I love that fourth line. I was skeptical of Moen lining up beside Briere and Weise, but the line paid off in the second connecting for a nice Dale Weise goal - his second of the playoffs. Former fourth liner Michael Bournival added a great deal of speed to Montreal's second line and one could almost hear Pierre Gauthier weep as Bournival skated alongside an uninjured Vanek and Plekanec.
The Bruins matched the Habs' team speed through the first two games, but seemed to be as slow as a Douglas Murray-Hal Gill duo in the third game. I like seeing a game where a team with size is forced to play a speed game and is outmatched. Too often fans and talking heads stress that Montreal needs size. Nice to see that conversation negated somewhat. The one line that I'm truly scared of with the Bruins is the line that best combines speed and skill - Marchand, Bergeron, and Smith. Gotta shut down those jokers.
This game obviously isn't over, as evidenced by the Bruins' late goal, and the third period looms, but through the first two periods Montreal looked solid.
