Logical except for one point: you're suggesting the Leafs beating Boston would be better for us. Disagree there. We can beat either team, but the Bruins aren't as hell-bent on dirty play as the Leafs (ironic, but true). The 'hate' between Boston and Montreal has evolved into a cold-war detente, where there's more mutual respect than emotional outbursts (notwithstanding Marchand's babyish whining). Plus, I see the Bruins defence sagging and being more vulnerable to our forechecking style. Leafs, on the other hand, are still in their fetish stage about fighting and goons and simply being able to attend a playoff game without buying a ticket.
