The Devils defense last yr had one physical guy in Volchenkov and one shot blocking expert in Salvador. Greene/Fayne/Harrold/Zidlicky all effectively moved the puck out, neutralizing our forecheck. The Habs have a very similar defense to the Devils, except Subban is playing the best hockey of his career and is a Norris favorite.
Yep. The difference is that Markov and Kaberle can't skate anymore. Both are VERY slow. I was watching a Habs game and the Bruins just kept dumping it into Markov's corner and kept beating him to the puck. Pierre was mentioning it over and over again how they had to insulate him.
