The Bruins may have been outshot 34-28 (19-4 in the first period), but came away with the edge in hits (50-34), thanks to Milan Lucic.

On "Postgame Live," Tony Amonte said the Bruins did a good job at preventing Blackhawks players from skating up the ice to create scoring chances, and credited Lucic for helping set the tone for physical play.

"Wearing down the Chicago Blackhawks, slowing them down, knowing that they're going to get hit, and it was all led by the big boy Lucic," Amonte said. "It's always nice to see the Boston Bruins play their style of hockey."

In the Eastern Conference Finals, the Penguins tried to match the Bruins' physicality, but were not able to create enough chances for themselves. Michael Felger and Amonte talk about the physicality of Game 2 in the video.
