Also including even-strength scoring-chance numbers in the playoffs, and regular season
This post will compare each Montreal Canadiens player's scoring-chance numbers during the regular season with their numbers produced during the playoffs, as well as the numbers they posted against the Boston Bruins this season. Scoring-chance numbers communicated here only reflect those scoring-chances where the player is directly responsible for it's production.
SCORING-CHANCES FOR
As a team, the Habs produced less scoring-chances per-minute against Boston than their season average, and substantially less than the average they produced during the first round of the playoffs.
Douglas Murray (43 minutes played) was directly involved in the production of more scoring-chances per-minute played than any other Habs defenseman against the Bruins this season, while  Jarred Tinordi (12 minutes played) was a surprising second. Among Habs defensemen who have played in this year's playoffs, Andrei Markov has produced the most scoring-chances against Boston this season, while Francis Bouillon is second. Markov also produced the most ES scoring-chances per-minute against Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs.
Habs d-men produced more scoring-chances per-minute against Boston than they averaged during the season, but fewer than they averaged during the first round of the playoffs.
Among Habs centres, David Desharnais helped produce the most scoring-chances per-minute against the Bruins during the regular season. He also produced the most scoring-chances per-minute in the first round of the series.
As a group, Montreal's centres produced fewer scoring-chances per-minute against Boston during the season than they averaged during the regular season, or in the first round of the playoffs.
Thomas Vanek (24 minutes played) produced the most scoring-chances per-minute against Boston during the season. He was followed closely by Max Pacioretty (59 minutes), and Brendan Gallagher (54 minutes). That said, all 3 players averaged fewer scoring-chances per-minute against Boston than they averaged against all other NHL teams.
As a group Montreal's wingers produced less scoring-chances per-minute against Boston than their season average, and substantially less than the average they produced during the first round of the playoffs.

Jarred Tinordi (limited minutes) was responsible for substantially more scoring-chances against per-minute than the average Montreal defensemen. Among d-men who have already played in the playoffs, Mike Weaver has been directly responsible for more scoring-chances against versus Boston than any other d-man, while Bouillon has been responsible for the fewest.
Habs d-men have been responsible for fewer scoring-chances against per-minute versus Boston than they averaged during either the regular season or the playoffs.
Ryan White (8 minutes played) was directly responsible for more scoring-chances against per-minute than any other Habs forward. Among centres who have played in the playoffs, Lars Eller has been responsible for the most scoring-chances against per-minute, while Daniel Briere (some time at wing) has been responsible for the fewest.
As a group, Habs centremen have allowed more scoring-chances against per-minute versus Boston than they averaged during the first round, or against the rest of the league during the season.
Travis Moen was directly responsible for more scoring-chances against per-minute versus the Bruins this season than any other Montreal winger. Among wingers who have seen playoff action this year, Max Pacioretty, and Thomas Vanek have actually been directly responsible for more scoring-chances against versus Boston than any other wingers.
