They're not neanderthals, that's not what I was saying at all
Just, they were a team that didn't take any chances. They didn't forchek, cycle the puck,etc. They were just five guy waiting for the opposition to enter their zone. When they had their mistake they were fast to counter attack. Bruins always have difficulty against those team (see Tampa, Caps last year, Minnesota, etc.).
Now, Therrien make them forechek, try to make them more tough, etc. That means less of "wait and see approch with perfect defensive positionning" and I think it could somewhat help the B's.
