No, I just think Chara and the B's are a bad match up for the canucks
Although I agree with you, that's when your coach comes into play. I mean it's not like the Bruins were the best matchup for us either. For me I see a VERY stubborn Vancouver team who just refusses to adjust to things.
Was going to post the same thing. Of course, we also play them a lot more, so that familiarity makes preparation and chalkboard sessions easier to plan. And since they've tried many different combinations against the various Bruins lines, it's quicker and easier to choose match-ups that you have confidence in.
I'm pretty sure the Canucks are the strongest team Boston has faced, except that every goaltended faced by Boston since escaping the Habs has completely fallen apart.
The Habs aren't THAT far off from the Canucks (Montreal is a very strong puck possession team) but the main difference is that their goaltending held up, whereas Boucher, Roloson and Luongo have all been dreadful.
