The key to the Bruins success so far has been their timely scoring (including goals from the point by Boychuk and Krug), faceoff prowess (especially Bergeron's), goaltending, and tight defense (although it broke down in game 4 against the Hawks, when Chara was on for 4 GA). I should also remind you that the Habs won the season series against the Bruins using their speed and forechecking. (The Hawks are also speedy. by the way.) And remember, the Hawks haven't been getting remarkable goaltending from Crawford.
Sure, the Habs could use more physicality. They also need better playmaking and D. I hope having Emelin, Tinordi, and Beaulieu in the lineup will solve at least part of the problem.
Regarding what I highlighted, you are not correct.
The hits so far in the four games are.....
Boston - 184
Chicago - 157
Maybe when a Hawks player makes a hit, it is more noticeable since they are spending more time dodging the Bruins attempts to hit them.
