I think they can handle it unless you mean some stupid maneuver like Lucic pulled. If Game 1 was any indication, the Bruins physicality isn't going to throw the Red Wings off their game. My point was Lucic or Marchand would be offended if one of their skilled guys got Kronwalled by a clean check, yet Lucic has the audacity to spear someone in the junk for no good reason.
Not sure what the Wings have to do with Nashville either.
How has that muscle done containing that speed and skill through five meetings so far this season?
Regular season is behind us and we won the Presidents Trophy while others just made the playoffs by the skin of their teeth 2 years in a row. Now you're about to see what will happen to you in the 1st round, like you guys have done to Nashville. We were down 0-2 to the Habs in 2011 and won that series...we went 7 games with Tampon Bay and won that series...we went 7 against the Canucks and won the Cup. So I'm not worried about home ice advantage. We ran the tables then and we'll do it this time.
