, we didn't control that series.

But I can see where you're coming from and I respect your opinion. I just have another point of view on how we have to stand up for ourselves. We can't let the Bruins hit Markov, Pacioretty and Subban and not react.
