If you think it's the Bruins who are tired, then you aren't paying attention.

Pretty sure Chara was playing hurt. Seems like the game 5 blowout in Boston was all they had left in the tank. I'll be honest, I really though Montreal were done like dinner after that game, the Bruins were absolutely dominant in game 5, especially their D. They just couldn't keep up the intensity after that. Great series, as always when it's Habs vs Bruins, too bad Lucic couldn't find it within himself to be a little graceful in defeat.
I'm not sure what was going on with Lucic. There has to be more to the story than we are hearing. And frankly, we shouldn't be hearing about it at all.
I am not referring to this series, but I am actually surprised there are no fights during the handshake part of the playoffs. You've been kicking the snot out of each other for all the games, with tons of trash talk and sometimes marginal hits. The game ends and the adrenaline has to still be pumping. I half expect the closing scene in Slapshot.
Bruins aren't a rival. Besides, we won our first Cup against them and also had one of the best comebacks in playoff hockey history as well.
The Rangers aren't that fast. Kreider, I guess. That's about it.
The Rangers have Henrik Lundquist, though. And a D that's underrated slightly.
Habs should win.
