Montreal also had a boat load of injuries in the playoffs that year.

Lafleur played only 3 games in the playoffs after crashing his Cadillac in March, Pierre Mondou only 4, and Doug Risebrough none at all.

With Serge Savard and Guy Lapointe both banged up and getting older, Gaston Gingras, Rick Chartraw, and Gilles Lupien all suddenly had to take on more responsibility.

It also didn't help matters that 50 goal regular season scorer lucky Pierre Larouche exploded for only 1 playoff goal in 10 games.
