from Stephen Brunt of the Globe and Mail,
Praise the Boston head coach, but praise the Boston players as well, of course, for scrapping back in this series after seeming a bit shell-shocked in game one, the 12th of 13 consecutive losses to the Canadiens dating back to last season.
They have been in every minute since, and could have considered themselves unlucky not to have come away with another win. Though as an eighth seed going up against a one, returning to the loudest, most intimidating building in the league, there was also every reason to surrender to the inevitable.
There was every reason to surrender a whole bunch of times this year, with terrible injuries and an obvious deficit in scoring talent, during phases of the schedule when it seemed Boston was everyone’s favourite candidate to cough up a playoff spot.
