I've been watching Chicago play all playoffs and it's always been exciting hockey. But any game which includes Boston immediately becomes excruciatingly boring and slow. I would really hate having to watch them all season long.
Boring and slow?
Boston is not boring and slow. They execute the give and go better than any team in the NHL.
And very seldom do you see an odd man rush against them.......because they are not slow.
This is aggressive hockey. Hockey that gets a team to the Stanley Cup.
Bruins going to roll Chicago about as easily as they did Pittsburgh. All of the players have bought into the system of aggressiveness and attack attack attack, offense or defense.
I don't get why teams don't play to their strengths instead of trying to out play Boston at Boston's game.
Chicago plays that style all the time. They always dish out the body. Shaw and Bolland always talk trash, Seabrook always looks for the hit. Same for Bickell. Not sure why people are saying the Hawks are trying to play like Boston.
They came out and finished their checks like any home team tries to do on any given night.
