The Habs are playing great on both ends of the ice, but I think the Bruins can slow them down by getting more hits in and creating second chance situations in front of the net. As you said, they are simply shooting the puck in on Price when he's ready and then he's covering up. They're also letting them dictate the pace of the game. They keep that style of play going and they'll be done in 4 or 5 games for sure.
History has shown in the past that Price breaks down if things do not go his way. He has been pulled and benched in the past and has always been known for having a fragile psyche. I think if the Bruins can go in there and win big, like 3-0 or 4-1 then the series will change a lot because Price can't be counted on to win the next game. His playoff history shows then when he has one bad game he goes on to have another bad game.
