Can the Bruins do to the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Finals what they did to the Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals?

On "Sports Sunday," Michael Felger asked the question to Bruins radio analyst Bob Beers and Boston Globe hockey writer Kevin Paul Dupont.

Felger was quick to answer his own question.

"No," he said. "You can't expect that in two straight series."

Dupont and Beers agreed that the Hawks offer a tougher matchup for the B's. The Stanley Cup Finals begin Wednesday night in Chicago.

"I don't see that that they're going to crumble the way Pittsburgh did," Dupont said. "Again, I'll go back to the key element on the Pittsburgh side -- lack of leadership.

"This is a much different team in terms of composure and confidence," Dupont said.

Beers added, "And they pay attention to their own zone as well."
