Taking two games off is the difference in the series so far.
Well it's good I'm getting to keep the tradition of disagreeing with almost every post on every subject that I've ever reed of yours in many years of lurking! Opposites attract?! ;-)
Boston are slightly superior in almost every department and have a lot more seriously big guys, where as we have our stars playing injured, our biggest D man injured, our veteran sniper injured, our pre-season #2 center still injured, Legwand who hasn't fit the system yet and half a line up with about 40 playoff games between them. Toss in having to play our 3rd hanger on th top line due a lack of size on the roster and we need to play to the max just to stay level.
It doesn't help that the refs are letting stuff go that has nothing to do with playing hard - spearing, interference cross-checks to the head, cross-checks after the whistle Etc. We'd love to see a Probert or McCarty out there returning the favour, but given the bruin's shameless diving and the stripes indulgence of it, I'm not sure it would help.
Of course, as we all know, this is making the Legwand trade look worse by the day....
