The Bruins are very good--they are also very tough. It's part of their DNA. The Rangers can be very good--but they're not very tough. It's an advantage for the Bruins when the two teams meet up. It's one reason why they knocked us out of the playoffs last year. There are other reasons such as they've got three great point shots--Chara, Boychuk and Krug to our 0. They have a much better 4th line--one that's been playing together for a while. They look more like a team--players that mesh together better than ours do. Rangers have a problem with Lucic setting up in front of our net. Falk gave him a good shot today but--that's been an ongoing problem for a while. They've got 5 guys (who can all play) who can drop the gloves--Lucic, Chara, McQuaid, Thornton and Campbell. We have one guy Dorsett who is smaller than all of them and maybe Falk who's not in the lineup all the time.
